Give your hallway a style makeover

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.
