The design of hallways, mudrooms, and entryways sometimes requires even more effort than the design of living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens. On the one hand, the design of these walk-through rooms should fit into the overall style of the home. On the other hand, the interior of hallways should be functional. A hallway usually connect several rooms so you will see it every time you go from a kitchen to a living room or from a living room to a bedroom. Here are our tips to make your hallways as cool and practical as possible:

  • Use built-ins if you need some additional storage space. Otherwise, a side table to display some art is more than enough.
  • Add a pop of color. You can use a bold color for walls or for furniture. Either way your hallway design would win.
  • Decorate your hallway with a gallery art wall or photos on ledges. This kind of decor doesn’t occupy any floor space but looks great.
  • A rug could make even a dark hallway cozier.
  • A dramatic wallpaper with an interesting pattern is another way to spice up any space.
  • Several pendant lights is the best solution for long hallways. Although if you have some furniture there you can also use table lamps or hidden LED strips.
  • Add a touch of your favorite style to it. Industrial objects, shabby chic furniture, or a modern light fixture could easily add a personal touch to hallway’s design.
  • Not only walls could be painted in a bold color but ceilings too. Besides you can add an interesting moldings to it or warm up with natural wood.

Below you’ll find a lot of hallway decor ideas to inspire your next renovation or a DIY project. Enjoy!
