Hallways are often thought to go unnoticed by guests, so many find it pointless to decorate them. But we neglect the fact that the hallway is the path through our home. It is a space that we travel on to get to our destination. Here are a few tips to make you and your guests fall in love with every part of your home, including your hallway.
Depending on the size and layout, you can add a narrow side table and push it against one of your walls. An area rug can be used for comfort and texture.

Photo galleries are still a hot topic. Choose a few of your favorite art pieces. I recommend different shapes and sizes, especially in a hallway to fill up an empty wall. Also when choosing picture frames don’t be afraid to mix and match colors. If your space still looks a little empty add a bench to sharpen the look.

If the thought of creating an art gallery gives you a headache, create a quick masterpiece by stringing wire along your wall and attaching your favorite photos to complete the look. This fills up the void on your walls and gives off an inviting feeling to yourself and your guests while roaming your halls. Sheepskin is also perfect for creating a cozy atmosphere.
Black walls may seem like it can tighten up a hallway space. Most of the time hallways are narrow, but with the right accessories it will open up a hallway. Adding a large mirror gives off an illusion that a space is actually larger than it seems.

If the thought of black walls stresses you out and seems a little too bold, break it up with a lighter color on top and portion off however much space fancies you. With plain walls add a credenza and your favorite accessories on top for a complete look.

Bring life to your hallway by adding a large and in charge plant and adding a few baby ones to accompany it. When adding art to your hallway experiment with placing pieces on your floor and overlapping a few of them. Don’t limit yourself with just the walls, your hallway is the best place to have fun and let loose.
