In order to make your corridor not only light and spacious, but also practical, try to complement the light shades with a dark background, applications, abstract drawings. In this case, your hallway will become original, functional, practical (in the photo - an example of such a solution).
Do not abuse the dark colors, as they will introduce a dark atmosphere into the corridor, visually reduce its size. In addition to color matching, it is important to properly use in the corridor and additional lighting equipment. Wall sconces can be placed on opposite walls, in addition, on the ceiling it is desirable to build a few spotlights. In this case, liquid wallpaper will look absolutely different, the corridor will be filled with luxury and harmony. An unusual look gives the corridor striped wallpaper. To create them you need a wallpaper mixture of two colors. First, the main tone is applied to the walls using a construction roller, a paint brush.
If you have a narrow and long corridor, you need to select a liquid wallpaper for soft tones. To expand the space, you can use a horizontal strip along the entire length of the wall.
As a classic option, you can consider a combination of panels with liquid wallpaper. The lower part of the corridor is decorated with panels, care of which is not very difficult. The upper part is decorated with liquid wallpaper.
The designers consider application of appliqués as an interesting option. You can choose in the building store ready-made pictures or draw with the help of a computer program your version of the pattern, print it on sticky paper. With the help of such materials, you can get rid of minor drawbacks on the walls. For example, you can place small chips or cracks under the application.
Benefits of using liquid battles in the corridor
Manufacturers offer these finishing materials in a variety of shades. This allows you to profitably use liquid wallpaper when thinking through the interior of the hallway. The solid colors of the walls help to distinguish the elements of furniture chosen for the corridor. For those who like creative solutions, we suggest trying a combination of different shades and additives in the form of sequins, rhinestones, silk. This symbiosis contributes to a visual increase in space in the room, gives the corridor an individuality. If you use liquid wallpaper to decorate the walls in the hallway, you will not need to waste time and material resources on carefully preparing the walls for finishing. It is enough to buy a wallpaper mixture, prepare it in strict accordance with the instructions offered by the manufacturer, and immediately start repair work. The disadvantage of using such finishing materials is that you can see the final result of the work done only after the liquid materials have completely dried out.
The basic principles of decorating the hallway
If you own a small Khrushchev, do not despair. Using the advice of professional designers, you can turn on your own strength a small corridor into the "calling card" of your apartment. For starters, it's important to choose the right wallpaper color, think through their texture, and use additional decorative elements. In a small corridor, the location of a huge number of additional items will be inappropriate. Liquid wallpaper is better to combine with washable dense materials, in addition to a beautiful appearance to get a functional room. Do not forget that the walls in the hallway are often touched with dirty hands. Home pets use just the walls in the corridor in order to hone their claws. Ideal protection options for this room is a thick coat of paint, but in addition to practicality, so want to enjoy the beautiful walls! To successfully cope with this difficult task, take a look at the liquid wallpaper.
These materials will not leave unpleasant joints on the decorated surface, so you can create beautiful and even walls in the hallway without any problems. In addition, you will not face such a problem as the gradual flaking of wallpaper. Throughout the operational period, liquid wallpaper will retain its original aesthetic appearance, will please you and your guests. If a section on the wall is damaged, which is typical of a room like an entrance hall, you do not have to completely remove all the finishing materials. It is enough just to wet the damaged area, remove the damaged wallpaper, and after completely drying the wall, apply a new layer of the liquid mixture. The cost of such a restoration will be significantly lower than the acquisition of new wallpaper and glue. As part of these finishing materials there is cotton, paper, silk, so the finished coating is not electrified. Fine dust particles will not be attracted to the walls of your corridor. A huge variety of colors, different ways of applying liquid wallpaper on the walls, the possibility of combining them with other finishing materials, allows you to get an amazing result.
Among the variety of finishing materials that are currently offered by manufacturers in the construction market, a special place belongs to liquid materials. When choosing them for the design of the hallway, consider the features of their types. Materials based on cellulose are not suitable for a room such as a corridor, because they quickly absorb moisture, dirt. Wallpaper texture with a stone crumb are the most expensive for the price, but they are recognized by professionals the most durable and sustainable. They are ideal for corridors, will help to realize the most daring design ideas. For additional protection, they can be covered with a layer of acrylic lacquer.
