The corridors or the hallways are the welcoming part in a house which needs sufficient attention. But it is a common trend that people never take care of the decoration and designing of the same since they are most likely to concentrate on the rooms and interior areas. The main reason why corridors can seek attention is because it is an introduction to the entire house. The purpose of the corridors is also to make the entire house interesting by adding beautification features. However, a disastrous tendency of people to use the corridors as storage spaces in which the least used items are kept is common today. Here are some points to keep in mind when corridors are designed and decorated.
The major thing about the decoration of corridor is that the personal judgments about the occupants of the house. How they plan and purport the corridor is very important because of the specifications in needs and requirements of daily life. What one house need is may be unnecessary for other. It is very important to note that no decisions regarding the decoration should hamper the easy movement through corridors. The decorative items should not act as an objection to easy movement which also brings a messy look.
The carpets are rarely used in the corridors because the footwear, raincoats, umbrellas are kept there in general. Still, partial carpeting is seen in common so as to remove the dust in the foot of people who are entering in to the house. It is also to be noted that the maintenance of carpets is also very difficult since it is prone to dust and dirt. The experts suggest using dark colored carpets which can reduce the appeal of dirt if any. Using a shoe rack can also decrease the amount of dirt accumulating in the carpets as well as in the corridors.
