Hallway lighting ideas for your home

Hallway lighting ideas for your home

With Spring now here you’ll find your home being able to benefit from the natural light of the brighter days, but there is one area that isn’t as fortunate – your hallway(s).

Hallways can often end up looking a little dark at this time, especially if they don’t feature any windows.

That is why this latest blog post is here to provide you with some hallway lighting ideas for your home.


Naturally invite guests in to your home

Brighter bulbs and overhead lighting are the perfect way to take on any dark hallway, meaning even those with limited space can look larger and more welcoming.

Options to consider include statement lighting, such as exposed bulbs, or a spotlight style.

Really you have to consider the effect you are trying to create and how it complements the rest of your home.

Think of particular dark spots in the area, whether you have high ceilings and how light will reflect in the space. Also consider the width of your hall – too large a lampshade could constrict the room and look out of place.


What if I don’t have the money to spend on new lighting?

However, if you don’t have the money to spend on new lighting, there are other options available to you.

LED systems, such as strip lighting and push lights can be placed discreetly within your hallway at designated points and can do a great job in providing some decorative low lighting.


Add a little flourish with some accessories

Your new inviting atmosphere can be further complemented with the use of accessories such as a small console table, hanging pictures and house plants – all guaranteed to add a little personality and character.

Think about the decor that is used throughout your home, as well as your colour scheme and allow this to inform your decisions.
