As an interior designer, I get asked specific questions a lot. Moreover, one of them is, at the end of a hall or hallway, there should be what? When there is a wall instead of a door at the end, there must be a focal point incorporated. As an interior designer, I love responding to small challenges such as a dead-end hall or hallway. To blend this space in with the rest of the home, a focal point that will make a powerful statement as well as create the right amount of wow factor will need to be put in place.

The following can easily be incorporated:

  • A unique & stylish accent chair

  • Bold abstract art or a selection of grouped art (always include unique lighting to enhance the artwork)

  • Pedestal(s) with a beautiful vase or urn, which can display a flower arrangement

  • A large mirror or grouped mirrors in different colors, shapes ,and sizes

Also, if there is a window at the end of a hall or hallway, display a console table and add a plant which will get ample sunlight. However, the primary goal of placing decorative objects or a piece of furniture at the end of a hall or hallway is to distract from the overall length. When getting creative, the possibilities can be endless. Check out some design solutions below and let this design dilemma become a thing of the past.

Safety Tip: Always make sure ample lighting is throughout any hall or hallway.

My favorite photos are 3 and 8. A waterfall paired with fire is a powerful statement, and using the exterior view to create a dramatic focal point is a definite wow factor.
