Whatever the size of your house, you can always decorate a small and narrow hall. We will show you 20 modern galleries with functional furniture. It may be that your home is so small that the idea of having a hall seems more like an illusion than a reality, or that you live in a studio and, as soon as you open the front door, you come face to face with the living room. But trust us, all these are just excuses, because whatever the size of your home, there is always a way to decorate the hall. Do you not believe it? Well, take a look at these 20 ideas.
It does not count if you have a large hall or do not even have a space because even if the entrance door leads directly to the corridor, you can always set up a small gallery. The key? Paint it white and not overload it with dark furniture. In this way, it will seem more spacious and bright!
The entrance to your house speaks a lot about you and your personality, it welcomes your friends and invites them to come in, so it is necessary to treat it with care and spend time styling it.
It would be best if you endured in mind that it is essential to keep the hall tidy, it is the first impression of your house when guests arrive, but it is also the first and last image you will have of your home, and keeping it uncluttered will do a lot for your well-being and state of mind. Cheer up. In this link, we collect five ideas to maintain the visual order of your hall.
It is also necessary to consider how you should illuminate the hall. Although it is a space in the house where you do not carry out any activity, it is instead a transit area, and you will need good lighting to verify that you have everything you need when you leave. Hallways are usually small, dark rooms. It is essential to take care of them because it is the first image that our guests have of the house. Combine ceiling lamps with wall sconces to avoid shadows, and colored lampshades, to give light and warmth to the room.
We suggest you give a twist —or whatever it takes— to the decoration of your hall. Forget the traditional formula, imagine it empty and white walls and think of it as a cheerful space with personality and character. Indeed, some colors that you would like to see there or a specific type of furniture comes to mind. These proposals to decorate the entrance can become those muses that artists know so well to help you give that arty look that your hall needs.

2- MINIMALIST WHITE HALLWAY
How clever! A shelf that also acts as a coat rack thanks to the hooks that hang from it, and a charming white stool next to the shoe rack. If space allows, add a small rug… And you’re done! You already have your dream hall.
Another master example of how to take advantage of a corner. In this case, the bench was made with wooden pallets, and the rest of the elements are made up of coat racks that look like knobs and an impressive tree that grows out of a metal cube.
The narrow and elongated furniture will make the ceiling of your hall seem higher and, therefore, more spacious. Of course, do not forget always to give it a deco touch responsible for brightening up the area. Shall we tell you a secret? Plants never fail.
5- AIRES GREEN
Let your passion for plants be noticed from the entrance of the house! A wooden shoe cabinet will give you the storage space you need to make the most of the square meters of the hall; And so that the area does not turn out to be bland at all, decorate it with various pots, vases, and decorative plates. Another tip is to add a mirror to the wall. In this way, you will trick the eye, and it will seem that the space is more prominent.
6- TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CORNERS
Often (almost always), we overlook the power of the corners. And it is that if your hall is small, there is no better way to give it life than choosing furniture that adapts to the structure (and not the other way around).
Look at everything you can get:
- A bench where you can sit down to take off your shoes comfortably.
- Storage space.
- Coat racks.
- An umbrella stand.
- Even a corner to add deco details.
7- HALLWAY WITH MIRROR
One of the most creative ideas to adapt the hall furniture to each season is to team up with paint and accessories. Here, for example, the turquoise blue is reminiscent of the color of the sea, and the natural fibers of the basket and hat refresh the environment.
8- SMALL SPACES
The hall is limited to a partition next to the door in this house. How was this little corner used? With a white floating piece of furniture decorated with plants, a long mirror on the wall, a mini coat rack, and a knitted pouf on the floor that provides a lot of warmth.
9- SMALL NARROW HALL
Above is a shelf with storage spaces—above three racks to hang bags and backpacks. And to top it off, a full-color box that helps to highlight the area. See how simple?
If you’ve always wanted to live in the Little House on the Prairie, now’s the time to fulfill your dream because you don’t need a giant foyer to achieve that irresistible country style! Get a wooden bench, and place several coat racks at different heights on the wall. All you need to do is hang your favorite wicker and raffia bags and hats.
If you have a small corner and want to make the most of every inch of the wall, create a collage of photos or illustrations in a vertical position, and leave the lower area to place a sideboard or an auxiliary piece of furniture where you can store your personal belongings. You can also utilize it solely as a decorative element, using baskets and plants. The decision is yours alone.
12- WITH CHARM
To gain charm in the hall, all you have to do is choose the right pieces. A coat rack with golden hooks, a nice wooden bench, some baskets with a cute print, a plant with a vase that makes it stand out… 😉
Do you like the ”village house” effect? Please point out the tricks to achieve it: aged wood, white tones, laminated walls, wicker, jute, raffia…
If you are looking for a different hall and, above all, very fresh, dare to play with the colors of the wall. The powdery tones combined with white are ideal for gaining sweetness and freshness, and they look great with materials such as wood or natural fibers.
Family is essential, so you usually want to have it present when you enter the house. The upper shelf was decorated with black and white photos in this hall, and parents and children used the coat rack simultaneously. There will be no more beautiful area!
You have always said that you were born in the wrong era and would feel like a fish in water in the fifties or sixties. Well, this is the time to bring out your retro-soul by decorating the hall with second-hand furniture and iconic pieces, such as an old telephone.
We have reviewed all the deco styles, but we have not yet gone through the classic. Opt for a wooden sideboard and add heavy decorative objects, such as a photo frame, a table or wall clock, or a mirror, if you want to recreate it.
White, cream, beige, nude tones… All of them will conceive a very feminine and chic corner in the hall, but the key is to add golden details, a touch of natural fibers that relax the environment, and some flowers that shine on their own. Alone.
In this hall, the bookcase made up of golden blocks is, without a doubt, the main protagonist. A perfect way to generate an environment with character, taking advantage of the height of the walls. The good? That you can quickly achieve the same finish at home: all you need is a coat of gold paint.
As if you were Alice in Wonderland, an umbrella stands in the shape of a milk jug. Will it remind you of a fairy tale house?
