I’m almost at the Working Drawing phase of the new build. Although I’m enjoying planning with the Draftsperson, I’m anxious about overlooking anything. The hallway is one space that can be forgotten. I am inspired by some of these hallway decorating ideas.
1. Console Table
This is probably the most common and practical way to use the space. I love the symmetry of two chairs, sconce lighting and a feature piece of artwork.
2. Gallery Wall
If space is limited, a hallway provides the perfect backdrop to display artwork or photos. See my blogpost on how to style a gallery wall (here).
This hallway has the added bonus of a window seat. I also love the panelling or wainscoting.
Rather than using it just as a passageway, a hallway can make a great first impression. Adding a beautiful bench seat creates a point of interest.
Building joinery along a hallway increases storage space.
Decorative hardware on cupboard handles adds some elegance.
5. Desk Nook
Another ideal use of hallway space is for a homework/desk area. This would need to be tucked away though as I’m not sure how tidy my kids would keep it!
Which is your favourite hallway decorating idea?
