You spend more time in your hallway than you might think. Most busy families walk up and down the halls all day long. Considering how much time you spend walking through it, decorating the walls with something nice can make it more appealing. Different ideas range from artwork to family photographs. The hallways in most homes are narrow and dark. This can be solved by adding decorative mirrors. Mirrors can help make a space appear bigger and brighter.
