How to Décor your Hallway

What are your first thoughts when thinking about a décor project for a corridor at your home? This can be a bit tricky. I do confess that decorating a hallway is a process that often comes up with some challenges since it’s usually a narrow and sometimes, a dark space.

But of course, when using creativity and good decor tricks, you can make the most of it. In addition, a hallway is a place in the house that works as the entrance to your world, it is not necessary to be afraid of strong colours or more unusual decorative objects.

Just always remember that the first and most fundamental tip is to make sure that whatever you’re planning doesn’t take up too much space. After all, it is a space used for passing through. With that in mind, check out some ideas that show you how to decorate a hallway of any size.

Monochromatic is something quite personal. The technique itself creates an environment with a lot of personalities. When combined with the carpet coloured in shades it can guarantee a very fun environment.

Choosing two colours: one for the sidewalls and another for the back wall can be another idea to give more life to the space.  As well as when applying it to the ceiling, the colours can certainly make the ceiling look higher.


The use of mirrors makes a big difference in this environment, bringing more natural light and much more spaciousness to the space.

By placing a mirror at one end, facing the opposite wall, the passage seems much longer. Natural light is enhanced by the round mirror, with golden edges to decorate with the decorative objects on the shelf. Mirrors are winners!

Creating a gallery wall is the most intuitive way to decorate a hallway! With a lot of creativity and some personal touch, you can always make your corridor stands out with some posters and frames, for example.

With dark tones to create a neutral base, the environment accommodated several super coloured frames that left a very cool air.

Here is another winner. But for those who think that creating a gallery leaves a very serious atmosphere in the environment, there is an even more relaxed option: collages!

The trick gives a more personal touch to the environment and can be done either with magazine clippings or with original drawings and watercolours. To make the rider even fresher, why not leaving one of your favourite accessories or pieces of furniture there too?

The best way to solve low storage space is using functional furniture. In addition to being original, the solution gives residents more storage options. IT also can give the space a lot of personal touches if chosen the right piece.

As mentioned before, the walls of this corridor became the protagonists and made the space, which is usually forgotten, much more pleasant and joyful. The use of dishes on the wall, an original option, made everything even more fun!

Scandinavian Style

Scandinavian style is always about being simple and essential. If you combine the right colours such as green and black, the result can be a nice surprise.

The dark palette of blacks and greens immediately connects to the environment at the side, with a heavier Scandinavian accent, which works the same colours, but in a different way: green completely covers the wall while black mixes with white on a floor with geometric patterns. The result is cool and elegant.
