A hall or entryway is the first impression a guest has when entering your home.
Depending on the home, halls can be blank, dark, or both.
Adding the right décor can give you a space that guests are happy to linger in — and to experience the unique touches the represent your personality while giving them a taste of the décor awaiting them throughout the home.
Mirrors can brighten the look of a dim hallway by reflecting the light from a lamp or overhead fixture — this is a technique used for centuries in areas with less natural light and the effect can be the difference between night and day.
In addition to brighter lighting, mirrors can also add an open feeling to a smaller space with the optical illusion effect of extra square feet.
With a healthy selection of mirrors by size and shape, there is one for any décor taste — in fact, mirrors are also a favorite with DIY enthusiasts for their versatility in crafting.
Transitioning from one space to the next can be done without taking notice of your surroundings but opting for a different paint shade in the hall sets that area apart as something to be noticed on its own.
In connecting spaces, an ombre effect can be employed to add a fun balance between the separation and integration of each room.
Opting for a varying color also adds more variety to your home’s palette.
In homes where a paint palette is pre-chosen, adding colorful pieces to a hall can liven things up without a complete overhaul.
Consider using your favorite color or a jewel tone to contrast muted hues.
Accent furniture, tapestries, and tabletop pieces can all tie together with a color theme for a fun boost.
Books add a personal touch to any space by showcasing your taste in reading and using them in a hall or entryway brings your personality to the forefront of your décor.
How often have you stopped in your tracks to look at a book whose cover caught your eye — that’s the opportunity you present to your guests as they enter your home and are greeted by some of your favorite titles.
The bonus to using books as a means of décor is that it makes fun use of your necessary storage.
Putting a new coat of paint and/or hardware on your entry door or hallway doors livens up a hall with minimal effort.
This quick and efficient means of dressing up a hall can also be helpful in identifying individual rooms by color if you prefer a varied palette — or it can unify the space with one hue.
Incorporating plant life into your hall décor scheme adds a cozy touch that not only cheerfully greets your guests but also welcomes you home whenever you walk in the door.
Using live plants helps to purify the air while beautifying a space — however, opting for faux foliage can add the desired look without the daily upkeep for folks without a green thumb.
Finally, if the space permits, add a console table that provides both storage and style.
In halls with a wide area, a table can pull the decor together and cancel out the feeling of negative space.
In a narrow hall, a clear acrylic table can give you the storage option you need without pulling from the overall footprint of the space.
