Long, narrow hallways can be difficult to deal with. They might seem too skinny to be functional, but with the right treatment they can be transformed from a neglected space into a healthy hall that sets the tone for the rest of your home.

  • 1) Wallpaper and Lighting: This hallway from the Altstadt Vienna makes a statement with wallpaper, a long runner, and a series of coordinating pendant lamps.
  • 2) Artwork: One way to make the most of a hallway is to convert it into a gallery for artwork and family photos.
  • 3) Shelving: If your hallway is wide enough, you can line it with shelving for book storage.
  • 4) Colorful Details: A wood-paneled hallway from Country Living is accented with blue interior shutters and small Oriental rugs.
  • 5) A Bright Rug: This white hallway is clean and simple, and a striped rug gives it some kick.
