How To Style Your Hallway

Hallways are the perfect place to experiment in your home and have a little fun. They’re the first part of the house your guests will see, providing a ‘sneak peek’ of what to expect throughout the rest of your home. So why not make an impact and show off your design skills as soon as your guests walk through the door? Here are a few ideas which will transform your hallway from ‘bland’ to ‘beautiful’…

Wall dressing

Go bold and try out a statement wall treatment such as wallpaper, a painted mural or panelled walls. Hallways provide a small space where you can make a big impact, so why not try something new and dramatic that you may not be brave enough to try elsewhere? Hallways provide the perfect opportunity to be a bit more adventurous than you would in your more relaxing spaces.


Adding a statement mirror not only looks beautiful, but helps to brighten up the area by bouncing light around the space. Due to the narrowness of most hallways, they can feel a little dingy and claustrophobic, so it is important to keep it as airy and bright as possible. Try something bold and beautiful like our Safavieh Antiope Sunburst Mirror for maximum ‘wow factor’.

Sleek furniture

Try adding narrow furniture to your hallway for practicality as well as beauty. Console tables are always the perfect pieces as they don’t take up too much floor space, but they add that little touch of style that’s needed. Our Safavieh Hayden Console is perfect for hallways as it is both sleek and elegant.


Finally, say a big “Welcome!” to your guests by adding a large statement plant, or a vase of flowers to the entrance of your home. This will help to freshen up the space and create an inviting atmosphere which will leave your visitors wanting more. (If you’re not too green-fingered, you can always opt for faux plants for maximum impact without the worry!)

We hope that we’ve given you a few pointers when it comes to your hallway, and shown you just how easy it can be to transform an often forgotten space into the star of the show! Be careful though. Your guests won’t want to leave…
