Decorate with wall stencils
Have extra space under your staircase? Make the most of it with a pretty wall stencil. Turn it into a reading corner by adding a transparent chair and lights for the perfect cosy space.
Make use of an alcove space
Don’t let that space go to waste! Alcoves are often home to bulky furniture that doesn’t quite fit or a single, lonely shelf. It’s a crime to let such a versatile chunk of space go to waste when everyone’s dream is to own a home with more storage.
Add floating shelves
Floating shelves keep a hallway neat and clutter-free, which will make it feel more spacious – it also adds personality to a plain wall.
Utilise staircase space
Here, the space below the stairs has been cleverly utilised as a storage area. A pine chest of drawers is neatly tucked away along with coat pegs and a seater.
Make a music room
Hallways don’t always have to be a place to hang your coats. If you’re not blessed with a wealth of space, why not turn yours into a living space in itself? A piano with a French polish adds immediate drama and style.
Keep clutter hidden
A sturdy trunk, or a seat with built-in storage, serves as a great place to stash shoes and umbrellas, and also provides a place to perch when taking off your footwear.
Add a console table
Add a classic white console table to your hallway and antique-style ornate mirror for a chic, feminine dressing room feel. It’s a great place to store smaller items that you’re otherwise rushing around to find in the morning.
Display your antiques
Display beautiful antique furniture proudly in your hallway as an eye-catching feature that serves as practical storage, too. Dark furniture set against a brilliant white wall is an interesting contrast.
Bring the outdoors in
Choose light flooring to add a sense of spaciousness to even the smallest of hallways. Stone tiles are enjoying a huge revival on walls and floors, and the hallway is the ideal space in which to go to town with rustic designs.
Opt for artwork
Hallways don’t have to be dull and boring – add some artwork and streamlined furniture for a modern and interesting room. We love these water hyacinth storage baskets, perfect for storing everything from keys to gloves!
