10 Ways To Dress A Hallway

Hallways are often overlooked and seem to be the last place people are willing to decorate. 

If we think about what hallways are, they are really just an area in a building or home onto which rooms open…like a corridor of doors. What do you do on the walls? Art? Photo Gallery? What is the right solution for such an awkard space?

We have you covered! Below are 10 Hallways that maximize space and look amazing…

This hallway is styled to perfection, we love the gallery wall of photos and the vignette area with dresser, mirror and rug. Fresh flowers and books are always a welcoming touch if the hallway leads to your foyer.

Black or charcoal gray paint colours really pop against the white doors and trim, this look is so elgant you don’t need much artwork. The cowhide mosaic rug is a nice piece to bring all of the colours together. A black and white fabric pattern works well too.

The eye is leading directly to this dark wall at the end of the hallway, it distracts from the light taupe wall colour that almost blends in with the doors. The casual carpet runner gentle leads the eye to the photo gallery. A great place to present your favourite family photos.

This modern hallway is more of a gallery style, photos hung low with large matting and gold pendant lights hanging to light the space…simple and stylish!

Runners can be bold and their pattern might be enough to decorate the whole hallway, this soft wall colour and doors/trim combination looks amazing paired with this tribal carpet runner.

A lot of us have laundry upstairs or have a closet we dream of moving it to. This barn door painted in a light blue really makes this hallway unique and hides the laundry perfectly.

If we don’t have a linen closet in the hallway, why not create one with an old narrow armoire or glass door cabinet.

Some people enjoy putting wainscotting or a chair rail up on the bottom of the wall, this allows you to paint it out with trim paint to match all of the doors. It really makes the walls pop on the top half, the perfect compromise to a brighter colour.

This hallway is classic and has a warm cozy glow to it, from elegant sconces to lit artwork. The shelves create an interesting area with books, boxes and accessories collected from travels.
