A long hallway can either be a reminder of a scary movie or walk on the runway- a.k.a disastrous or fabulous! Here are a few helpful tips to inspire and make you think twice about hallways!
- Define the space. Use a runner, artwork, benches and lighting to actually create a design in the hallway. Not only that, it will add color, texture and warmth.
- Make a statement! The hallway doesn’t just have to be 2 white walls. Add dramatic lighting, pops of color with art or large printed wallpaper. This space can be used to tell any story you want.
- Create an optical illusion. If this hallway is your problem area, you can create an illusion to make it look a certain way with the sizes, colors and pieces you choose. For example, if your hallway needs to open up, add a mirror and lighting to illuminate the area . If your hallway is way too long without anything going on, add a console or small accent chairs to fill the empty space.
The designers of the hallway spaces above really thought outside of the box to create a one of kind look in something that is usually left so empty! Patterned runners, painted ceilings, over-sized artwork and mirrors- the sky is the limit when it comes to interior design! We pulled a few unique pieces from a few of our favorite stores that will really add a punch to a hallway design.
