Light colors, mirrors, glass openings… We help you multiply the clarity of your hall with tips that are as practical as they are effective!
CONTRAST IS ALSO ALLOWED
No one would call this hall dark even though it has a gray painted wall. How do you do it? Thanks to the acid-etched glass door that fills it with light without losing privacy since the rest of the walls are light. Use color to contrast for a modern hall look. Another hit? Paint white and opt for smooth doors for the built-in wardrobe that is in parallel and place a mirror on the console, of course.
BET ON LIGHT COLORS
On walls, floor, and ceiling. If the “box” that defines the hall space is white or with very soft colors, space will always look brighter and more spacious, something essential in small hallways. In this sense, you should know that white is the brightest color in the color palette since it reflects up to 80% of light.
MAGIC WITH A WALL OF GLASS PANELS
In addition to ‘shortening’ a wall, you can replace a fixed partition with a wall of glass panels. It is a very decorative element that helps the light from the living room reach the hall. This space is completed with a custom bench and a flown shelf.
BRIGHTENS A DARK FLOOR
If the walls influence the feeling of clarity in a space, so does the floor. If you have a dark floor, an easy, quick, and inexpensive way to mitigate its “comellight” effect is to partially cover it with a light-colored carpet, as has been done here.
CHOOSE A GLASS DOOR
What if instead of a conventional entrance door you opt for a partially or fully glazed one? Without a doubt, you will have more light. If you are concerned about security, the firms specialized in security doors guarantee anti-theft laminated glass with many finishes, from transparent to translucent for greater privacy.
REINFORCE WITH GOOD ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING
It is as important that natural light reaches the hall as it is to plan the artificial one correctly. A good example of this is this hall, in which the interior designer opted for a pit of indirect light that bathes the walls and fills this space with clarity and charm.
DISPENSES WITH WALLS
And it integrates the hall into the rest of the spaces of the house. Not only do you gain useful centimeters, but you let the light flow between the different areas. If you do not want to give up having a hall in use, you can preserve part of the wall, as has been done here, and create the hall corner delimited in that space.
MAKE WAY FOR THE LIGHT
One of the most effective ways to gain light in the hall is to make way for it. Here a hole has been made in the upper part of the wall that separates the hall from the living room to bring the light into the hall.
