Hall, stairs and landing

Your hall, stairs and landing can sometimes feel like forgotten, overlooked areas of your home. Although these are passing through places rather than destination rooms, they are no less important.

Remember that your hallway is the first part of your home that visitors see – it needs to be welcoming, light and uncluttered. You could consider creating a feature wall in this area or try out bold wallpaper and a colourful runner.

Nowadays, there’s a wonderful array of wallpaper to choose from, including the timeless Lincrusta. It’s easier than ever to flatter these areas of your home with delicate patterns, bold designs, deeply embossed or pearlised finishes.


Picking the perfect palette

When choosing colours for your hall, go for a scheme that will flow easily from one room to another. Paler shades tend to increase the feeling of space and light. For traditional properties, you might like to consider panelling the walls, finishing with a washable gloss then papering above the dado rail.

For your hall, stairs and landing, why not think about adding interest with textured wallpaper? If you prefer paint, bear in mind that neutral walls are easily marked so choosing paint in a contrasting colour is a wise idea. You’d be surprised at the difference that investing in these areas can make.

Landings by nature see a lot of footfall as they link rooms. The key, especially in smaller spaces, is to keep things simple but interesting so your décor should reflect this – uncluttered, thoughtful, timeless.
