Concerned about the credit crunch? We've got great ideas on how to update your hallway on a budget
Use tidy trays
Simple storage trays are great for tidying up keys and change. Use another for a display of roses in tumblers to greet guests.
Add a subtle lighting
A smart lamp brings a touch of sophistication to the table – and adds a warm glow to the hall.
Go for smart storage
Hide hallway clutter in smart storage cubes. Mix and match different sizes to suit your needs – a larger box makes for a great seat for little ones to put on shoes.
Create a picture gallery
A single painting above the hallway table can look sparse, try a gallery of framed family photos on three painted panels to create an eye-catching feature.
Add patterned wallpaper
The pièce de résistance, this wallpaper makes the ultimate style statement and, unlike plain walls, hides a multitude of sins in a high-traffic area.
