1. Think about tiles
Encaustic tiles in a graphic pattern look fresh and contemporary and give a landing, corridor or hallway an immediate effect. These handcrafted cement floor tiles are available in a variety of color combinations and create a trendy look with a handcrafted feel. They add the wow factor before visitors take off their coats.
2. Mix and match materials
Add texture and pattern to your inviting space with a color-coordinated patchwork rug over bare floorboards. When you replace a solid partition with windows, light falls into your landing or entrance hall and creates a light and airy feeling. Meanwhile, adding a striped stair runner creates a subtle, eclectic look.
3. Work with vinyl
Choosing a lively stripe design ensures a bright reception and helps to direct your gaze to the other rooms in the house. The eye-catching woven vinyl shown here adds a practical element to a high-traffic space such as a hallway, landing or corridor, and is also an easy-care option.
4. Make a sturdy look
An aged flagstone floor works especially well when paired with rustic, tactile pieces and antique furniture. Add a colorful stair runner to personalize the space and give it a touch of individuality. Natural wicker baskets and wood tones combine to create a warm and inviting hallway.
5. Play with the pattern
The geometric trend shows no signs of losing weight. So create your own design-oriented hallway with a great color and pattern hit. A patterned carpet that is used as a wall covering makes an unusual, effective statement. Choose furniture and accessories in shades for a cohesive look.
6. Lay parquet for a timeless look
This classic wood black floor gives an elegant elegance to traditional or modern environments. Oak is a classic choice for hardwood floors, but dark woods (like walnut) add depth, and bamboo is a more eco-friendly option that gives modern homes a lighter shade.
