Hallways don’t have to be boring and plain – with a little creativity, they can be stylish and inviting spaces in your home. Hallways are often overlooked spaces in our homes. They can be judgmental, dingy, or dirty with ornate flooring that makes them uninviting to walk on-cleaner surfaces will create better feelings about these areas of your house! An elegant design aesthetic is perfect for redesigning hallways by using lighter colors than elsewhere within the dwelling since this type of furniture has a tendency not only to show dirt but also collect it too; creating an environment where one does not want even touch their shoes while walking through due consideration given towards aesthetics along with your personal preference when choosing paint hues will ensure the best results.
If your hallway is long and narrow, you can use light colors to make it appear more spacious. For a shorter hallway, you can use darker colors to make it feel cozier. You can also add visual interest to your hallway by using a different color scheme than the rest of your house.
Here are ten ideas to get you started:
Use light colors
When you’re trying to make a space feel larger, lighter colors are more effective than darker hues. The light reflects off these surfaces and makes your surroundings seem spacious as well! To create this effect in an interior design setting – use lighter shades on walls or ceilings; softer wood floors instead of hardwood ones so they don’t hurt anyone’s feet when walking around them during dinner time (or other litigated events); flowy fabric curtains over windows which let plenty natural light come through without blocking any views outside–allowing someone who lives there or guests to feel in control and/or relaxed when situated within this decorated hall type area.
Paint the walls
One easy way to change up your doorstep is by painting it! You can use a different color scheme than what you have in other areas, or go with something more neutral for an all-around bow-wow appeal. One special thing about this project? There are endless possibilities when considering how much paint and brushes are needed – making sure they match exactly what’s on hand will ensure success (and don’t forget the protection gear!).
Use dark colors
Dark colors have been used for centuries to make people feel at home. They create an atmosphere that is cozy and inviting, which makes it perfect in long hallways where you want guests’ attention focused on your entrance rather than how short they are walking or running (which also means faster decorating!). You can use dark hues as a way of creating drama with smaller spaces by increasing their importance through size alone.
Wallpaper is one of the most cost-effective ways to decorate your home. It’s quick and easy, plus you can change it whenever you want. For our family room, we choose a patterned wallpaper that matches nicely with Indian patterns on other pieces in this area as well such as cushions or quilts (you could even get rid of these if they aren’t too distracting). There are so many different designs out there – take some time to browse around until something catches your eye then go for it because trust me…you won’t regret spending just another few dollars more than what was planned initially when investing in new furniture pieces for this hallway redo project.
Hanging art is a great way to add personality to your hallway. You can use family photos, artwork, or even mirrors. Just make sure that the art is at eye level so that people will be able to enjoy it as they walk by.
Plants are a great way to add life to your hallway. They can brighten up the space and make it feel more welcoming. Plus, they’re good for the environment!
