The entrance hall is the very first room your guests enter. And already by its appearance you can make the first impression of the house. Very often, in typical apartments, the entrance hall is designed based on free space, not convenience. Therefore, people often become the owners of elongated narrow rooms. But the right patterned wallpaper can help create beauty and coziness even in this small room.
Light walls for the smallest spaces
Unfortunately, if your hallway is very small, you will have to give preference to light colors. Plain wallpaper in pastel colors will expand the space, filling it with air and light. You can choose a light, unobtrusive pattern.
An imitation of brickwork or other textured material may look interesting. But try to stick to light colors.
You can decide on modern minimalism, leaving the walls white or light gray. You can make one of the walls active by pasting it with bright or dark wallpaper.
Vertical strips for low ceilings
Since there are usually no windows in the hallway, a low ceiling here can create a feeling of pressure and heaviness. You can visually increase the height of the room with vertical stripes.
You can combine stripes with another ornament if the vertical accent is especially relevant in certain areas.
Graphic ornament for more volume
For small rooms, the pattern should not be very large. A win-win option would be monochrome gamut.
Graphics will be a great solution for a room where you need to place a lot of furniture. The walls will visually expand, creating additional space in a slightly congested environment.
You can also use very bright colors, leaving a light base.
Small drawing to expand the space
The safest option is a light background and a very delicate pattern. A classic floral theme is fine as long as the pattern doesn't fill the entire wallpaper space.
A popular classic style trick is a white fill pattern on a light colored background.
Wallpapers in rich colors
If you really liked the dark-colored wallpaper, make the floor, door and accessories light. Use the same techniques as with light wallpaper - small drawing, solid color space.
Don't skimp on fixtures. Once you decide on dark walls, choose large and powerful chandeliers.
Wall decor in a small room
Photomurals in light colors are quite suitable for the hallway. But it is better to decorate with them not the largest of the walls.
Wallpaper of bright colors can be used as wall decoration (imitation of paintings or tapestries), leaving the main background light.
Use mosaic pasting on the walls. To do this, you can cut several colored wallpaper into wide enough strips, and alternate them with each other. With fairly active colors, the decor will stretch out in height, just like the stripes.
You can use colored wallpaper and where there is daylight access, for example, if the entrance to the room leads directly from the street.
It is good if it is possible to illuminate the room with a window from some adjoining room.
Don't give up on bright colors if your hallway has at least a small window.
