The Best Paint Colours For Small Hallways

If you have a small hallway that you're struggling with, then let me tell you that you are by no means alone. And, better than that, there's hope! By choosing the perfect paint for your small hall, you can create a stylish, welcoming first impression: here are the top ten Modern Country paint colours for small hallways....

This soft grey green has, according to Farrow and Ball, an unparallelled softness.

For a white hall, Down Pipe shows off period detailing, such as high skirting boards, and substantial door frames...

Dulux Chalky Downs
Remember this house tour top-to-toe in Chalky Downs? Dulux paints are really worth a look for some of their graduated colour schemes (Dusted Moss is another favourite) as a perfect starting palette for a whole house (for the rest of the incredible house tour, click here).

Little Greene French Grey 
This version of the classic French Grey is a colour that looks delicious in different lighting conditions. Small hallways that twist and turn need paint colour that are thoroughly adaptable, and Little Greene's French Grey looks great by starker daylight, as well as in warm artificial light.

Farrow and Ball Railings
This Victorian hall has been given the wow-factor with woodwork and front door in Farrow and Ball Railings, a soft inky-black.

Farrow and Ball Brinjal
For a strong colour below dado rails, like this deep aubergine, make sure you cut right back on the strength of colour above; Here Farrow and Ball Cornforth White is used to great calming effect.

The slight blue undertones of this classic grey Farrow and Ball paint give an elegant feel to a period hallway.

Fired Earth Carbon Blue
For a period feel, keep the stronger colour below the chair rail. Alternatively, for a more contemporary take, reverse the two, perhaps adding tongue and groove beneath.

See? Is that a smile I see as you drift off into decorating-land? Imagining a whole new hallway for you and your home, that you never even dreamed was possible?

Enjoy every second!

some beautiful paint colors. If I ever get brave enough, I would paint my entry with one of the dark ones.
