Once you’ve sorted out the functional in your hallway – somewhere to hang hats and coats and a seat to facilitate removing footwear, if necessary – then, as in a cloakroom or a downstairs loo, it’s time to get creative. As this is a space that, on the whole, we pass through pretty quickly, it also offers the opportunity for a bit of self-expression.

So, if you’re in the mood for an update, here are a few ideas.

  1. Install that flooring you’ve been dreaming about.
  2. Choose eye-catching lighting.

3. If you have the space, turn your hallway into a quiet spot with window seat and favourite artwork.

4. Be brave! Tucked away under the stairs in this elegant hallway, the owner has taken a risk and displayed a favourite collection.

5. This is the perfect place to indulge in strong colours or statement wallpapers. If the “drenching” trend is too much for you, be bold with doors or accessories.

6. Creative LED lighting brings extra depth to this window-less hallway where storage and seating are combined in a bespoke unit.

7. A Mondrian-effect mirrored wall increases the impression of space and light.

8. If space is really tight, investigate the possibilities of fitting a wall-hung console table.
