When decorating a home, people should consider how their hallways fit into the overall look and feel. Hallways are transitional spaces which should create a seamless flow between rooms for it to be successful.
BEAUTIFUL HALLWAY COLOR IDEAS
When you’re painting a hallway, there are various factors to consider. For example, is it narrow or wide? Does the hall have natural light and how does this affect your color decision? Painting can help balance out these elements and create the look you want for your space!
WHAT COLOR TO PAINT A HALLWAY WITH NO WINDOWS
Hallways with no windows or doors should have lighter shades of blue and green to create some brightness. To really make the illusion of light, a two-toned approach can be used: paint darker on bottom (3 ft from floor) and lighter shade at top of wall.
WHAT COLOR TO PAINT A DARK HALLWAY
Hallways that are darker in color should avoid having bright white walls. Instead, a more saturated neutral with low levels of black is best for the base paint color so it will still be inviting and warm even when there isn’t much natural light available to reflect off its surface.
PAINT COLORS FOR SMALL/NARROW HALLWAYS
If you want to make a small space look bigger, consider using brighter colors like light gray or blush tones. The lighter trim color will help open up the hallway and show off its width. Since hallways are often high traffic areas, these bright shades aren’t for everyone; if that’s not your style then stick with white (or even darker hues) as it is easy to clean and won’t stain easily from scuffs or marks on walls.
PAINT COLOR IDEAS FOR ENTRYWAYS
A great example of the importance of hallway colors is with entryways. Your entryway is the first space people step into when they enter your home. It’s important to create a space that feels warm and welcoming. The color you choose plays a big role in creating the feel of the space.
