Bringing a Hallway to Life
Decorative elements can liven up any space. Add an architectural feature such as a bookcase, and you'll really have something to brag about.
This hallway lacked interest, style, and storage. It's also a high-traffic space linking the living area and bedrooms of a small condominium.
The homeowner discovered unused potential in her hall. A hole had been cut into the wall and concealed with an unsightly piece of plywood; it was removed easily. A new return air vent was added. In the unused space, a recessed bookcase was built to give the hallway some architectural substance.
