Your hallway is the introduction to your home; the first thing visitors (and you!) see on entering. You want a warm, inviting feel. But rather than letting it become a corridor or a simple passageway, add a stylish chair or trendy bench. Not only do you have a place to sit when putting your shoes on, it’ll also allow add a sense of purpose to the room. A co-ordinating chair is best to bring the whole space together.

For a quick fix that won’t break the bank, the simple addition of a new rug or a few accessories can transform a hallway. Something as small as 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. For another quick transformation, we have carpet remnants available to take away immediately!

Make a statement

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 ensure that your flooring looks chic and timeless. Just make sure you opt for a hard-wearing carpet that can withstand the heavy traffic!

Go dark

Darker hues are really having a moment in the interiors’ world, and it’s not hard to see why! Classy, timeless and dramatic, whether you go for a dark floor or a dark wall, darker shades 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.
