A hallway is an interior that often goes to the background when arranging a house, and yet it is its business card. It must not be lacking above all a spacious wardrobe, which will make it a functional interior. How to choose a piece of furniture that looks beautiful?

What kind of closet to the hallway?

The hallway must not lack space to store and segregate outerwear, footwear and other items of clothing. A spacious wardrobe is perfect for this purpose. If the furniture is big enough, we can also fit a vacuum cleaner, an iron or a cleaner.

However, not always a spacious wardrobe is a good choice. It can overwhelm a small hallway and make it difficult to move around freely. Then it is worth giving it up in favour of a minimalist shelf for shoes and a simple hanger, on which you will find a place for the most commonly used outer clothing.

The wardrobe you decide to choose depends on the size of the hallway. Only then does the style in which we furnish the interior matter, as well as our individual preferences.

Freestanding cabinets

This is one of the most popular options, especially if you have a large hallway. It can be a unique decoration of the interior, especially when you decide on a piece of furniture made of solid wood.

In this case, it is better to give up soft wood (e.g. pine, birch, larch) in favour of hard wood (oak, ash). In the hallway it is not difficult to find mechanical damage, and hard wood is simply more resistant to it. Additionally, it looks beautiful.

We should avoid wardrobes made of wood-based materials. Although they are cheaper and at first glance look as good as those made of solid wood, they are less resistant, especially to moisture, and it is worth noting that in the hallway it is not difficult to splash water on the furniture.

However, if you decide on wood-based materials, choose a varnished cabinet. Not only is it protected against the harmful effects of moisture, but it also looks good.

Built-in cabinets

Another solution, which is becoming more and more popular, are built-in cabinets. They are particularly recommended for small rooms as they make maximum use of the available space. When choosing this option, you should pay attention first of all to the filling of the wings. They can be made from, among other things:

  • Particle board,
  • solid wood,
  • glass,
  • rattan plates,
  • bamboo slabs

All the above options are characterized by a unique appearance and high durability. Therefore, we can successfully use them in the hallway, regardless of the style in which we furnish it, although we must admit that rattan and bamboo plates are more suited to traditional interiors and marine style.

  • Broken wings - they will work well in a small hallway,
  • Sliding sashes - just like the first variant, they are a good choice for small interiors,
  • Tilt&Turn sashes - suitable for large halls.

Regardless of what type of wardrobe you decide to choose, you must pay attention to its filling. This is because it determines the functionality of the wardrobe. There must be a bar on which you can hang your coats and jackets on hangers. There should be shelves and drawers where you can store other items of clothing, such as hats, scarves and gloves. In modern cabinets, iron or vacuum cleaner holders are usually installed as well.

To sum up, choosing a wardrobe for the hallway is quite a challenge. The first thing you need to do is to adjust its dimensions to the size of the room. Not without significance is also the durability and aesthetics of the furniture, which is largely determined by the material from which the wardrobe was made. If you are looking for a practical solution, you should also check the filling of the model.
