Hallway Makeover

We go nuts over hallway paint projects. It’s the part of your home that connects all the other rooms together. 

For Mother’s Day this year we decided to spoil one of the mum’s in our Paint Club by giving away a brand new hallway makeover free of charge. We hired a colour consultant to choose colours that worked well with the existing colours in the home and a professional painter to do all the painting work. Shout out to Shane from Shellco Property Services.

To keep with the modern theme of this particular project, we kept the main wall a colour that was consistent with the bedroom, living area and other rooms of the home. The colour used here was Dulux Glinks Gully.

We decided to complement the main walls with a feature wall at the end of the hallway to really set it off. The colour we used here was Dulux Winter Sea. One of the great things about feature walls is that you can use them to change the visual aspect of a room without significantly changing other colour schemes around the house.

Another thing we decided to do here was use a lighter shade on the skirting, architraves and doorways. The colour we used here was Dulux Vivid White. Lighter colours have the visual effect of adding depth to a light colour without darkening the room. We also kept the ceiling a light colour to give the perception that they were higher and brighter than they actually were.

PRO TIP: When painting the ceiling in the hallway, always go with the light to avoid unwanted roller marks.

This particular hallway project had floorboards, was well lit, long and wide and had an extra high ceiling.  The natural timber flooring enhances the natural warmth of colours in the room.

The end result is a new, fresh looking hallway with a feature wall that makes it pop.

Starting a paint project doesn’t start with dipping the brush into a fresh can of paint, for me the journey began well before that at the colour selection stage. Choosing colours is hard. House exteriors have so many variables to paint, the trim, the broadwall (that’s the main part of the house for those that don’t speak paint) and features, the list goes on. All I knew is I was stuck with our new Colorbond fence colour in Woodland Grey and I wanted a grey tone that would complement the fence and work in well with a white accent.

If you’ve found this article because you were cruising through the internet, legitimately looking for paint project ideas for your teen’s bedroom, I’d like to congratulate you on surviving the first twelve years of parenthood.
