Even though hallways are primarily pathways between rooms, they can be so much more if designed well. Although hallway is a small space, decorating ideas for it are numerous. Adding built-in bookcases or shelves to display books or interesting knickknacks is first that comes to mind. A photo wall collage can turn your hallway into a daily reminder of good times with those you love, and some artwork or mirrors can transform it into a gallery. With a little effort and some strategically placed decor, your hall interior can easily enhance your entire home’s aesthetic and style.
If you need storage, utilizing the hallway is great way to save space and gives your hallway another purpose. If your hallway or entryway is very narrow, think about vertical surface of the walls, so that you can avoid crowding your space and having obstacles in your walking space.
Don’t use full-sized furniture, but try to incorporate built-in bookcases and skinny console tables to house your library and collectibles. When decorating, wall space is key, but don’t forget about your ceilings and floors as well. Ceiling lights, chandeliers or wall sconces can act as additional decor, while runner rugs are a quick, easy way to add color and pattern to a traditionally all-neutral space.
You can transform your hallway from a simple path from one room to another, to stylish room that has its own charm. Inject classic design into any thoroughfare – think beveled mirrors and elegant wall sconces – or choose homey furnishings like potted plants and woven baskets. Top an antique hat tree with a collection of pretty straw bonnets to complement a Victorian foyer.
Drape the wall with a colorful Native American blanket to dress up a western-style walkway. Add modern storage to the mix with contemporary cupboards and box benches accented with pillows splashed in graphic prints. Mix and match metal and wood picture frames for a pastoral photo wall. And there are many more ideas…
So get inspired by these amazing hallway design ideas.
