Use crisp colours to brighten dark halls

Transform a dark hallway with bright, light-reflecting colours.

Does your hall feel a bit dark? Transform the space to feel light, airy and welcoming with just a few painting tricks. Bright, light colours like cream, primrose yellow and brilliant white will instantly make the area feel bright and spacious. These colours also help to reflect any natural light that comes in during the day and enhance the artificial light in the evening, too.

An eye-catching focal point at the end of the hallway is a clever way to draw the eye away from the walls and add extra interest. A striking piece of artwork or mirror will give the illusion of a brighter end to the space. If you want to get creative with colour, paint a feature panel or use masking tape to create dramatic stripes.
