Your hallway is the introduction to your home; the first thing visitors (and you!) will see, you want it to look warm, welcoming and inviting. But rather than letting it become a corridor or a simple passageway, add a stylish chair or an on-trend bench. Not only is this idea handy and practical – you’ll no longer have to sit on the bottom step to put your shoes on, or walk up and down whilst on the phone, it will also allow guests to admire your décor and give the room a purpose. Go for a coordinating chair to prevent the seat from sticking out like a sore thumb!

If you’re low on time and can’t wait for a new floor (we do have carpet remnants available to take away immediately!), simply throwing down a new rug or sourcing new accessories can still transform a hallway. Something as small as finding unusual hooks, quirky shelving or a coat and hat stand can take any room from drab to fab! A statement mirror, vintage chalk board or a gallery wall filled with your favourite pictures can make a world of difference.

Let your floors do the talking – a bold carpet works perfectly in large entrance halls and adds a real feel of luxury. Monochrome will never go out of style and a classic print will also ensure that your flooring looks chic and timeless. Just make sure you opt for a hard-wearing carpet that can withstand the heavy traffic!

Darker hues have really made an impact in the world of interiors and it’s not hard to see why! Classy, timeless and dramatic, whether you go for a dark floor or a dark wall, darker tones create atmosphere and drama. Go for metallic or gold accessories for a perfect finishing touch.

light up

Make a real statement with eye-catching lighting. An easy way to create a focal point without taking up a lot of space, the lighting in your home can change the mood and ambience immediately. We’d recommend bright lighting for a hallway to fully illuminate the space.
