Put a personal touch on the entry area, experiment with light
Focus your attention on personalising the space – mount a collection on the walls – plates, hats, and musical instruments, whatever you have. It is a great idea to hang a beautifully – framed family photo gallery; you could even transform a plain hallway with a salon-style art display; keep into consideration that grouping elements in odd-numbered groups creates an eye-pleasing display and varying their heights adds interest. Your collection – especially when well – lit with accent lighting/spotlights or ceiling track lights are a great idea/, will really stand out to show immediately your tastes.
The entry zone is a place where family members and guests offload coats, bags, and umbrellas so provide enough hooks/if necessary add a second lower level for kids/, shoe racks, and an umbrella stand; if you have space, try to include a chair or a bench to serve as a comfortable area to put shoes on and off; it is a good idea to add in some sort of storage for hats, scarves, and other accessories – a chest of drawers or even a series of baskets will do the trick.
Emphasise the staircase, make a feature out of it – whatever it is – traditional, spiral, space – saving for narrow hallways, it adds style and elegance to the décor; if you incorporate a glass staircase, this is a fantastic solution for maximising natural light and creating an airy, spacious feel; you can even illuminate your stairs or go for a mirrored mosaic staircase thus adding glamour and luxury to the space.
Let’s repeat – a mirror is obligatory in the hallway, it can really make a world of difference; it is useful for a number of reasons – when strategically – placed, it reflects light and makes the area open and spacious, not to mention that it is great for the last-minute primping; and the bigger, the better – a full length mirror is great if it fits the space. Furthermore, in terms of aesthetics, a beautifully – framed mirror adds sophistication and luxury to the décor.
More decorating tips about mirrors and light: place a stunning pair of sconces on each side of a decorative mirror to both add more light and enhance the décor or place an accent lamp on a console table or a shelf and hang a mirror above to visually expand the space.
Small details to complete the décor are a must for a hallway, do not forget them; a vase of flowers will bring a touch of freshness.
