Hallways don’t often get the design love they deserve, but with a little creativity, they can be transformed into beautiful and functional spaces. When you think of the word “hallway,” what comes to mind? Some might imagine a long, narrow space with nobody around for miles on end. But this isn’t true! In fact, many homes have their own personal hallway that is often overlooked by homeowners in favor of other rooms in the house like bedrooms and bathrooms.” The good news is there are plenty of ways we can make your home’s Hall Way stand out from others.
Here are ideas to get you started:
Paint the walls a bold color
Painting the walls a bold color like yellow or orange will make your space feel bigger and more vibrant. Maintaining an open floor plan by painting in bright colors is perfect for creating an atmosphere because it’s eye-catching, which draws people into this new environment that you’ve created with such personality.
Add some wallpaper
Wallpaper is a great way to add pattern and interest to a space. If you’re not sure what direction you want to go with your space, start by browsing through some design magazines or online for inspiration. Once you find a wallpaper you love, head to your local home improvement store to purchase it. If you’re not ready to commit to an entire roll of wallpaper, consider using remnant pieces to create an accent wall.
Hang some art
Hanging art in your home can be one of the best ways to add personality and make it feel like a personal space. There is no shortage of ideas for what type you should hang; from framed photos or paintings, prints are always an excellent choice because they’re easy on wall space while still being eye-catching.
Install a bench
Installing a bench in your hallway will provide you with more than just storage space. Not only can it serve as an oasis for walking between classes, but this same piece of furniture has the ability to be used by students sitting outside their classroom during outdoor lunch periods or after-school activities.
Add a rug
One of the best ways to make your home feel like it has more space is by adding rugs. Ranging in color, pattern, and size there’s an option for every room. A runner rug can be used as an accent piece or alongside furniture in long hallways where they’ll help break up clutter on floors making them appear less overwhelming while defining boundaries at the same time – perfect if you’re planning ahead when designing an open floor plan layout with lots going on beyond just walls.”
Hang a chandelier
When in doubt, hang something up. The chandelier is one of the most versatile and beautiful pieces that you can use for lighting. There are so many shapes to choose from: crystal or metal sconces on either side with candles inside; long chains made out of different materials like wood pulp paper-covered wires wrapped around an iron rod below where they meet at upper levels – these have been known as “wet” bogies because water seems almost unavoidable when looking through them after dark.
Use a console table
Console tables offer a place to put decorations or other things you might need in your hallway, which is perfect for small spaces. Console table storage plus aesthetic appeal makes these pieces versatile and stylish enough that they can be used anywhere from an entryway all the way up high on tile walls where there’s limited floor space available.
Add some plants
Adding plants to your hallway is a great way to add life and color to the space. Not only will they help to purify the air, but they can also act as a natural decoration. If you’re not sure which plants are right for you, visit your local nursery or garden center for help.
Install sconces to bring elegance and style into your home. Sconce lighting is an easy way to add atmosphere without taking up too much floor or wall space. There are many different styles available, so you can find the perfect ones for any look.
Create a gallery wall
Gallery walls provide an opportunity for you not only to express your creativity but also to share it with the world. There are many ways that people have displayed their personal art in galleries- from hanging single images on one long wall all the way down to creating a tunnel of sorts by stacking things like newspapers and magazines high enough so they’ll reach floor level without having any patrons walk through them.
There are many different ways that you can update your home hallway, and these are just ten ideas to get you started. No matter what you choose to do, remember that it’s important to personalize the space in order to make it feel like your own. So get creative, have fun, and most importantly, enjoy.
