  • First Impressions Count: How To Style Your Hallway

    December 16th, 2022

    Hallways are among the most important areas in any home. They’re the first impression that a guest gets of your home; they can be used for storage or simply to add colour and style to your home. The style of your hallway needs to match the rest of your home for a cohesive look.

    In such a busy area that also needs to look stylish, it’s important to consider choosing flooring that can withstand lots of wear and tear and continue to look great. In addition, you need a material that is both comfortable and attractive – Pro-Tek™’s range of vinyl flooring offers both of these qualities in abundance.

    The importance of an elegant hallway

    The hallway sets the tone for your home. It’s the first thing guests see when they walk in and is the first feeling of home when you come back to your house. An elegant hallway makes a great first impression and will leave your guests feeling excited to explore the rest of your home.

    A chaotic, mismatched or dirty hallway gives you or your guests a negative attitude before they even sit down, so it’s important to pay special attention to the space.

    A Pro-Tek™ floor that is stylish and practical will keep your home looking good whether or not you have guests over. There are a huge number of options to choose from when deciding on flooring, and choosing the right colour, material and texture will set the tone for the rest of the house.

    Hallways need to be practical as well as stylish

    Hallways are an important part of the house that need to be functional and stylish. Every member of the family walks through the hallway multiple times a day; the hallway sees shopping, work bags, shoes and everything in between thrown on the floor, so it’s wise to select high-quality flooring that’s built to last.

    Pro-Tek™ Vinyl Flooring is the ideal choice for your hallway. It’s easy to clean, slip-resistant and waterproof. They’re known for being hardwearing and come with a lifetime guarantee for residential properties. Pro-Tek™ flooring also comes with a scratch-resistant surface as standard to ensure that it can withstand the wear and tear that hallways face over the years.

    Having installed Pro-Tek™ vinyl flooring, it’s wise to consider other ways to make the hallway a more practical and inviting space. Adding storage solutions for shoes and coats will help to declutter the hallway, making it feel much larger – you could also consider adding somewhere to sit to put shoes on.

    The best vinyl flooring options for hallways

    Hallways need to be practical, but first impressions count, so it needs to look great too.

    If you’re looking for a versatile, attractive and practical solution for your hallway flooring, then look no further than our wood effect vinyl flooring. The realistic appearance of this stylish material can be paired with many different colours and patterns to suit your interior design preferences.

    If you’re not sure how you want your hallway to look, but you need a practical floor straight away, then a mid-toned wood effect floor will allow you to evolve your design over time.

    If you want your hallway to have an impact then darker colours will create an impression of grandeur when guests enter the house. This is particularly true when paired with intricate patterns such as herringbone vinyl flooring or strong materials like stone effect tiles.

    Choosing the right colour scheme for a hallway

    Choosing the right colour scheme for your hallway is massively important. It needs to be practical yet also reflect your personal tastes and be welcoming to guests.

    One easy way to make a space feel cohesive is to select a colour that compliments the rest of your house. If you have neutral-toned furniture and walls throughout, it makes sense to pick neutral shades of wood that complement the look of everything else around them.

    A mid-toned wooden floor doesn’t have to be boring – a neutral-coloured herringbone can add depth to a design without adding too many new elements to your home decor. A good rule of thumb is to think about what other parts of your home are made out of and try choosing something similar for the hallway.

    For busy family homes, avoid light-toned wood and white walls. While light floors can be good at hiding small pieces of dust or dirt, the second your child runs in after spending time in the playground, you’ll be frustrated at the state of the floor. Instead, choose a mid-toned wood, stone or marble effect tile for an exciting design flare that doesn’t compromise on practicality. 

    Safety is an important consideration, especially for the elderly and small children.

    Safety is an important consideration when choosing your new floor, especially if you have elderly relatives or small children. Pro-Tek™ flooring is slip-resistant, waterproof and scratch resistant. These properties help to ensure that you and your family stay safe in your home for years to come.

    Pro-Tek™ flooring is an excellent choice for any home. It’s durable, easy to clean and has great style. Pro-Tek™ vinyl flooring comes in a variety of colours and textures that can be easily paired with any decorating style to give your home a cohesive appearance without compromising functionality.

    Hallways are one of the busiest areas of the home, so it is important that they look great and feel comfortable. By choosing the right vinyl flooring for your hallway, you can ensure that it looks amazing for years to come, no matter what life throws at you.
