Hallways are not the easiest spaces to make homely or stylish. They’re often narrow, with long stretches of uninterrupted wall, so colour is super important. Go bold with your colour choice and it’s an instant game changer. Now colour is personal of course, but obviously I’m going to try and continue on my crusade to convert you to the dark side. So here are 5 reasons to pick up a paintbrush and go dark in the hallway. Don’t be surprised if the dark hues spread to the rest of your pad too though. It gets a little addictive, just to warn!

1. DON’T FIGHT THE LACK OF LIGHT

There’s a lot of mumbo jumbo out there about colours. The thing is, if you have a small dark room (which most of our hallways tend to be without a lot of natural light), if you paint it white you will just end up with a small dark and depressing room. I don’t know about you but dull and dingy is the total opposite of what I want to come home to. White walls just makes the lack of light even more obvious. Instead embrace it, go with dark, strong colours and you’ll immediately have oodles of intrigue, drama and glamour.
