Great Hallway Arrangement Tips
Space restrictions often limit the placement of furniture in a hallway. The hallway arrangement could require more effort and time than the arrangement of bedroom, kitchen, living room any other rooms of your home because they are places of transition and connection between rooms and therefore must fit into the overall style of the arrangement of the whole house. The hallway arrangement must also be functional, offering a visually impact or at least to have something special because it is the first contact that someone has with your home. Here some tips for you. Arrange your hallway to accommodate the constant flow of traffic. Be mindful of sharp turns near bathroom and bedroom doors that require clearance to avoid bumps in the night. A hallway with furniture or accessories on the floor should also provide adequate lighting. Opt for wall-hugging pieces, such as a demi-lune console with curved edges. Avoid large items that obstruct easy flow. Instead, choose small-scale items, such as a hall bench with compact seating and built-in storage for seasonal outerwear.
Make your hallway appear visually wider by placing a chest or console table at the end of a hallway that is within a few inches of the overall width of the wall. Include an eye-catching piece of art on a stretched canvas or a narrow picture frame above the chest to maximize how wide the hallway feels. Place one or two carpet runners on a hard-surfaced floor to add interest and warmth to extended hallways. Encourage a spacious feeling in a hallway with a diagonal pattern or a herringbone design for wood and ceramic floors. Arrange or group works of art at eye level for an average-height person to maximize visual appeal.
