Typical furnishing mistakes in the hallway design

The furnishing of hallways is difficult because space is often limited and the space as such is completely neglected. Hallways degenerate into better storage rooms and unorganized storage spaces that are provisionally filled with bulky pieces of furniture.

Corridors are extremely important to convey the important first impression of an apartment. Hallways determine whether guests and residents feel comfortable in the apartment.

Another problem with hallways is the lack of direct sunlight. Appropriate lighting is therefore a very important element in creating a good ambience in the hallway.

The 7 most serious interior design mistakes in hallways:

  • Underestimating the importance of corridors and devaluing them as connecting rooms
  • Bulky poorly placed furniture
  • Unstructured white walls
  • generous storage space
  • use the hallway as a storage room
  • too few shelves, too few light sources and poor lighting

How to design a narrow hallway?

When designing narrow hallways, you should first pay attention to the color scheme. There is often no direct daylight in corridors. A well thought-out color scheme can make things easier here.

In any case, choose a light wall color to make the hallway appear larger. However, white color is not recommended, rather a light gray or pastel shades that look friendly and inviting.

The second important point concerns the illumination. The lack of daylight in the entrance area can be compensated for by a clever lighting system. This includes a ceiling light, but also table and wall lights that can be placed in different places in the hallway. Individual ceiling spotlights can also be a useful addition.

A hallway without furniture and decoration does not look very inviting. With the right selection of cupboards, wardrobes, chests of drawers and wall brackets, you can set the right accents and give the hallway a pleasant ambience. And you give the hallway the status it deserves as an important part of every apartment.
