The corridors can be, sometimes, complicated space to decorate. Too long, too narrow, too wide or too dark. It never “rains to everyone’s taste” and the truth is that no corridor usually likes us. But luckily there are always solutions that can make these spaces much happier and integrated into the overall decoration of the house. In this post we will teach you how to decorate corridors, or at least we will give you some ideas that can be of inspiration.
Although it is not hard to believe, there are many things we can do to decorate corridors. Solutions such as the elimination of doors, colors, carpets or the inclusion of some furniture to increase storage space are some of the alternatives. Then we talk a little more about it.
Eliminate the doors to unify spaces
Yes, the doors in the corridors are good as long as they separate the same from a room like the bathroom or a bedroom. However, there are other spaces in which these doors are not essential. For example, in the living room or dining room. Also, if these rooms are bright, when you remove the doors, you will make the light flood your hall, making it much more welcoming. The spaces will be communicated and the feeling of openness will be greater.
The color to decorate
The corridors can also be painted, of course. However, be careful. A too narrow aisle will not look good with excessively dark colors. As much as possible, we should forget about the black and also those colors that are uptight.
On the other hand, painting or painted paper They can help us to hide a corridor that is too narrow. Forget the vertical stripes, which only increase that narrow and claustrophobic feeling. In this case, better bet on the horizontal stripes, which visually separate the floor of the ceiling. Maybe you could make a division and paint the lower part of a color and the upper part left blank or in a lighter color.
How to decorate corridors: the importance of light
The best way to give light to a dark corridor, without the possibility of being opened to another room, is to paint it white. White automatically illuminates the rooms. But in addition, it is also advisable to use natural materials that provide a little warmth. An excellent combination would be the wooden floors (natural or synthetic) and the wall in white. If you prefer, play with white undertones, like broken white. In a previous article we talked about some alternatives to white in a post with Tips for choosing colors to paint the house.
