Your entrance hall is a very important space in the house as first impressions count! When starting to design a scheme you need to think about creating a space that fits with your home, while being both welcoming and stylish.
It’s important to create a flow between spaces, so ensure you choose a colour that complements the colours used in rooms coming off the hallway. It can work well to choose a complementary colour that’s darker than the colours used in outlying rooms as this will make them seem lighter and more airy. Try painting the space in deep reds or dark greys and blues to create a dramatic entrance.
Here is some hallway inspiration:
1. A Dramatic Blue Hallway
Painting the walls blue and the floors white can make the room feel wider. Painting the wall at the far end of a long hallway, brings the wall forwards, making it less corridor-like.
2. Creating Flow through your home
Choosing colours that all have the same tonal weight will help the flow of direction in your home
3. Light Walls and Darker Woodwork
To create light and space use the lightest colour on the largest surface area and a darker tone on woodwork
4. Bold Yellow Hallway
By using a brighter colour above the dado rail it makes the room feel brighter
5. Bright Red Hallway
Painting the hallway in all one colour will create the illusion of more space and using a colour like this will also generate a great first impression!
