Grand Hallways

This entry was posted on 12th January 2011

Hallways and entrance halls can often end up as wasted, messy spaces which do nothing and say nothing about the character of the owners or the home in question. The starting line for turning your hall way from a wasted, drab space to a fabulous grand entrance is of course the colour palette. Making the right choices when it comes to the colour palette of your hallway will characterise your hallway or entrance space and in turn make that drab space fab! If your hall way is narrow and dark then there are two separate techniques you can adopt here. You can either go for the trade of thought of; 'the brighter the better' and aim to make the space appear fresh, bright and light or you can go for dark colours of which will elongate your hallway. If you want to brighten up your space then go for fresh, light colours such as whites and creams. Add to this look a large mirror and a lightly coloured blind of which will let the sun shine through it in the morning such as our Viveza Pearl roller blind. Alternatively if you want to add a splash of colour then why not go for one of our lighter shades of Vertical Blinds that will allow you to achieve the perfect balance of light and privacy. If on the other hand, you have a narrow space then why not go for dramatic section of wall in a dark red or purple with contrasting bright white larger sections. Using these two contrasting shades together can elongate your hallway giving the appearance of a passionate and welcoming space. If you accessorise these dark colours correctly then these shades will work brilliantly in elongating as well as adding drama to your hall way, Controliss Liso Jet Black roller blinds or Liso Red Devil are perfect accomplices for a striking window finish here. Mirrors are also the key  and will go hand in hand with the darker  coloured walls as they make a space appear wider. If you don’t want to commit to a bold paint job and palette in your hallway, however, then why not opt for coloured lighting instead? This will dramatically enhance architectural features as well as allowing you to be experimental and change the colour of your hallway regularly with different coloured lampshades and bulbs. Creating a desirable entrance hall using carefully selected paint hues and window blind shades can really turn one of the most neglected ares of the home into a grand hallway !
