Narrow Hallways are Like Skinny Jeans

Adele Shotton-Pugh | Posted
If you have a long narrow hallway you need to think about how you're going to make it look good – think along the lines of skinny jeans and you'll soon have a hallway that looks fantastic. To wear skinny jeans successfully you don't have to have pencil thin legs, but it helps, your narrow hall has the advantage of not having any wider parts like your hips to content with.   Wide corridor with dark wood flooring, white walls and tall slit windows leading into the rest of the house

Use carefully chosen accessories to draw the eye away from the restricted space; think of it as wearing a wide belt to make your hips look smaller or a wide bangle to draw attention to your arms rather than your backside!     Sage green hall with white side table and beige carpet on the stairs

If you're carrying excess baggage i.e. a spare tyre or bulging thighs, keep it neatly store away to prevent the muffin-top look. In hallways neat storage solutions can make the difference between stylish and overcrowded.

Use stripes to make your hallway look wider and/or higher in the same way as you can when wearing jeans. Choose the width of the stripes carefully so that they balance with the size of your hallway.     White, black and grey striped wallpaper with round mirrors on the wall and a black set of drawers

You may not be able to walk round with mirrors attached to your skinny jeans, but you should look in the mirror and ask yourself the all important question 'does my bum look big in this?' if you have to ask the chances are it does! However, you can use mirrors to give more light and a sense of a larger space in hallways.   Cream front hallway with tiled floors and many mirrors on the wall

Use a focal point at the end of your hallway to draw the eye in the same way as you'd wear a top to draw the eye upwards to make your legs look longer and leaner.     Alice in Wonderland themed corridor with White Rabbit and I'm late quote

Always remember that you have to sit down irrespective of how tight your skinny jeans; in your hallway give your eye the all important focal point of a welcoming chair and you'll make huge strides in your interior design style.
