As the hallway is often the room where first impressions are made, it’s important that this space isn’t overlooked in your decorating plans.
Many narrow hallways can lack natural light, so adding shades of yellow paint can really help brighten the space by adding not only colour and warmth, but by reflecting light. By choosing lighter shades you can transform the space and in turn, the atmosphere of the rest of the home.
There are many yellow paint colours to choose from but try to steer clear of hues that are too warm or too dark, as they will certainly make the area look smaller. You will also want to ensure you keep the space uncluttered as a clear space can also help make the narrow room seem wider.
Opting to paint both the ceiling and the walls of your yellow hallway the same light shade will give the space a cohesive look and help to elongate walls even more. And if it’s a cream hallway you’re working with, make sure you choose a warm undertone instead of a cool one as this will help replicate the natural light in other areas of the house as well.
