In the receivers It is where we welcome our guests and the first thing we see when we enter the house. It is an area sometimes forgotten but with a lot of potential, and color is one of the most important elements. So let’s see ideas and examples of black and white hallways for inspiration and decorate yours like a magazine.
Color is important in hallways because in terms of furniture they are somewhat limited, they are usually small or narrow and there is not much room for maneuver. But with colors we can get great visual effects.
How to decorate a black and white hall
If you have followed the guide to decorate a house in black and white, you will have seen that black subtracts light and makes spaces appear smaller, so you have to try to make white the protagonist to achieve just the opposite.
Something curious happens in the hall, and that is that this rule can be broken.
Dark colors may predominate
It may seem that it does not make sense because they are usually small spaces and almost always without windows. But it is a passing area where we do not live, it does not need to be white, even a white hall in low light can be depressing.
However a dark hallway with low light is elegant intimate and sophisticated. You just have to light well the important areas, such as the mirror, where you leave the keys, where you hang your clothes, the shoe rack.
White on the walls and black on the furniture
This contradicts the previous section because you can choose the style that you like the most.
If you prefer a white hall you can add black in the furniture and accessories. In this case it is better not to place too many things so as not to cram it, the minimalist style or the Nordic style is more beautiful.
Add different textures
Textures add warmth, are cozy and break up patterns a bit cold that can have a black and white hall.
put a carpet on the floor, a plant, a wooden piece of furniture. The idea is to get a little out of the strong contrast of black and white with different textures.
A dash of color to bring life
The combination of black and white is always great, it is to play it safe because they are complementary when they marry perfectly. But these two colors can be a bit bland, they can sin of lack of life.
If you add some wood-colored furniture you get it more cozy, if you add a green plant you get it more natural, and if you add a complement of a bright color you get a well balanced hall with a touch of vibrancy super pretty.
Now that we have seen the tricks or keys to decorate hallways in black and white, let’s see examples and real photos of different styles so you can be inspired and design your own.
