Getting creative with wall art.
We've established that although floor space might be tight, there is one thing in a hallway that you have plenty of: walls. These can be utilised for decorative purposes by hanging photographs and artwork. A display with an array of picture frames in different sizes, colours and shapes, or a showcase of your art collection can make arresting hallways features. Mirrors can also be used to create the illusion of light and space, and wall stickers can be used to echo decorative elements throughout the rest of the house or to add a narrative to our walk through the house.
Letting in light.
Hallways rarely have windows, so natural light may be hard to come by. Some quality lighting will ensure you’re not walking around in the dark. Wall lights are a great option because they take up minimal space and can be used down the length of the hallways, as well as bringing a hint of decor to an otherwise sparsely decorated space. If you’re looking for something more dramatic or atmospheric, a chandelier or a few flush ceiling lights can lend some ambience to your halls.
Don’t forget the floor.
The hall is the ideal space for a runner rug that can be used to tie in the decor of adjoining rooms. As well as being the perfect way to add some interest to a bare space, the length of the rug can also appear to elongate cramped quarters.
