All of us know what a narrow hallway looks like, many of us live with one and wish for more space and light. A narrow hall can be long or short, the ceiling might be high or low. By using the right pattern or structure wallpapers, unfavourable layouts can be corrected to a degree, and the dull cave can be turned into an attractive passage area. Who knows - it might even be cosy enough to have a long chat with friends and neighbours... This Guide Blog reveals which pattern and design wallpapers give your hallway the lift it needs and will provide valuable hints and tips as to its general design.
Analyze your hallway:
Grab a pen and a notebook and analyse your corridor the way an interior decorator would. Don't worry, you can do it! The following short check-list with important questions will help you: What is the actual shape of the hallway? Is it a long "hose" shape? Or more like a short and narrow shape? Are the ceilings high or low? Are there any corners in your corridor? Measure the width (from wall to wall) and the ceiling. These measurements will come in handy later on.
Is there direct or indirect daylight, for instance via a window or glass insets in the door?
Does a window along the stairway also let some light into the hallway?
Is the floor light or dark? Could it easily be changed or covered with different flooring (e.g. rugs and carpets)?
At first sight, what do you dislike about the existing design and furnishings in your hall?
Think about the functional aspects of the design, for example: Do you need storage for shoes, scarves and hats etc. and a coat rack, or would you like to keep it simple and just add a few decorative items?
This first analysis will doubtlessly provide you with various great ideas and inspire a certain colour or pattern preferences. Don't forget to write these ideas down in your notebook. That way, you won't forget anything. Even the narrowest of hallways is your private zone which you should design according to your personal wishes. This important space is like the calling card of your home and should represent and reflect your individual taste and personality. When designing the best solutions for a narrow hallway, there is no need to stick to specific norms or traditional concepts. The aim should be to find a pleasing combination of self-expression and some basic characteristics of colour and pattern design for small spaces. You can do it, we just know it. Colour concepts realised with design wallpapers:
A long narrow hallway needs light colours - that much is obvious. This basic principle is certainly not without merits, but it can be used in small doses. This is where the question regarding daylight in the hall or adjacent areas comes into play. If there are windows and light is coming into the hallway directly or indirectly, the pattern in the wallpaper can have slightly darker or more intense colours. After all, the term "light colours" covers a multitude of hues. We are not referring to sterile white, however, as that can look cold and impersonal. Choose creamy or silvery hues of white, ivory, pastel yellow, a delicate rosé, pearl grey, baby blue, beige-brown or light purple - to name but a few of the suitable shades - when selecting the right design structure or pattern wallpaper. There are some exceptions to this rule, but more about that later.
