2) How to furnish the corridor – A colonial touch

Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice Do you need a space in which to work but don’t have a free room? Try to take advantage of the corridor! If it is large enough you could place a small desk and a chair on it, thus creating a small office. Turn it into an even more comfortable place with the addition of a beautiful table lamp. Furnishing the corridor will thus become a true exercise in ingenuity.
5) Entrance furniture – Create an illusion of depth
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice Your entrance is short and narrow but do you want it to appear long and wide? Just hang a mirror and play with the optical illusion that can spread a greater sense of spatial depth. Even the light is able to change the perception of the dimensions of a room.
6) Reduce the corridor
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice Furnishing the corridor is often a question of necessity. Is your entrance area very wide and you would like to make it appear narrower to avoid a little lived aesthetic drift? From a single large room you can get two different ones using curtains and filling the space with furniture: a sideboard surrounded by two stools can be the ideal solution. The easiest? Playing with carpets with important patterns, but not in obvious contrast to each other, to avoid the feeling of “noise” in the chosen style.
7) Illuminate the corridor – Entrance lights and light colors
Furnishing-the-corridor, Corridor, Furniture, Colors, Advice If you think that your passage is too dark, light it by painting the walls white and adding different points of light. If you have the opportunity, install a glass wall with sliding doors, a solution that guarantees a greater supply of natural light to the room. Furnishing the corridor in the most strategic way can change your living space with the lightness of a light beam.
