Thinking about decorating your home usually inspires you to think about decorating your living room, bedroom or even your kitchen or bathroom. But rarely, does your hallway come to mind first. It is only logical. After all, you spend the least of your time there. However, it is a part of your home that people and you see the first once they get in, so it is an important part of the first impression about your home. Therefore, here are some ideas about how to make that hallway a nicer and a stylish place.
Think about all the things that you can do with the walls. Painting, decorating, hanging pictures, photos, coat hangers and other things that go there. However, keep in mind that a narrow space doesn’t really stand dark colors, cluttered look or too many details. If you want to make it look more spacious, you should use mirrors. In order to make it look more stylish, try finding mirrors with cool frames, decoupage them yourself or decorate it with photos of your loved ones. If you have enough space, you can have some stylish options like cork panels or wood. More casual and playful way would be covering a wall with chalkboard paint and go wild with colorful chalks.
Less is more when it comes to hallway furniture. Go with a chair if there’s place, and a fun thing to do is to make it a stylish, mock Lui XIV style chair. It would be a nice touch, but only if the rest of the hallway is pretty basic.
Photos, paintings and decorations all depend on the size of the hallway, more precisely, it’s width. One very interesting option is to use rope and with the use of knots, make a net over the entire wall. Then, you can hang photos on it, as well as other details as flowers, dry or fresh, shells and other interesting things. It is easy to hang them on and off so you can change it all the time.
