Home Decoration Tip – Using Color to Add Life in Hallways

Hallways within most homes are quite often overlooked. The combined square footage of hallways in some homes is greater than the total space that is apparent within the largest room! An often overlooked home decoration tip is to use hallway space to your greatest advantage. Transform underutilized hallway space into a focal point with the creative use of color! Using this tip of adding color to the walls, ceiling and floors within a hallway space can turn what was once meaningless space into warm, welcoming home decoration winner.


The deliberate use of color can alter the appearance of hallways. For instance, light shades of color make compact hallways appear larger. Visually "shorten" the feel of a long hallway by selecting a darker tone, and paint the end wall using this color selection. To create a hallway that is wider in appearance, paint the ceiling and floors in a hue that is darker than the wall coverings. Odd shaped hallways can be given the illusion of greater balance by painting the ceiling and floors in darker shades to create a squared appearance. Remember that for hallway color choice to blend harmoniously, colors should blend with the surrounding, existing color scheme and overall décor.


As hallways are very heavily used areas, (children and pets enjoy leaving their handprints and paw prints on every conceivable spot!) it is necessary to apply durable and washable finishes such as Eggshell or Low Luster finishes.
