The entrance hall is a space that all the houses have despite their size. There is always an area adjacent to the entrance door where we leave the house keys, wallet, coat, and even the shoes. Depending on the size, this space can indeed be a dream. Usually, it is the division that least concerns the residents and which is always left to the end when it comes to decoration. 

However, it is also a space that surprises us the most when adequately arranged. There are times when you enter a friends house and are surprised at first sight itself without even seeing the rest of the place. It is the same purpose we want you to apply within your home.
