How to Make an Impact in the Hallway with Tiles
Hallways aren’t just there to take you from room to room. They’re the first area you see when you walk into the home and therefore have the potential to make a real impact. Contemporary or traditional, making sure your entranceway looks attractive and inviting is a crucial component when decorating the home. There’s no need to be cautious with colour - opting for brave, bold and daring palettes can be a fantastic way of making a statement and combining these colours with striking geometric patterns makes for a stylish finish.
One way to create a distinct effect in your hallway, regardless of style, is to use striking floor tiles. Small or narrow entranceways, or those with little natural light, would benefit from floor tiles that are slightly lighter in colour – they really add to the feeling of spaciousness.
