    Black hallway with painted white stair treads

    Black isn’t a common colour to decorate with, but boy does it look good. The key to decorating with dark colours like this is to make sure you have plenty of contrast with brightening and lightening white. The stair treads here keep the look perfectly balanced, for example.

  • Exposed-brick hallway with spiral staircase

    Exposed-brick hallway with spiral staircase

    Exposed bricks and solid-oak flooring make for a super-impressive spiral staircase, where architectural design meets rustic materials. This look is all about the materials, so the oak treads have been given a very neutral-looking varnish that highlights their natural variation. A slimline handrail and white paint under the stair keep the scheme uncluttered.

  • Hallway with oversized wall clock and bench

    Hallway with oversized wall clock and bench

    Make your entrance hallway something special with pieces you won’t be able to miss. Here, an oversized clock with a distressed finish takes centre stage.

  • Green entrance hall with Gothic arched door

    Green entrance hall with Gothic arched door

    Think of your hallway as another living space. Consider your colour scheme carefully – the green paint here makes it feel like another room in the home, while white acts as a highlighter to the beautiful period details, such as the Gothic doorway. Tiles that reach into the next room help to connect the hallway to the rest of the home.

  • White hallway with grey painted stair runner

    White hallway with grey painted stair runner

    Take an innovative approach to painting your staircase. Rather than one colour of paint, choose two so that you create the effect of a stair runner. Paint banisters white so the grey really stands out and you don’t have lots of different shades to confuse the look. And make masking tape your friend to get a straight line.

  • Neutral hallway with box storage unit

    Neutral hallway with storage unit and seagrass boxes

    Hallways are high-traffic zones that can be tricky to keep tidy. But as with every room, good storage is the key. This shelving unit is filled with storage boxes that will hide all the bits and bobs you’d rather were kept out of view. A wooden bench is an ideal spot for putting on wellies (or for petting pooches).

    Paint a hallway in the purest of whites to create a light and bright space. A slightly off-white shade below the dado rail provides a bit of warmth. Chandeliers are excellent for emphasising high ceilings and this intricate design has plenty of space to spread some colour.
