Hallways are the most well trodden path in any home, so regardless of whether you have a small hallway or a large vestibule that doubles as a separate room in it’s own right, it is worthwhile taking your time to consider your flooring options. It makes sense to go for something hardwearing, that is easy to clean and maintain and will stand the test of time no matter how many times you change the decor, so if you are looking for inspiration check out our pick of the 10 best hallway flooring ideas.
You’ve decided on flooring options for the main rooms of your home, but have you customized your hallways yet? Whether you choose vinyl flooring or a show- stopping tile, be sure this area is complete with the perfect flooring option. Read below to learn more:
First of all consider the age and style of your property. Traditional materials such as wood and tiles are ideal choices for a period home, while polished concrete or painted floors are better suited to more contemporary properties. Flagstones and old bricks look lovely in quaint country cottages, but for a more upmarket elegant feel a black and white chequerboard tile design is the perfect choice in a classic townhouse.
The colour of your choice of flooring is also important dependant on the size of your hallway. Dark polished wooden floors or deep red terracotta tiles will make a small hall appear smaller, while stripped lighter wood or neutral coloured tiles will help to enhance the feeling of space when combined with a white or cream decorating scheme.
Bear in mind that there are lots of different materials to choose from, so if you have set your heart on a wooden floor but need something that is easier to keep clean there are porcelain tiles available that mimic the effect of wooden planks in a variety of colours and finishes.
Complement a rich and luxurious colour scheme, such as this exotic plum feature wall, with dark wooden floors. A deep, polished glow adds a touch of glamour to a traditional hallway and pairs well with black gloss furniture.
Vinyl floor tiles are a stylish and practical choice for a hallway.
