Every house has some kind of an entrance and a hallway. It’s generally located at the front entrance of the house and it’s the first thing your guests see when they visit you. The bad thing is that it usually doesn’t get enough attention during your decorating process. For flooring, people choose only practical materials like linoleum or ceramic tiles to make floors there easy to clean. Walls are usually simply painted or covered with wood planks. Of course, nobody is thinking about an interesting design for ceilings there.
Besides, many suburban American houses also have a mud room. It’s a perfect place to organize storage for footwear and outwear. So it’s acting as an additional storage for a hallway and help to save the cleanliness of a house. If you don’t have a mudroom but have a long hallway that’s connecting several rooms, it’s a great idea to turn into one.

It’d be easy to throw dirty clothes in them right away.
