We decorate our bedrooms, dining and living rooms with a myriad of artworks, furnishing items, colors, and textiles, but we usually neglect one of the most important spaces in our house — the hallway. The hallway welcomes you home. It’s an inviting and greeting spot for friends, family, and guests. It plays a big role in our home interior and overall composition, so we should treat it as such! NuProp encourages you to give some love to your entryway and create a warm welcome for your home using these inspiring ideas.
Your hallway often serves as the waiting area and in order to brighten up the waiting time fascinate your guests with a collection of expressive art on the walls. Nothing makes a bolder statement than a striking artwork that reflects your personality and taste. An extra tip from NuProp: you can skip the step of spending a lot on fancy art pieces when you can just get creative with the patterned wallpaper and use it as an eye-catching artwork for your wall.
Let’s not forget about the practical aspect of the entryway. Decor your space beautifully and make the most out of it as well. For example, place a full-length mirror into your hallway in combination with umbrella stand. By doing so, you will always be reminded to bring along an umbrella during Malaysia’s raining season. As for the mirror, not only it helps you to check your look before you leave but also brings more light and ample feel to space as hallways are usually quite narrow and lack of natural light.
If you are lucky enough to have an expansive space for your hallway, organize it by adding furnishing items, benches, storage boxes, and hook racks for the maximum functionality. Let the entryway blend with the rest of the home decor seamlessly but also have a pinch of originality. Try to play with different textiles and patterns in the same color scheme to avoid overwhelming the space.
Let It Shine
For more luxurious and elegant touch, hang a chandelier in your hallway to create a bright and inviting corridor. The entryway will be taken to a whole other level by just including a sophisticated light fixture. Chandelier will add some chic to space while providing a sense of welcoming since its warm light is a focal point in the hallway.
To give your entryway the maximum visual interest, fuse bright and vivid colors of furniture with rugs of different patterns and textures. You can showcase your statement decor accessories in combination with the most interesting and bold art pieces you have. An eclectic composition of the hallway accentuated by its playful touches makes space truly captivating.
Less Is More
For the lovers of minimalism, the neatly organized hallway is an ideal option. Use a clothing rack instead of hooks or closets to save space and give a modern look to your entryway. Function and aesthetics are the main elements that make minimalist’s hallway gorgeous in an effortless manner.
Add Fresh Greenery
When your hallway is limited in space, the ultimate way to initiate a warm welcome and not clutter is to locate some plants into your room. Pair the plants of various heights and shapes together for a great alternative to an absence of decor and furniture. Also, by placing plants into the colorful pots, you can induce a little more flavor into the room.
