How to Decorate Your Hallway

 Too often hallways are neglected. Seen as the thoroughfare of the home they are often spaces that are practical, before they are beautiful. With piles of coats and shoe racks taking up the space, they are not a part of the home to spend time in.

But this is a shame. After your front door, the hallway is the first part of your home that you, or your guests, will see. It is certainly the first glimpse people get of the inside of your home and, regardless of good intentions, first impressions definitely do count.

Therefore it is important not to neglect this space. There is no reason at all why it cannot be both practical and beautiful.

One of the reasons why people, especially families, are hesitant to spend any time or money on a hallway is because they are home to a lot of busy traffic. During the school run, or on an evening, there are bodies everywhere, this means scuffs and scrapes and little bits of damage. However, porcelain tiles are extremely hardwearing. They are in fact one of the toughest materials used in the home. By lining your walls with them it can be both sturdy and beautiful.

Keep in mind that young children, the ones liable to cause damage, are small. There is a whole host of space from the waist up which you can decorate with no fear of any damage. This corridor lends itself perfectly to hanging art and pictures on the wall, giving an air of sophistication. If laid out properly it could very much resemble a gallery space.

If you have no children to worry about, then the right wallpaper can make the world of difference to your home. Patterned wall papers are making a huge come back, and the right pattern can make your hallway seem much larger than it is. Rather than a thoroughfare, it will become a walkway from one room to the next. Choose a repeating, geometric pattern for the best growth effect.
