31 Wonderful Hallway Ideas to Revitalize Your Home

Featured Image: Dreamstime.com

Hallways. You probably don’t think much about yours. Often, they’re simply a windowless walkway. A straight line, to get from point A to point B. It’s not a place you generally linger, like your kitchen island or family room sofa. There’s no place to sit down. Nothing to look at. What if instead of a closed-off corridor, it was a gallery, a library or even an architectural highlight of your home? Hallways can do more than connect rooms, they can reflect you, the homeowner.

How they reflect you depends on the size of your hallways and your style, of course. You’re not going to squeeze a console table into a three-foot wide hallway, and you’re probably going to need more than a few 8×10 pictures if you have a long hallway that’s five feet wide. As with any design, you have to consider scale and function along with style. Here are just a few hallway decorating ideas.

FAMILY GALLERY

Breeze Giannasio Interiors

A terrific idea in this hallway for displaying those precious family portraits and pictures from favorite vacations spots and events.

COLORFUL LATTICE

The grid of black and white frames is offset by colorful photos and complemented by the grid on the globe-like lights. The wave-patterned rug adds whimsy and a pop of color to an otherwise white-washed walkway.

FINAL FOCAL POINT

Paul Fritz Architecture/Planning

With the beautifully displayed sculptures at the end of the hall, you will want to get from point A to point B a little faster. And though the sculptures are clearly the focus of this hallway, the colorful flush mounts will entertain your eyes until you can examine the souvenirs displayed at point B.

GALLERY TO MASTER

Really cool contemporary bookcases that you’ll notice aren’t standard design.   Also love the lighted nooks at the end of the hallway to feature your favorite tsatskes.

FOUND A NICHE

Monumental wall of niches!  Looks like each 24″x24″ niche holds a special treasure.

DARK & DRAMATIC

An exquisite hallway to feature this homeowner’s special accent pieces.  Rich, dark and dramatic.

MODERN MEDIA

Wonderful Hallway Ideas to Revitalize Your Home - Sebring Design Build

Contemporary Hall

Just goes to show that anything can be a source of inspiration to perk up a hallway.  In this case, it’s the Beatles, but it can be any type of music, movies, etc.

Galleries,  Sculptures, Bookcases — Oh My!

The most obvious way to upgrade your hallway is to do a gallery wall–a curated collection of your favorite art pieces and/or photographs. You can display them in a modern grid style with matching frames, or a mishmash of frames and sizes for a more eclectic, thrown-together look. Consider highlighting your gallery wall with directional lighting to showcase your favorite artwork or cherished memory.

Prefer a cleaner look, but still want to add style? Custom millwork, creates an architectural feature out of a blank slate. Bare walls become artwork themselves. Creatively worked ceilings draw the eye up.

FARMHOUSE CHIC

CHECKERBOARD

The floors steal the show in this beautiful traditional San Francisco mansion.

PEAK OF STYLE

Structures Building Company

From the richly stained wood plank floors to the unusually peaked ceiling, this hallway is architectural artwork. The warm floors prevent the white walls from becoming too stark while the headboard and shiplap add textural interest to a mainly monochromatic color scheme. The beam-lined, peaked ceiling is the highlight of the design with a single pendant light accenting this dramatic hallway.

MEDITERRANEAN DREAM

Everything in this hallway is exquisite–archways, stone, flooring, lighting, windows…

Flooring & Lighting

Don’t forget about what’s under your feet. The floor can be a great place to add pops of color and pattern. Wood planks can be shaped into a pattern different from traditional patterns in rooms. Intricately designed runners add warmth and style to the space.

You may be tempted to overlook lighting in the hallway. Most hallways have one, maybe two, standard ceiling lights. Maybe they’re flush mount, or recessed, but chances are they’re not very interesting. Small chandeliers can add drama to the ceiling. Spotlighting artwork adds interest and directs the eye across the walls. Sconces can also sculptural interest to otherwise bare walls. West Elm is great if you’re looking for modern lighting pieces – though try scouring through Pinterest first to get an idea of what you want.

Check out these highlights of hallway ideas. They are sure to inspire.

NOOK WITH BOOKS

This cozy alcove is a perfect place to curl up with a good book; it just happens to do double duty as a hallway. The extra lighting above the alcove and light neutral walls keep this dark hallway bright.

CONTEMPO CORRIDOR

Extending the shelves from the family room to the hallway visually extends the space, making it feel even longer and grander. The shelves also add dimension to an otherwise flat space.

FAMILY GALLERY 2

The tiled ceiling and herringbone floors add enough interest to the space that the white walls do not feel plain, while the console table provides an extra space for light and greenery.

HALL OF MIRRORS

Why hang art on the wall, when you can turn the wall into the art itself? The stacked stone “columns” create texture while the dim, directional light adds drama.

BASEMENT REMODEL
