Dark, interior and small … that’s the way most of the receivers are, the ugly duckling at home, but it does not have to be that way! The decoration of small receivers can be a challenge, but nothing is impossible, you just need to apply some simple tricks and put a little illusion so that your receiver looks as it deserves.
Think that although it has become a space for many forgotten, the small receivers, or the largest, are our letter of presentation, it is always the first thing that can be seen and can be interpreted as an extension of the decorative style of the rest of the house. In addition, it is about the stay that welcomes you when you get home, the one that receives you, the prelude to your authentic refuge.
To make small receivers a good cover letter try to follow the following steps:
- The hall should reflect your style and decorative tastes, in addition to being in tune with the rest of the house.

- The decoration of the hall must be functional to allow us to keep or leave those objects that we consider necessary: leave the keys, correspondence and the bag, when we get home, review our appearance before leaving, even, in some cases, it becomes the place where we leave footwear, warm clothes or umbrellas.
- Try, always and in any case not overly filling things, it is important to be clear. It is a place of passage, so the decoration and furniture chosen should facilitate and allow transit without impediments.
