What wallpaper to buy for the corridor in Khrushchev?
Finding the right decoration for corridors and hallways is not always an easy task. For the so-called Khrushchev, this issue is complicated primarily by the lack of space. The small entrance hall, however, should be not only functional, but also beautiful, and stylish, and cozy. After all, the first thing that sees a person who came to visit is the corridor behind the entrance door. And from what impression this space makes, an opinion will be formed about the rest of the apartment, and about the owner himself. In addition to well-chosen furniture and mirrors, it is very important to guess with the selected wallpaper for the hallway. In the case of the corridor in Khrushchev can offer several options for interior design.

The combination of contrasting colors
In addition to the very modest dimensions of the corridor in Khrushchev, it is worth remembering that street mud gets into the house on the shoes. So, the wallpaper is always at risk: be spoiled. Therefore, a good option would be the design of the hallway in two contrasting colors. The lower part of the wall can be pasted over with dark wallpaper, and the upper one with the same color, but in a much lighter tone. A smooth transition from one tone to another is beautifully designed with a special edging for wallpaper or a baguette for walls.
Tip: To keep the guests' attention away from the dark bottom of the wall, hang a few sconces that scatter the light upwards. Attach them along the wallpaper line. Thanks to this technique, the upper part of a small room will acquire additional volume, and the possible drawbacks of the lower one will be invisible.
Light wallpaper with a small contrasting pattern will visually enlarge the hallway, and make small spots of dirt from shoes or splashes from wet clothes virtually invisible.
How to use the wallpaper to make the corridor wider?
If you want to visually expand the space, choose a pattern from small horizontal strokes or dashes. Accordingly, the vertical lines will help to “lift” the ceiling.
There is another trick that designers use to expand space. In the long and narrow corridor, the far short wall is covered with wallpaper with a darker background than the longer wall. In this case, the pattern of coatings is chosen the same. If there is a wall free of furniture in your hallway, then you can use the following method to increase the space. Pick up a story wallpaper with the image of a sailboat stretching into the distance on the waves, or a river, lost among the hills. For such a wall is ideal to provide spot lighting, further emphasizing the volume pattern.

Economical, but quite acceptable for a small hall Khrushchev can be the choice of wallpaper for painting. First, they can be repainted several times as they are polluted, or simply by renewing the space. And secondly, this option of covering for the walls makes it possible to apply imagination and paint the wallpaper with your own hands. Shops offer a huge selection of different stencils, using which anyone can create a unique composition on the wall, even without being an artist or designer.
Tip: on bright wallpaper in the hallway, you can make the picture invisible fluorescent colors. When the light is on, the image will be hidden, and when there is no light, the picture will appear and enliven the dark space of the hallway. In such a corridor it will be possible to move without even turning on the light.
For a room such as a corridor or a hallway, any wallpaper will not work. It is better to choose vinyl wallpaper or fiberglass products. They are durable, wear-resistant and easy to clean from minor impurities.

Can I make a wallpaper on the ceiling in Khrushchev?
For decoration of the ceiling in the hallway, you can also choose wallpaper. White or light coating options are ideal. If a LED tube is laid under the ceiling plinth along the entire perimeter of the room, then the ceiling will visually become much higher and the volume of the entire corridor will increase.

In addition, the interior of the corridor in Khrushchev can be varied wallpaper with the image of a bright blue sky - clean or with light white clouds. In a close room without natural light, such a device would create a feeling of spaciousness and add extra volume.
