What color for a corridor? Home decor Ideas
You are thinking of a makeover in your hallway, but you are not sure how to organize this space which is the business card of your apartment or your home. And you ask yourself: what color for a corridor ? Colors help us to structure the space and to highlight concrete areas. That’s why the answer to this question is very important. We would like to customize this space, to present ourselves well in front of our hosts and “announce the color”. The ranges and shades are almost endless – between neutral and elegant, pastels, flashy, bright colors, it is not clear what shade to choose. With what color can you revamp your corridor, to create a dynamic and welcoming space? Do not forget: the first impression is based on colors and details. Follow the guide!
The effects and patterns that we love at the moment:
- brick walls – be they red, brown, white, you’ll be in with it. You can opt for only one brick wall, or two. For a corridor in rustic or industrial style, you can have all the brick walls. You can also find them in trompe l’oeil wallpaper, which is the best variant for decorating your hall, especially if you have decided to make a wall only half with brick patterns.
- The bands of dapper colors that break the monotony of a monochrome color: for example a strip of red, green or orange on a white wall.
- The two-colored corridor – the painted walls, for example, half in duck blue and half in white.
- The brilliant white – we insert in this decor touches of black and gray, or powdery pink, for glamorous atmospheres. Or yellow, to make the decor more dynamic.

What color for a long narrow corridor?
- If you like black and classic styles, rest assured: you can choose black even for this specific space, provided you swing it with light colors. A black and white wallpaper with black and white baroque patterns will be a good choice.
- Experiment with wallpapers made of fabric or with 3D effects, they will add more space visually.
- Install a panel with mirrors on one of the walls, this trick will make your corridor brighter, thanks to the light reflections of the fixtures, and make the hallway visually more spacious.
- Finally, if your hallway is really narrow, go for total white and minimalist furniture. In this case you can install original ceiling lights, or other fixtures that create interesting effects. Here it is precisely the lights that will make the difference. Given the large selection of luminous bodies in the stores, you can be sure that the decor of your hallway will be impressive, even if your hallway is narrow. The cool idea: luminaires that diffuse several beams of light, and, even more cool if they are colored. In addition to these effects, accentuate parts of your long corridor with touches of color, such as black, red, yellow, or any other shade you like. A colorful picture or picture can work wonders! Or a large vase in turquoise color, for example, placed in one of the corners of your corridor.

How to choose the right color?
- Watch out for the light! A shade that seems bright and bright in the store, can turn dark and sad, once placed on your walls. Normal – the light in the shops and in your entrance are very different. Take this fact into consideration when evaluating the variants for the walls of your hallway.
- The porosity of the plaster changes the tone of the color, so do a little test on your wall, to see what effect it will do in your particular case.
- Opaque color does not necessarily mean dull color. Water-based paints such as acrylics, vinyls and alkyds (water-based paints of last generation), give amazing results in the dark tones – black, blue, purple … We obtain a delightful velvety effect. And you can sublimate it, by installing paintings, design sconces or brightly colored panels, to make the whole thing vibrate.
- You can achieve sophisticated effects by opting for one of the many shades of white for your hallway. And match it with a ceramic floor with gray or green shades – depending on the shade chosen for the walls. For a chic entry, cover the floor with graphic cement tiles (hyper trend currently), or with retro patterns in black and white, chessboard style.
