Much like the awkward corner, the slim space between two doorways (or windows!) is often overlooked, forgotten, or left blank, just because. But boring begone! Whether your empty, narrow space is in your hallway, living room, kitchen, or even your bedroom, it’s time to fill it. We have 27 ideas that will provide plenty of inspiration.
Look for a low, narrow bookshelf for storage and simply add framed prints above. It’s like styling any other console, except skinnier!
One of our favorite ideas is adding a bookshelf! It presents an opportunity for more storage and so many shelves to style!
Don’t be afraid to cram a two or more frames horizontally. Throw symmetry out the window, too, while you’re at it.
Most people are afraid to add objects to this space that take up space in the actual hallway, like a large leaning mirror. But you shouldn’t be! Look at how simple and elegant this ornate mirror looks in this modern, minimalistic space.
There’s no harm in adding a tiny, short side table to the mix with a few frames hanging above.
A magazine rack is the perfect wall accessory for the glossy obsessed.
Make the most of the space and create agallery wall
that spans from floor to ceiling.
Keep it simple and create a clean line of prints. Hang the topmost frame even with your door frame for a minimalist vibe.
Don’t shy away from making a statement. Finding a piece of artwork that fills the entire width of your tiny wall is a fun way to fill the space.
The proportions and textures in this space are so rustic and welcoming. Adding a vintage chair (for sitting, a catchall in your entryway, or simply for decoration) and a frame with thick matting feels fresh.
Bring some color into your space with cute little planters! Mounting any plants on your wall, really, will do the trick.
We kind of have a thing for decorating long narrow hallways… If yours is broken up with doorways, fill your narrow walls with lots of art. This also presents the opportunity to curate mini gallery walls with slightly different vibes.
No wall accessory is too small. If you don’t want to make too large of a statement, look for a funkier light switch cover. It will have the same effect as this tiny black accessory you see here.
Go sleek and simple with one large piece of artwork. Definitely don’t feel like you need to fill up the space completely if you have a wide wall space to work with.
There are so many unique shelving units available for purchase that would gladly fill your tiny space. Narrow floating shelves are also and underrated option.
The spacing and proportions of this space were expertly planned. Always consider what you’re going to stack before you hang!
The owners of this home could have hung light and airy black and white photos on their walls, but instead they went dark. Never shy away from creating contrast!
This is obviously a larger space between two doorways, but nonetheless, a lesson in filling spaces you might be inclined to leave empty. Imagine this wall without the console, sconces, artwork, and mirrors.
