7 Ways To Spice Up A Bland Hallway

The hallways that connect main rooms like bedrooms, living rooms, and kitchens, are just as important as the rooms themselves. Even if you don’t have a lot of room to work with, you can make your hallway just as special as the room it leads you to.

A simple way to brighten up your hallway is with a colorful rug. If you don’t have other interesting design elements in your hallway, simply pick a rug with your favorite bright colors and watch the space come alive.

If you’re working with an extra long hallway, try a picture gallery. Place framed photos of different sizes all along the wall, and not an inch of it will be boring. Use family photos to make your gallery more interesting.

If you don’t love the idea of filling your wall with photos, or are overwhelmed at the thought of filling that many frames, try a wall lined with mirrors instead. Mirrors will also bring additional light to your space.

If you’re lucky enough to have a wide hallway, take advantage of it by installing built in cabinetry. This will provide you more storage and display place.

Most hallways don’t have natural lighting, or at least not a lot of it. Install pendant lighting to brighten up your hallway while adding interesting style to it at the same time.

You can never have too many books. Add either a built-in or purchased book case to a wider hallway for both utility and aesthetics. Filling the shelves with interesting books will lend your hallway a unique, homey element.

For a bold option, try a wall mural. These floor to ceiling murals are definitely not subtle, but certainly will leave your hallway eye-catching.
