The hallway is the gateway to the rest of the house. Yet all too often we neglect it and don’t give it the care and attention afforded to the other rooms in our homes. Even the smallest hallway can have a big impact if it is designed well. After all, this is the first room that any visitors will see when they enter the house. Here’s how to do it.

Get the colour right

This is the first step to creating the perfect hallway. Hallways spaces should be bright and airy to create the sensation of space. Go too dark and it can seem a little intimidating. Neutral colours on the walls can be accented with pictures and other colourful features.

Add character

If you are working with a small space then you need to add some character to your hall to make a big impression. With a vintage piece of furniture like a chest or hat stand, you can really make your hallway stand out from the crowd. Shop around at flea markets and boot sales for the ideal vintage piece and you can find some incredible bargains.

Get the front door right

A huge part of the appeal of any hallway is the front door. Both the front and back of the door impact upon the nature of the hallway. When the door is open it becomes a part of the room so make sure it is in good condition and well looked after. This is especially true if you’re lucky enough to have a timber Georgian front door. These can be a real design feature and act as a strong design motif around which you can style the rest of the hallway. Think black and white tiled floors and elegant mirrors.

Work with the design era of your house in the hallway and you can create a perfectly fitting entrance way to your period home.
