Need to give your hallway a new lease of life? From buying a new console table to transforming your space with wallpaper, there are plenty of ways to give your entrance hall a budget-friendly update.
1. Cover up
It may sound like this simple update won't make much of a difference, but trust us it does. A radiator cover is a great place to store useful items (such as keys, etc) or simply somewhere to create a fabulous display.
2. Wonderful walls
Wallpapering your hallway will give your space a new lease of life. Save money by decorating just one wall. Paint the back of the door in a similar paint colour to tie the scheme together. A mix of artwork and accessories will also compliment the look.
3. Perfect display
Create a funky display by showcasing a treasured collection. Hang unusual items on the wall or house them in a wall-mounted shelf. Here, a large box frame painted in a vibrant hue acts as a great background for the display, helping to focus attention on the quirky bird collection.
4. The right rug
Want to inject a new lease of life into your hallway? A statement rug can add plenty of colour and personality. Here a polka dot rug livens up this traditional hallway scheme. Choose colourful accessories, such as bags, hooks and wellies to complete the look.
5. Console creations
Buying the perfect console table can be costly, but look out for cheap versions that you can transform by upcycling. Think outside the box, too. A small desk or chest of drawers can work just as well in an entrance hall. Try stencilling your furniture for a totally unique look.
