    Go for statement flooring

    There’s no reason why a practical family hallway can’t also have a strong design edge. A traditional palette can be brought up to date with hardwearing carpet tiles laid diagonally, wrought-iron light fittings and a focal-point mirror.

    HOW TO MAKE IT WORK

    • Choose practical flooring and think about unusual ways to lay it in order to create a strong design element. Carpet tiles are ideal in high-traffic areas as they can be easily moved or replaced when worn.
    • A radiator cabinet can be designed to be deeper than necessary to create a handy console table-style surface.
    • Update doors with a new set of smart handles and add decorative film to windows.
    • A chest creates a perch for putting on shoes as well as storage for scarves and gloves.
