Hall Design Ideas

Primarily serving as a means to get from one room to another, hallways don’t get much design love. But these simple spaces can be a joy to remodel, and even add some extra function to the square footage. For inspiring hall design ideas, browse the collection of hallway photos at the design photos page. The following remodeling tips will help your design plans move along smoothly.

Common Hall Design Mistakes to Avoid

After spending time looking through professional hall design photos, it’s easy to get excited about a remodeling project. Of course, you’ll need to balance design goals with your own home layout and budget parameters. Below are a few common hall design mistakes homeowners make, and how you can avoid making them yourself: Overlooking your specific layout parameters. Many beautiful hallway pictures feature wide halls and abundant natural light. Be careful about replicating design elements exactly if your own hall doesn’t include these features. For example, a deep color hue in a design photo may be stunning when balanced by large windows, but can seem claustrophobic in a smaller, windowless space. Forgetting about storage possibilities. Even narrow hallways can present wonderful opportunities for additional home storage. Shallow open shelving, floating book shelves, and hooks all take up little space, and can easily be included in your hall design ideas. Neglecting lighting. Lighting is both a functional and decorative element in interior design, and is often overlooked in hallways. Overhead light fixtures are great ways to make a style statement, and wall sconces are another way to add ambience without taking up precious floor space.

How to Choose the Right Hall Décor

No matter the size or scope of your remodeling project, you can approach hall design with an appreciation for small spaces. The key is to incorporate decorative elements without taking up much, if any, square footage: this mainly means looking to the wall for décor opportunities. Architectural details like wainscoting and chair rails, for example, add visual interest without taking up room. Mirrors and lighter colors make narrow hallways seem naturally more spacious. For bigger hall remodeling projects, you can even incorporate interesting materials into the walls themselves for a dramatic effect. If you aren’t sure where to start with your hallway décor, check out the design photo gallery. There, you’ll find a variety of hall decorating ideas from real homes, posted by professional contractors. You can even save the most inspiring photos for future reference, which is a handy tool as you narrow down your décor plans.
