What type of fabric covers the walls in these spaces?
Since we upholster so many interiors in Austin or other places in the US, we can say there are no rules. Every home is unique. Many type of fabrics are possible in hallways, corridors and entrances. And like a powder room, those spaces are the most visited by your guests. Having the correct and elegant wall finish is something to think about. Browse through the slider for fabric wall covering ideas in such areas.

Halls and Open spaces

Indeed, these open areas are an introduction room and they should not be neglected. After all, entrances are the first room to the house. A welcoming space who set the style to the interior of a home. A home has a main entrance and sometimes several hallways. We name them as corridor, passage, arcade. They lead to the next room such as a formal dining room, a master bedroom. For this reason, we should take good care of these walls and not negate them. And consider fabric covers walls.

In general, corridors, galleries or hallways have little natural light or none at all. Their shapes or designs are in some cases amazing even stunning. Some don’t allow for much furniture. Therefore, choose a fabric to suit the architect.

Wall Covering installed by professionals

When going through the sliders, you will see a solid red wool cloth by Holland and Sherry. This excellent company makes beautiful woven textiles. Most of wall coverings are simply stretched but other types of installation are possible. A corridor may have fabric wall panels with nice wood moldings as a frame.
Another option would be only from a rail to the ceiling or just one or two walls.
It is true, a fabric that stretches from baseboard to crown molding will look so different than wallpaper.
If wood paneling is present, then the cloth begins at the wainscoting and stops at the crown molding. The height of these spaces may vary greatly. In some cases, the ceiling is included in the process and upholstered with the same fabric. Entrances, hallways, or passages may have the same type of treatment. Textured fabric is the key to success.
