Decorations of corridors in the house

Before examining the intricacies of hallway design, it is worth clearly understanding the difference between a hallway and a hallway. The difference is that the hallway is the area near the front door, and the hallway is the room that connects the rest of the house and has an elongated rectangular shape. That's it. And now let's find out how to decorate the hallway so that it blends favorably and harmoniously into the interior.

Texture and color scheme

The palette for the corridor is selected under the tone of the other rooms. Thus, all rooms acquire similarity and one thematic direction. But still, the corridor should be more restrained against the background of the rest of the house. In its design, it is desirable not to use bright colors and excessive saturation of colors. It is better to give preference to related neutral colors, such as: light gray and graphite, sand and olive green, brown and beige, cream and gold.

Ideally, all the doors in the hallway should be the same, and the other details (furniture, frames, baseboards, baguettes) should repeat their colors and pattern. Duplication of textures helps to make the interior holistic and thoughtful.

Picking up the interior

Usually, when the design style of the house is already known, the design of the corridor is not difficult. Most often the same materials are used as for the living room and kitchen.

Modern style

Modern interior is characterized by brevity and severity of all elements of the room. Straight lines and solid colors prevail here, there is not a single extra object — everything should be in its place and used as intended.

Classical style

It's symmetry and colors of jewels and mahogany. Classical style walls are decorated with various paintings and mirrors in luxurious frames. A magnificent royal chandelier glitters on the ceiling, giving the corridor the atmosphere of castle rooms.

Loft style

Loft can be recreated through sloppy decoration: bare walls, beams on ceilings, open lamps or mini spotlights, metal wall trim. All this looks like the urban setting of an abandoned factory, but at the same time makes the interior trendy and original.

Style provence

Provence is characterized by the atmosphere of spring and the sun. Pastel shades, vintage furniture, plant prints and lace frames, which is very reminiscent of a nice French rustic house. It is a light and cozy design that promotes relaxation and rest.

Scandinavian Style

This style is a combination of clean winter colors and natural materials. This design is dominated by white and gray colors, natural light wood and ethnic patterns (for example, rhombuses decorating carpets).


The corridor in the house is a place where dirt and street moisture often collects. This fact should always be taken into account when choosing a finishing material, which should be water-resistant and durable.


The ideal coating for the corridor is porcelain stoneware. A wide range of textures and patterns will allow you to choose the right material for almost any interior. You can also pay attention to tile, linoleum or poured floors.


If your hallway is combined with the corridor, the wall material is better to choose moisture-resistant, because not all materials react well to water from jackets, boots and umbrellas. The best approach is vinyl wallpaper, plastic panels or tile under the brick. Closer to the rooms, you can use any upholstery (photo wallpaper, decorative plaster, etc.). If animals or small children live in the house, it is better to look for materials that are more or less resistant to scratches and markers.


For finishing the ceiling will do and ordinary plaster, and stretch film, and plasterboard, and plastic panels. Good lighting should be arranged throughout the corridor, and in the center place a couple of bright light sources.
