  • Grey traditional hallway with laminate flooring

    Laminate flooring not only gives this hallway a sophisticated style, it’s hardwearing too. Storing shoes is the bane of many households. A storage unit by the door takes away any of the hassle, while keeping unsightly shoes hidden. Learn how to layer greys for a calming effect in a classic scheme.

  • Pale green hallway with handy wall storage

    Light grey-green paint in a hallway adds a touch of sophistication. A homely vibe is achieved via a budget-priced repurposed plate rack – use one to display books and ornaments. And you don’t have to hang cups from the cup hooks – why not hang stylish, funky accessories that will add character instead.

  • Hallway with effortlessly mixed patterns

    Keeping the walls and flooring simple in a hallway means you can introduce beautiful floral patterns with matching curtains and blinds. A statement patterened cabinet in an Oriental style makes for perfect shoe storage, while Eastern-style ornaments and simple artwork introduce subtle decorative elements without overwhelming the space.

  • Grey hallway with wall-hung basket storage and bicycle

    Keep a hallway scheme simple by painting a single wall in an on-trend grey. Choose an easy-on-the-eye mid tone that keeps the space practical and light but still warm. If you lack the space for large pieces of storage furniture, think about wall-hung shelving. This space features hanging baskets that not only provide cubby holes for hallway paraphernalia, but have the look of display pieces, too.

  • Country-house stairwell with picture gallery

    A small internal hallway will always benefit from an all-white decorating scheme. This one stops short of coolness with the addition of a plain neutral carpet that flows into the adjoining rooms. Break up a run of white walls with a selection of favourite pictures, photographs or art in matching frames – these ones in a burnished gold finish have real impact.

  • White country hallway with patterned staircase

    Give personality to painted stairs by pasting patterned wallpaper to the risers. Alternate different designs in fresh colours to draw the eye up the stairs and keep things looking bright. Pastel shades such as these work really well in a country cottage and although it may all appear to be a bit random, the look is extremely well thought-out – after all, even the rug at the bottom of the stairs matches the colours of the wallpaper.

  • Country hallway with white furniture

    Balancing the inside-outside feel in a room with a view can, potentially, be tricky. Here, a monochrome palette keeps this hallway space fresh – and functional as a place to make and take phone calls – without detracting from the country views beyond.

  • Hallway landing with mirrored window frame

    Create an optical illusion on a landing by hanging a recycled window frame fitted with glass. Here the reflection suggests both a window and a second stairwell – a great way to bring a touch more light into a traditionally dark area of the house. Go for uncovered whitewashed stairs and clad the return wall in tongue-and-groove panelling painted in gentle grey for a country touch – and who wouldn’t be without a rather large ampersand?

  • Hallway with papered stair risers and peg shelf storage

    Be creative in a small hallway. A neutral backdrop lightens up what tends to be a dark area of the house and is easy to patch up after knocks and scuffs. Here, the tight turn at the foot of the stairs has been fitted with a peg shelf at door height for storing coats and bags, while a peg rail below has the visual function of a dado rail but also doubles as a further storage option. Paper stair rises for an easy way to introduce colour and pattern – just apply a hardwearing transparent varnish for durability.

  • Hallway mirror decorated for Easter

    A welcoming garland and ornamental rabbits set the tone for Easter visitors in this country hallway. A glass cloche filled with painted eggs makes a pretty display that is quick and easy to create and can be re-appropriated at Christmas by filling it with baubles instead of eggs. Easter cards perched on the mirror add a colourful finishing touch.
