Sometimes, decorating the small hallways can be a challenge. They often are a blank expanse of wall space that needs a touch of decor to make the area appealing. It can be difficult to find something that coordinates with the decor in the surrounding rooms and fits in the small area, but using the correct materials can make the area attractive and functional. However there are a few ideas to decorating ideas for the small hallways to get you started for the creativity to flow. For instance, if you have a wood-floored hallway, consider adding a floor runner rug to draw the eye down the length of the space. Runners make the space feel longer and fluid, and offer an opportunity to bring out colors and shapes from your other decor. They also protect hardwood floors. This is especially welcome in households with pets and small children.
