As a homeowner we are always trying to save space, utilize our areas, save money but does that mean we should sacrifice building a corridor? The question you should ask yourself is, what is the purpose of a corridor?

Corridors are the narrow transitional spaces within the home that connects the different areas and offers privacy and acts as a sound barrier.



Now that we have that out of the way, we will discus the various ways you can make your corridor exceptionally beautiful.

1. A beautiful color with varying tones used throughout. For some people one color seems to plain/boring, so the safe way to choose a color is to; select one color, then pick other shades of the same color (lighter or darker).7

Not saying white is not an option, but if you do choose white add a pop of color somewhere be it a rug runner, flooring, doors, these small details will enhance your home.Remarkable-Modern-Lighting-decorating-ideas-for-Handsome-Hall-Transitional-design-ideas-with-Bellacasa-Design-chandeliers-concrete-fireplace-groin-vault-Kevin-Spearman-lighting-neutral-
