How to make the most of your hallway.
The hallways is often an ignored space within the home, normally a dumping ground for shoes, coats, keys and post! Clever storage solutions and stylish lighting can give your previously ignored hallway a real ‘wow’ factor.
Remember that your hallway is the first space that guests see when they enter your home so give it some personality and the attention it deserves.
Bring in some light
Hallways often lack windows so adding mirrors to your hallway is a great way to bring in some light. Adding mirrors will also make an area seem bigger so this is a perfect decoration trick!
The Hallway is the perfect place to experiment with your decor, unlike a bedroom or kitchen, you’ll just pass through this space rather than linger - the perfect place to experiment. Chose a vibrant colour, statement carpet or a bold pattern to create an eye-catching first impression.
Wallpaper has made a huge comeback and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be using wallpaper in your hallway. You could go bold and bright or pick something calm and elegant to compliment a period home- the choice is endless.
Tip: Always consider the size of your hallway when it comes to wallpapering as large designs will overpower a small hallway. Stripes and trailing patterns always work well in larger if your lucky enough to have one.
