Your hallway decor ideas should most certainly not play second fiddle to the interior design of the other rooms in your home — in fact, this is a space that deserves your full attention when it comes to getting its style and finishing touches spot on.

The hallway is the space that welcomes you home after a long day, as well as being the room into which you receive visitors. It is also a space that sets the tone for what lies beyond the front door — so your hallway ideas need to be well considered.
