The hall usually serves as a cloakroom or a storehouse for clothes and shoes; its appearance determines the first impression of people entering the apartment. It should therefore be decorated as ingeniously as the rooms. It can be a place of interesting artistic activities, as well as color experiments and a joke. An attractive element of the hall should also be the entrance to the residential part of the house, arranged in this way, for example, so that it eliminates the division into the "better and." ,"inferior" apartment.
