The hall is an area of the home that often gets neglected but it’s the first room your guests (and you) see when you enter your home. So, it’s important that it sets the scene and feels warm and welcoming.
You don’t have to spend hours of time and excessive money redecorating. With relatively little thought and effort, you can create the perfect grand entrance to entice your guests inside.
Most importantly, always ensure the hallways is kept clear and tidy. Guests feel more relaxed when entering a space that’s uncluttered.
If you don’t have a cupboard to store coats and shoes, make sure you invest in pretty, purpose-built hat stand or rack. Functional doesn’t have to mean ugly or boring.
Make sure you still show off your personality by hanging pictures or photographs on the walls.
The right door runner will add style and can keep your carpets cleaner for longer.
Candlelight will always warm up a hallway. A scented candle adds instant atmosphere. In winter, choose a rich, spicy scent and in summer, keep it fresh with a light floral or citrus scent.
Alternatively, a room diffuser or a bowl of natural potpourri is a safer alternative that will still fill the house with a lovely smell.
