Walk-ins: Hallways to inspire

Ikea

Want to make a great first impression? It’s easy to overlook focusing on optimising a hallway, but it can really set the tone of your home. It’s also a good place to experiment before committing to any particular trend or colour. Here’s ten inspiring entrance halls and why they work.

Awkward corners are often avoided, so  work with  the space. Instead of leaving an area unused and unloved, display similar items together. Choose a theme or colour to keep the look cohesive.

Think beyond the traditional. Why shouldn’t a hallway be a herb garden? Imagine the fresh scent of lemon verbena or lavender wafting through the home. Divine.
