Finally, walking through your front door after a long day or returning from vacation can and should feel good, notes blogger My Travel Monkey. For most of us, the hallway will be the first thing we see, and as such, you’ll probably want yours to be welcoming. It’s also the first aspect of your home that guests will notice when they come to visit, or potential buyers when you try to sell.
Hallway colors run the gamut, and with first impression stakes so high, it’s important to make the right choice. Depending on the design aesthetic of your home, there are different shades and tones you can use to create the perfect welcoming hallway. For a windowless hallway, you might want to lean towards something bright and cheerful to liven up the area, as Fantastic Services suggests. On the other hand, you may prefer to opt for deeper and richer tones, to create a warm and cozy ambiance. Whatever your desire, we have 20 beautiful colors to discover below.
Simple and natural, white is a blank canvas that you can use to your advantage. Dress it according to your personal choice and trust that white will never go out of fashion.
If white seems too bright and clinical, then an off-white, like cream, may be the perfect choice for a slightly less edgy look that stays fresh and clean.
Sunny bright yellows come in many different tones, and its cheerful look can be paired with many other colors to suit your tastes.
To create a sophisticated look that complements any hallway, use a soft pale blue as a light, yet colorful backdrop for bolder rooms.
This dark color can look fantastic if done right. If your hallway is wide, you can pair navy blue with a light colored floor to balance out the deep blue tone.
Brown might not be an obvious choice, but the understated tone can work well with a natural aesthetic. Use earth tone to pull together looks that use natural fibers and furnishings like wood and jute.
Gray has recently gained popularity and there are different levels of intensity to choose from. Charcoal gray paired with yellow-brown ocher tones can be both modern and inviting.
For a much softer hue, pebble gray is perfect when you want to use gray but feel your hallway is too small or cramped to handle the darkness of charcoal.
It’s not the first, or maybe even the last color you might think of when considering painting your hallway, but if you do it with a strong sense of design, black can be bold, modern and very chic.
Jewel tones are everywhere at the minute, and emerald green is no exception. It can show off your unique style and flair, plus it’s a relaxing color; cool but inviting.
Another bold choice, ruby red evokes warmth and spice. It can spice up a dull hallway and make the entrance to your home feel unexpected.
Terracotta is a shade of orange that can work with an earthy aesthetic, especially when paired with potted plants and natural fibers, like a macrame plant hanger.
Light, fun and cool, purple can be used in so many ways to brighten up a hallway. It’s soft enough to feel inviting, yet colorful enough to show off your bold sense of style.
Bubblegum pink is a fun and confident color. It can brighten up small hallways or add a real boost to a large area that needs a boost.
Teal is a versatile color that works especially well in a hallway as it can be warmed or cooled depending on what other colors you decide to use alongside.
Pale and cool, mint green brightens up any dark space and reflects light well. It’s a cool shade that lets you inject color into your space without it taking over.
Similar to brown, beige is perfect when it comes to a natural, earthy aesthetic. However, it can also be used as a neutral canvas for a clean and elegant appeal.
Dusky pink may seem girly and childish at first, but if you choose a tone with a gray undertone, it can become incredibly modern and chic.
Not for the faint-hearted, lime green screams individuality. Embrace your unique sense of style or inject fun and style into your home with this bright, confident color.
Another jewel tone, deep purple can play well with many other colors like gray, white or, if you’re feeling daring, even yellow. Being opposite purple on the color wheel, yellow complements purple well if done tastefully.
