Bright sitting area with a wood-burning fireplace in this home in Munich, Germany.

I much prefer the Flur and don’t find it claustrophobic. As someone who has an apartment in both Manhattan (open plan small one bedroom) and in Munich (small two bedroom with two Flurs – an entry hallway with doors opening to the kitchen and living area as well as a hallway off the living area that has bedrooms and baths opening off it) i love that the befroom Flur has a tremendous amount of built-in, unobtrusive, and very handy storage. The bedroom wing Flur also has a frosted glass pane door that shuts it off from the living area so it more easily allows someone to sleep and someone to stay up late without having noise/light issues.

Plus i think the entry Flur feels so much more welcoming because you come in to an apartment in an area that is meant for taking your bearings, putting down packages, hangungup your coat etc. It’s ceremonial in a way – it makes you pause and acknowledge that you are home. In my apartment the ceiling in the entry Flur is lower by a few inches than the rest of the aartment and it is darker so that when you pass through it into the larger and more bright main space you really notice those qualities about the space and feel a sort of lightness. I think the entry Flur is one of the prettiest places in the apartment and the bedroom wing Flur is one of the most useful places.

In my Manhattan apartment I essentially walk right into a living room and open kitchen. It’s a very nice and bright apartement but you feel as though you have no place to hide – every slight mess is immediately on display; every time you turn on a TV or even the oven, everybody (well, my husband and cats anyway) knows it. It’s a little anxiety producing.
