Hallway Harmony: Creating Visual Interest and Function

Hallways play a critical role in the home connecting rooms together; however, they are often neglected when visual interest is concerned. Regardless of the size of the hallway that you’re working with, Houzz shares some inspirational interior design trends that are ideal for making your hallways come alive:

  • Add a pop of color to your hallway and elongate the space with a rug that features horizontal shapes in a variety of colors. A long runner that goes the entire length of the hallway can make a dramatic impact in a narrow space.
  • Hallways are the ideal space to display pictures. For some, this may mean using identical frames and matting to feature black and white family photos. For others that prefer less uniformity, an eclectic mix of frames is the perfect opportunity to show off some personality and an artistic vibe.
  • Plenty of storage space can go a long way in positively affecting a home’s market value, and hallways can become more functional spaces when bookcases or custom cabinetry are built into the walls.
