Adding character to your hallway with a hall tree

  Elegant White Hall Tree   

Most people focus on the living room, kitchen and bedroom décor and hall furniture is usually not a priority. However, the hall is an important area because visitors and even people standing at the door are usually able to look down the hall. This means that it is  important to furnish the hall well and always include it in your decorating plan. A great piece of furniture that should adorn every hall is a Hall Tree which is basically a fixture that allows you to hang items like coats, hats and other garments. It can also be used to store small items such as keys, sunglasses, wallets and even cash.

Many people have a landline phone placed on the hall tree which is a strategic position for easy access by all. Some hall trees have mirrors which actually adds functionality. The mirror comes in handy when you want to check your appearance just before heading out.

A hall tree is also a great place to place a few decorative items such as small sculptures, figurines or even framed pictures. You could also enhance the hall tree and make it a focal point by adding some lights.

Many furniture outlets have a range of hall tree designs to choose from and you can choose the one that suits your preference.
