Make your hallway brighter with these 4 tips
The hallway might feel like a remote room – In many homes the hallway is a rather dark and uninspiring space. However, there are some easy steps to light up the hallway and in that way create a more inviting first impression of the home. Following are Essem Design’s four foremost tips for lighting up the dark and gloomy hallway.
With a lack of windows and natural lighting, it’s often a challenge to bright up the hallway. For many, the hallway remains dark regardless of the season. Nonetheless, there are some easy interior tricks to help you – Essem Design presents their foremost tips to light up the hallway.
Open hallway interior
Open interior solutions will help to light up the hallway. Replacing the ponderous closed closet with a hook strip or a hat rack will easier let in the available natural light into the room. Additionally, it’s important to declutter the things that aren’t essential to the functionality of the hallway.

Look over your choice of color and materials
We all know that a room with lighter walls, ceiling and floor feels more spacious and lighter. However, this also applies to color and material choices in the interior. Glossy interior details help to reflect light which will make you perceive the room as brighter. Aluminium hooks or a hat rack in brass are great examples of pieces that will brighten up your hallway.

Mirrors reflect and light up your hallway
Mirrors aren’t solely making a small space feel bigger than it is – it’s also a great way to light up the hallway. Mirrors have the effect of giving rooms depth as well as creating light which makes a room feel spacious and brighter. By placing a big mirror in the hallway you’ll get a brighter and more practical room.

Gather your interior pieces
Gathering the different interior details in the hallway is an important aspect to allow light to get into the hallway. A great approach is vertical storing – by utilising the room’s height, instead of cluttering the whole hallway, more light can get into the room. As a result, more empty spaces are created which makes the hallway not only seem bigger but also brighter.
