We have a very small hallway in our house, and I needed to make it look bigger and to make it more practical. I´m sorry that I don´t have any before photos of the dark little room with grey laminate floor and beige dirty walls. Because the room looks very different now after I painted everything white. I´m very happy with the result!
You might think that it´s very impractical to have a white floor in the hallway, and you're absolutely right! My plan is to have a little rug that we can walk on with our dirty shoes. *smile*
I´ve also made a little bench that is hanging on the wall (almost like a big shelf), and underneath it I have our shoes stored in a sink bucket. I´m thinking of having a smaller shelf over the knobs as well, so I can have some baskets with scarfs etc.
Next to the right wall we have an old cabinet that we hang our jackets, so the hallway is more meant for our guests and to have a welcoming room.
On the opposite wall I have my DIY chalkboard, so I can write some welcoming words as well...
