Decorate your welcoming hallway
A first impression always counts, which is why you should pay extra attention to the way you decorate your hallway. A hallway should be practical and offer quick solutions for storage when walking through the door, this doesn’t mean it can’t also look stunning.
You want smart storage ideas for keeping your shoes and a place to store your essentials – keys, wallet, umbrellas. If you have a walk-in closet, then your hallway doesn’t have to accommodate too many things. But when you don’t, the decisions you make in terms of hallway design are important.
That’s why we offer plenty of hallway storage options. What truly makes a difference is that we also believe your hallway should look amazing. So we have some stunning furniture pieces for your hallway in store in every style. Plus, we came up with great tips for styling your hallway in the coolest way possible.
Maximise your space with great hallway storage ideas
The first thing to consider when designing your hallway is functionality. Since most of the time, the space is quite limited, you need smart hallway storage solutions. Take advantage of the whole room by adding some basic furniture items.
A coat rack is spacious enough to store seasonal jackets if you don’t want them out in the open. When it comes to shoes, you have several hallway storage options. Our vidaXL shoe racks and cabinets come with and without doors, and in a variety of sizes. For a big family, we recommend those with over 20 compartments. Smaller apartments can make use of a classic cabinet with tilting compartments.
Do you want to combine utility with comfort? Look for some vidaXL hallway benches. They are available in many shapes and colours. Some have a seat cushion; other hallway benches follow the farmhouse style with lovely wicker baskets for storing shoes.
Open the door to a stunning sense of style
Let’s talk style. Your hallway can be super stylish and practical at the same time. To create such a design in your home, look into hallway tables. At vidaXL, you’ll find superb console tables or end tables, perfect for your hallway. Play with an interesting combination of materials – wood, metal, glass – to create a great design. Hallway tables are perfect for art display, adding some flowers, and obviously, to place your keys.
The best way to make your hallway look trendy is to use floating shelves. Use them as a nice way to decorate the walls. This is where you can get creative – add books, photos, and everything else you’d like to see on display.
A vidaXL wall storage shelf with hooks is another way to beautify your hallway in a useful manner. Hang an umbrella, a hat, or jackets and add memorabilia on top, for a lovely visual effect. Go for a wooden ladder as a nice hack for storing scarves. This way you add a touch of colour and patterns to your hallway, while keeping your scarves within reach.
5 tips for styling your hallway
- Create a gallery wall. Choose frames in different styles and colours to display your favourite art pieces or family photos.
- Open up the space and make it stand out with a statement mirror. Or go for multiple smaller mirrors, you decide!
- Use pendant lights if you have high ceilings. Opt for clean lines in their design for a modern home or go for a chandelier for a bit of glam.
- Make your hallway look cosier with a rug in lighter colours, while also protecting the floors.
- Go bold and create a unique aesthetic with an accent wall. Choose a strong colour and make it pop with accessories in soft tones.
