But, unfortunately, in our apartments, the corridors, the bulk of narrow, long and uncomfortable. Besides, they have no sources of natural light.

The tone of furnish of a ceiling should be lighter than the walls. Floor tile lay diagonally, and linoleum choose from diagonal or cross pattern. Use the interior mirror, you can also use glass. Hang a few lights, which light will be directed sideways or upwards. As a rule, from the hallway doors lead to other rooms. If possible replace the door wide doorways or decorative arches (living room, kitchen).
The furniture should be functional and fit the décor of the corridor. Do not use deep cabinets with open shelves or wardrobes. For a very small corridor fit a simple hanger. As for shoes, there are ideal cabinets for shoes. A great option for a narrow corridor is a Cabinet-slim. It is quite roomy and compact. Its width does not exceed 30 cm Provide space for storage of keys, umbrellas, bags, hats. With a wide range of modern furniture is not difficult. Do not clutter the hall with unnecessary furniture, just everything you need.
