If you are considering repainting your hallway, here are three very useful tips to start: create illusions of color. Use color to correct spaces that have an irregular shape, such as a corridor that is long and narrow. Paint the walls that are long in a lighter color and the shorter wall in a dark color to compress the space.

To make a narrow corridor look bigger, paint the ceiling a very dark color, which creates the feeling that the walls are higher. Another way to create the effect of more volume in a hallway is to paint architectural details such as door frames, window frames, moldings and cut out the same shadow as the walls. If you want to add height to a closed space, a crisp white roof will do the trick.

When it comes to painting small spaces the general rule is to use light and neutral colors such as beige, gray or white to make space look bigger. Playing safely with neutral colors also helps illuminate the area and ensure that the corridor is coordinated with the color schemes in the adjoining rooms.

Light pink or pale green give the hall a shabby chic touch, while antique whites and creams give a classic look. More dramatic colors such as red, brown and black, framed by the light color setting, can be used to create a stunning space. Keep in mind that since the walls in the hallway are close together, the color will appear more intense than in other rooms.
