What is their purpose, aside from being a way to reach a room from the stairs? It turns out there are at least seven clever upstairs hallway landing ideas that you could implement in your new home.

Upstairs hallways can be a great place to create more storage. It can be a place to neatly hide away knick-knacks, toys, linens, and whatever else you need. It could also have a small sitting area where you can manage those supplies.

2. Art Gallery

If you have no space to make room out of your upstairs hallway landing, you still have a great space to create an art gallery. Hallways and stairwells are two of the best places to display your artwork and photos. An art gallery will add significant interest to these spaces.

3. Mirror Gallery

Mirrors also make for an interesting gallery. One could use one floor-length hallway mirror or multiple mirrors to add light and a sense of spaciousness to this confined area. Of course, one wall mirror can also work wonders for your hallway’s interior design.
