Basic plan of a rural house in Ukraine. The middle room is an entryway called sieni
An entryway is a hall that is generally located at the front entrance of a house. An entryway often has a coat closet, and usually has linoleum or tile flooring rather than carpet, making it an easy-to-clean transition space between the outdoor and indoor areas. Many houses do not have an entryway; in these the front door leads to a foyer, or directly into the living room or some other room in the house.
Many suburban American houses have a mud room, a casual, generally secondary entryway intended as an area to remove and store footwear, outerwear, and wet clothing before entering the main house. As well as providing storage space, a mud room serves to increase the cleanliness of a house proper.
In the Slavic culture the entryway is called sieni or sien. Such an entry room was a transitional room which served as a storage for the outdoor clothing or footwear. In rural areas such room traditionally also used as a lobby separating other rooms of a house such as a storage, bedroom, and others.
