While viewed by many as a mere corridor or crossing space, the hallway is probably the space in a home or office which is the most used, as it creates the connection with the rest of the space. To improve the aesthetic and use of these areas, PORCELANOSA has multiple materials that can help you to increase the brightness and style of each hallway to really make the most of the space. Let's take a look at some of them.
Neutral colours to enlarge your hallway
One of the most effective ways to offer a sense of space to a narrow corridor is to paint the walls with neutral shades such as white, beige, grey or sand. This chromatic scale includes Fitwall® by Krion decorative panels or Berna Topo porcelain from PORCELANOSA, whose textures and designs have been created to reproduce the colours and textures of natural stone.
As they are cut to size and have greater resistance than other materials, Fitwall® surfaces stand out due to their versatility and sustainable composition (mineral, resin and recycled PET) and, as a result, they improve the overall environment and increase the volume of the walls.
This optical effect which lengthens the hallway and connects it to the rest of the rooms can also be achieved through the use of parquet or wood-inspired vinyl flooring such as L'Antic Colonial's Linkfloor Legend. This light and easy-to-install vinyl allows you to differentiate areas, and can be brought to the fore with wall paintings or wall-to-ceiling mirrors which will increase the sensation of an endless space.
Corridors with walls inspired by stone
Many hallways lack light and aesthetic coherence. For increased sophistication and depth, PORCELANOSA suggests a porcelain coating for the walls that simulates marble or limestone. This is the effect that is provided by collections such as Nylo Noir or Ars Beige from XTONE. While the large pieces in the first series featured black marble, the second series focusses on an ivory-tone design that gives greater depth and brightness to your hallways.
In central, longer hallways, complement this type of wall with compact or suspended furniture, which will help to organise your objects and clothing to make the most of the space.
To provide more interior lighting, installing adjustable LED lights or ceiling lamps can increase luminosity and ensure that the space appears as wide as possible. The Skins painted wallpaper by L'Antic Colonial, including the organic designs Artenisa or Calatea, adds more breadth and dynamism to your hallways.
