How To Decorate A Hallway with Wall Art?

Elevate Your Entryway: Infusing Life into Your Home with Elegant Hallway Wall Art

When it comes to interior decoration, the hallway is often overlooked, yet it is the first space that guests view upon entry. Imagine walking into a home and being immediately greeted by an artful display, a vibrant splash of creativity that adds warmth and character to the otherwise plain walls. Yes, we're talking about hallway wall art.

Hallway wall art can breathe life into your space, transforming a simple passage into a gallery that reflects your style and personality. With myriad styles and designs available, there is a piece to resonate with everyone's artistic preference.

Selection Process

The selection process should be fun and reflective of your story. You don't need to be an expert; instead, listen to what speaks to you, or which photo resonates. After all, you and the people you share your home with will be experiencing the art every day.

Coastal wall art is an excellent way to infuse life and a sense of serenity and tranquillity into the space. When it comes to decorating a hallway, choosing the right wall art can make a significant impact on the space. 

Think about the message you want your hallway to convey. Do you want it to be an energetic, lively space with bold, vibrant colours? Or would you prefer a tranquil, calming atmosphere with pastel hues and serene landscapes? The selection of wall art can help set the tone for the rest of your house.

Colour Scheme and Style

When choosing wall art for your hallway, keep in mind the colour scheme and style of the rest of your home. At Through Our Lens, our images are available in formats of stretched canvas prints or framed wall art prints.

The choice will depend on your style, your home's overall aesthetic, and, of course, your budget. Opt for pieces that complement the existing decor, or choose artwork that adds a pop of colour or texture to liven up the space.

At another way you can approach your choice of wall art is to go for neutral tones if your hallway walls are bold and colourful. On the other hand, bright, vibrant artwork can bring life to a hallway with neutral or white walls.

Coastal themes often incorporate soothing colours like blues, greens, whites, and sandy neutrals, representing through both abstract that reflect the calming essence of the ocean and beach, whether through abstract representations or realistic seascapes. The chosen colour scheme and style should harmonise with the existing decor of the space.

If your hallway lacks natural light, consider incorporating additional mirrors or reflective surfaces to create the illusion of a brighter and more spacious area.

Size and Viewing Distance

The size of your hallway and its wall space plays a pivotal role in your wall art decisions.

In a narrow hallway, you might opt for vertically aligned art pieces rather than large-scale wall art that may overpower the area and make it feel congested. It's important to select wall art sizes that are proportionate to the available wall space. Medium-sized or smaller works are typically preferable for these areas, providing a balanced aesthetic that can be appreciated without overwhelming the viewer.

Given the closer proximity of viewers to the wall art in narrower hallways, hanging these pieces at eye level promotes comfortable viewing while navigating the corridor. This principle also applies when designing a gallery wall with smaller works. Group these pieces together in an interesting arrangement, alternating spacing and orientation for added visual interest.

Alternatively, a series of smaller prints, hung either vertically or horizontally, can lend a sense of flow to the corridor. This technique allows each piece to stand out individually while collectively adding artistic allure to the space.

Another option is to hang a series of smaller prints in a vertical or horizontal line, creating a sense of flow along the corridor. This arrangement allows for easy appreciation of each individual wall art while adding a touch of artistic charm to the space.

Conversely, if you have a wide hallway with a high ceiling, a large piece or a collection of medium to large pieces arranged gallery-style can create an impressive statement. With this configuration and depending on your preferred orientation of the chosen wall art, two or three larger works might serve as focal points, and hang at eye level for optimal viewing.

Don’t be afraid to experiment!

Your hallway is a great opportunity to express your personal style and creativity, so don't be afraid to experiment with different colours, textures, and arrangements until you find the perfect look for your space.

Whether it is a seascape or a surf scene, coastal wall art can transform a corridor into a relaxing and inviting space. It is essential to choose prints that resonate with personal taste and style.

Decorating a corridor or hallway with coastal wall art allows you to bring the serene beauty of the beach into your home. By carefully selecting a suitable colour scheme and style, considering the size and viewing distance, exploring arrangement options, and incorporating appropriate lighting, you can transform your corridor or hallway into a captivating space that reflects your love for coastal aesthetics.

The versatility of our collection of coastal wall art ensures that there is a perfect piece to complement any interior, creating a harmonious and inviting atmosphere throughout your home.
