Entrance area and corridor shape in 42 examples

The entrance area of ​​a house or apartment is the border between the outside world and your own kingdom. This area, which is still known as a foyer, does not only serve to go from outside to inside and vice versa, but quite clearly separates the private from the public. The foyer is also a neutral zone in the house, which is neither inside nor outside, which makes it a suitable waiting or reception area.

And how would you design your house entrance?

Let's take a closer look at an exemplary entrance area! Even if you intuitively set up your front door and think that you do not have enough interior design skills, you will come to an end result that is hardly different from a designer's.

This is because we perceive the above-mentioned limit deep in our heads and unconsciously provide the foyer with all the items belonging to the "border area".

The boundary between inside and outside is the house entrance

What do you do whenever you enter the apartment or the house? They discard everything that belongs to the term "outside". You take off your shoes, take off your coat and hat, put down your umbrella and maybe even a suitcase. These "rituals" are self-evident, but also incredibly important, because only this gives you the feeling of being at home, to feel clearly. The same applies vice versa, if you want to leave the house and get ready for your daily tasks.

In the foyer you get the first impression about the personality of the inhabitants

In the entrance you get but also the first impression about the inhabitants of the house and their way of life. Whether you like it or not, the character and thus the lifestyle leave a recognizable trace everywhere in the apartment or in the house. You could say that even the tyrant says something about the character, but let's just stay in the foyer and see how we can make the hallway. Everything here is relevant - the choice of materials, the wardrobe, the shoe cupboard, the mirror and even the wall design and the flooring. A decoration, which is oriented to the own style and contributes to the good first impression, is also desired.
