Hallways in small homes are like patios – one of the first areas seen by the visitors and guests. This needs to look beautiful and stylish to predispose the visitors’ impression favorably. If well designed and well constructed, it can keep your living area clutter free and neat looking and add to living room décor.
Hallway shelves are most useful for storing items – ours and our visitors’ – like outdoor clothing and accessories – like a walking stick, umbrella, hat, cap and overcoat/rainwear etc which we may need on a daily basis. Most of these items are needed only when we go out. There is no need for us to take these into our bedroom area or wardrobes. Most of our homes do not have too big hall way areas – just some space near the entrance which can serve as patio or entryway and which needs to look as good and neat as rest of the living room. Does it look neat and organized? Can the living room décor and hall way décor go together?
Most of the times, we look at the hall way area from inside. Just imagine how it looks to a guest who just steps in. Does it look inviting? Is it easy and comfortable for the visitors to keep their hats, overcoats, walking stick umbrella without much trouble? Are there enough hooks and shelves to keep all these stuff?
Here you can see some images of beautifully done hallways with furniture from Huelsta. You can see contemporary type décor for hallways that create a very beautiful and elegant look. One of the hallway area furniture is a wooden wall unit with a chest of drawers in natural wood finish with a top shelf and some hooks for hanging your coats etc.
You can create a dramatic effect by giving an accent wall color where you are keeping the hallway shelf etc. The grey wall sets off the white hallway floating type shelf to make a style statement. The mirror adds to the effect greatly. Drawers are for storing car keys, garage keys etc so you do not have to search around when you are going out. Most of the storage furniture for hallway are floating type shelves and open type long shelves with rods for coat-hangers and hooks to store handbags, cap, hats, overcoats etc. A pendant light or a pedestal light will complete the look for added attraction.
