make your hallway a destination to enjoy

Are the hallways in your home adding or detracting to your home’s décor? It’s entirely possible to make your hallway a destination and not just a pass-through between larger spaces.

Admittedly, some corridors are quite small and are riddled with doors into other spaces. You can still add interest and style by creating a photo or art gallery.

Show It Off

Of course, you don’t need a hallway full of doors to embrace gallery style. I love this light-filled art gallery designed by Abramson Teiger Architects. Chances are you don’t even notice the doorways off to the right (at least not at first glance).

A space needn’t be particularly large to be enjoyable. That means you can absolutely transform a narrow hallway into a place of respite.

If you’re blessed with a window in your hallway, take advantage of the natural light!

Place a chair or bench beneath the window to enjoy the sunshine, a good book, and your favourite beverage.

Fantastic Niches

With or without a window, construction sometimes needs to box out certain elements of a home. Though not always ideal, the result can be a fantastic niche (or several).

Custom built-ins are a great way to add storage and create the exact look you want.

These types of architectural details can also make a narrow hall feel much more open and spacious.

When you’ve got a hallway that’s not crunched for space, there’s really no excuse for leaving it undecorated.

Keep in mind, decorated needn’t mean complicated or overdone. Simplicity in design can be a beautiful thing.

If it suits your needs, add some comfortable seating, lighting, and a small side table.

Some hallways are wide enough that they’re almost rooms in their own right.

Treat them as their own unique area and create a functional space to enjoy.
