WSVN -- Martin Amado: "OK, guys. I get lots of questions asking for tips on decorating a hallway, so on today's Room for Improvement we are doing just that. Plus, lucky me, we have the added bonus of having to decorate around this eyesore. We'll make it work."

Martin Amado: "Even though we're dealing with a small space, a hallway is a transition area into the rest of the rooms in your home. So, of course you want it to match the rest of the decor."

Martin Amado: "First up, let's come up with a solution to hide this electrical box."

Martin Amado: "OK, so we have two options. The first one is a beautiful floor-length mirror like this one that opens up the space and gives it a very contemporary look."

Martin Amado: "It's a very minimal style, which I love, but by adding a candle sconce on either side, it helps to complete the grouping."

Martin Amado: "Remember, you have to take into account the height of the candle as well, or else the sconce will be too high or too low."

Martin Amado: "This is the perfect example of how the concept, less is more, can also apply to home decor."

Martin Amado: "Hallways also make the perfect setting to display pictures. So let's begin in the center, with one large enough to hide the eyesore, and we'll work our way out."

Martin Amado: "If you notice, the electrical box is not actually in the center of the actual wall. So we have to cheat the frame over to the left to make sure everything is in balance."

Martin Amado: "Perfect. Now, every time you need access to the box behind it, just lift off the frame."

Martin Amado: "The shelves serve two purposes. Not only are they decorative, but you can display your photo frames on it without putting nails in your walls."

Martin Amado: "You can display other knickknacks to enhance the overall family story and also easily rotate the frames."

Martin Amado: "And there you go! We gave you two options to decorate a hallway and even showed you some stylish solutions to hide that nasty electrical box."

Martin Amado: "If you have a decorating dilemma and need my help, just shoot me an e-mail at room@wsvn.com, or you can follow me through social media on Twitter (@makeovermaestro) and Instagram (@martinamadotv). Until next time, I'm Martin Amado for 7News."
