The elements that you decide to incorporate into an old homes design and décor will depend on the actual era of the homes design. Today, "old house" can mean anything from the classic 1970s split-level ranch home, to old estates built in the 1800s. Never think that you are limited in your decorating choices because of the age of the house. There are many décor choices that work well with each old home, and one is sure to be a perfect match for your personal style and taste.
To turn a poorly designed hallway into a practical and livable space thought must first be given to storage. Partitioning an area of the hallway for storing coats and jackets is a necessity by either constructing a small closet or using an armoire. For cramped or small spaces, a full-length mirror can be hung to increase the visual appeal of the room and its perceived size. Additionally, a small desk or chest can be used to store car keys, umbrellas, scarves and hats.
Lighting. Lighting will be an important part of the design of your older home, especially if you are decorating a very old house. Lighting fixtures in really old houses were few and far between, as are electrical outlets. If the home you are about to decorate does not already have upgraded lighting, you may want to put this at the top of your list of things to do. The ambience and atmosphere of your home is in many ways determined by the types of lighting you choose and how that lighting illuminates the rooms.
Designing a powerful and impressive front entrance and hallway sets the tone for the remainder of the house. The hallway needs to not only be both functional to greet guests and store belongings but also aesthetically pleasing. Traditionally, a hallway is a small and narrow space that requires a discerning eye to design both functionally and pleasing. Luckily, a boring and impractical hallway can be redesigned with simple and inexpensive home improvement projects.
