The hallway: a space which rhymes with “decorative impasse” far too often. But a change of perspective is enough to realise the countless opportunities this often narrow passage has to offer.
As in many other cases, its weakness is actually its strongest suit. Simply acknowledging its narrowness and filling it with elements which compliment this main attribute will turn it into a well-thought space, and a functional, aesthetic gem. Here are 6 ideas that can transform yours into a cool-corridor.
3. Artistic space
To give the eyes some candy, art amateurs can choose various themes, perhaps even mixing them: paintings, photographs, sculptures, masks and other collectible objects, all put forward by savvy lighting.
4. Storage space
Use its whole length to incorporate storage furniture: from shoe racks to a tiny cloak closet, you will maximise its room for sure! The extra mile? Choose the furniture colour so that it seamlessly blends into the decor, and surround it with accessories to distract the eye from its practical aspect.
5. Bigger space
Play with colours, lighting, and, most of all, long mirrors to create an optical illusion which will make your space look augmented. Don’t forget that a wisely chosen wallpaper that is used in parsimony is your friend.
Whether you opt for one of these ideas, or even mix them, the only limit to the possibilities your corridor offers is your imagination. Free it, and witness what it can accomplish.
