15 Hallway Décor Ideas That Will Make You Want to Redecorate

3. An Antique Pedestal Table

For a hallway with more of a traditional elegance, look for a curved or engraved table that still features a wall-hugging design, such as the pedestal table pictured above.

5. A Sleek Console Table

Define your hallway with a sleek console table, which won’t get in the way of heavy foot-traffic, yet will still allow you to display your favorite photos and décor.

6. Colorful Wall Art

While a hallway gallery gives you a chance to incorporate all of your favorite paintings and photographs – and all sides of your personality – nothing balances the color temperature of a hallway space quite like a single large wall art piece.

Place a breezy open-shelf table to expand your hallway space – and a pair of elongating candlesticks to heighten it.

If you need extra storage but don’t have the floor space, look to the walls. Hang hats, coats, purses and other accessories against a bold shade of paint for chic organization.

The distressed finish of a solid wood credenza (like the one pictured above) doesn’t just provide a rustic elegance – a streamlined design featuring spacious pull-out drawers makes for effortless organization.

15. Table Pairs

In interior design, layering isn’t just for rugs or throw blankets. Pair a tall accent table with its shorter counterpart in the corner of a hallway for a touch of unexpected flair.
