Most often, homeowners are recently repaired, but this approach is erroneous. The hallway is visible from all the rooms of the apartment, and the neighbors are not discharge can see it from the staircase, for example.
The most common way to use panels – location at the bottom of the wall. Do not forget about the overall ceiling height. For example, the height of the wall is 3 m, then more than 120 cm walls are not worth occupy, otherwise when dividing the wall visually in half – your ceiling will seem below. It would be more profitable for the proportion of approximately 1 to 3, in this case the walls will optically increase.

Of course, such a reception of the classics is considered to be carbonate for contemplation, especially small and low rooms, but for classic design stylistics – the most.

Do not forget to select the appropriate design, specify the size, consider the placement without unnecessary joints and seams so that the appearance is accurate and laconic, and only then go to the store and proceed to the installation.
Once upon a result, it remains only to add a well-known saying “Seven times death, once again” – Having thought that the internal decoration of the hallway to the little things you will never be upset the result. Good luck in repair!
