Squeezing Style into a Narrow Hallway

Hallways. They’re usually a necessary feature in any non-studio home. Unfortunately, hallways are far too often treated as dead space, where the owners will slap on a coat of paint and call it “good enough.” But just because they are designed to take us from Point A to Point B doesn’t exclude hallways from becoming a noteworthy Point C. Yes, even your long, narrow hallway can exude style and warmth.

This narrow hallway works well as an art gallery; tons of natural light from the opposite wall serves to highlight the pieces beautifully.

If your hallway is not only narrow but monochromatic as well, feel free to make this combination a stand-out feature by adding a punch of color on a cheerful runner rug.

If doorways throughout the length of your hallway interfere with the potential for an art gallery, consider hanging interesting lighting to be its own artwork.

Are you artistic? Forget the frames…paint your own mural onto the wall itself. You could achieve a similar look with carefully selected wallpaper.

Maybe you don’t have a large collection of artwork yet; consider decorating your narrow hallway with well-placed empty frames. For best results, use interesting frames from a similar color palette.

Turn your hallway into a functional as well as beautiful space by making it do double- (or triple-) duty: walkway, art gallery (with floating picture shelves), and storage space (wall-attached storage boxes).
