Many lavish home designs are often let down by their hallways- usually an amalgamated pile of all the leftover items, functions, desires and demands that cannot be accommodated elsewhere round the house. This season, spruce up your hallway to add that final touch to your scheme; not only will this make for a much neater home, but is sure to add even more character and charm to it. Whether looking to simply declutter your hallway or reinvent it completely, here are a 12 tips and tricks to get the most out of your hallway.
One of the biggest concerns when it comes to hallways is storage. To make the right impression, draw a firm line between what must be openly displayed and what needs to be securely shelved away behind doors. The neater your on-display storage, the neater your hallway! Lining a few coats for instance can actually make for a colorful and texturally indulgent composition; lining your entire shoe collection, on the other hand, not so much. From cupboards to stealth storage, console tables to seating with built-in storage, consider your options and choose carefully options in line with your storage needs.
But reinventing your hallways is about a lot more than just how you pack your stuff away. The odd spaces under staircases and strange voids that are usually found here can be an absolute nightmare if not dealt with properly- architecturally and aesthetically speaking that is. If you are indulged on space, turn these blanks into a smart set of drawers or other enclosed units; you can easily store your bikes, toys and chunky items here. On the other hand, if your hallway is narrow and dim in tone, opening this space up can make it feel a lot more spacious and free flowing.
