Beauty lurks in every HOME, and bringing it out is an art and a thrill we get to see over and over in the ‘before& after’ stories of HOME makeovers, be they small ones or large ones. In this case the often forgotten, as well as challenging space or perhaps one could even say the ‘unexciting’ space, of the hallway is showcased. Picture #1 shows a ‘lonely’ hallway. Picture #2 shows a warm, inviting, well-done hallway. So often we see hallways that feel forgotten be it for lack of the same attention given to creating atmospheres in the more major rooms of HOME, or, a missing understanding of the impact hallways have on the rooms that open along its way. It’s like the previews to a movie or the reviews written about a book, they atmospherically provoke feelings and affect what you think is coming next. Often we have seen dark hallways or generally unwarm hallways turn buyers away from HOMES even though the majority of the HOME’S other rooms were bright and beautiful.
Key elements of a great hallway embrace light, color, story and warmth. We often help provide direction for the ‘staging’ of HOME, whether for sale or loving makeover, and we would be happy to offer our help for you and your HOME. Give us a call. 626.688.9890
