The corridor is often the go-between for the interior and the entrance, which means it’s probably the first room in the home that your guests will see as they enter. It is therefore vital to consider aesthetics, practicality and functionality before decorating this space. 

Vibrant colours, chic textures and plenty of light are easy ways to make your home cosy and comfortable at any time of the day. The interior designers at homify have compiled this feature of 8 handy hints that will help you transform your dull and dreary corridor into an attractive work of art!

1. Vibrant shade

A vivacious shade of violet or periwinkle is sure to catch the attention of your guests while enhancing that classic vintage décor element in your home. Opt for some antique furniture to complete the look.

2. Useful storage

A home can never have enough storage, which is why a library is a great idea to decorate your corridor, stylish shelves will maintain a tidy appearance regardless of the state your living space is in. Don't forget to finish the design with a long, elegant rug.

3. Natural light

The simple yet cosy and inviting colour scheme of this corridor and the conservatory enhances that nature loving atmosphere, with plenty of flora for charm.

4. Like an art gallery
