First impressions count, so naturally you will want your guests to be greeted by a welcoming, stylish and practical space. Whether you are planning the flooring in a new property, renovating a home, or simply looking to refresh your hallway, tiles are the perfect way to transform the space, whilst also being durable and easy to keep clean. If you are wondering how to create a functional space that matches your personal style, take a look at our top tiling tips.
1. Add a splash of colour
Hallways and porches tend to be small rooms, which makes them the perfect space to add a splash of colour. Dramatic and bold colours, such as greens, blues and yellows will create a vibrant finish, with practical wall tiles being a great choice for entranceways. There are many potential options available, such as these Chiswick tiles which are available in both plain and decorative styles. A great tip is to tile the bottom half of a wall as the tiles can be quickly wiped clean, making them a practical choice for busy homes.
2. Choose a monochrome style
Black and white monochrome tiles such as those within our Imagine range are timeless styles that will work beautifully within both modern and period homes. The tiles combine to create a stunning pattern and thanks to the chalky whites and muted black tones, the tiles are the perfect understated finish within porches and hallways of every size.
3. Opt for a low-key grey finish
The colour grey is another timeless option which is ideal is you are looking for a low-key neutral choice. Our Sonnet range of patterned tiles are the ideal way to turn your hallway or porch into a stunning focal point, and thanks to the neutral tones, the tiles can be paired with a variety of accessories to suit every décor style.
4. Add a decorative touch
Decorative patterns are a great way to add a focal point to both small and large hallways, with the geometric style of our Luxor range offering a variety of interesting designs. The Mediterranean inspired colours incorporate greens, blues, browns and creams to create a range of plain and patterned tiles that can be used interchangeably for a striking finish.
5. Choose a practical wood-effect finish
If you are a fan of beautiful natural wood, you are not alone. However, natural timber floors are not the most practical option and you will need to spend time maintaining the timber to ensure the floor maintains its beautiful finish. If you are thinking of using natural wood within your hallways or entranceways, take a look at our Chateau range of wood-effect tiles. The porcelain plank style tiles are available in a variety of finishes which are designed to mimic the natural tones and grains of real wood, so there is no need to compromise on style.
6. Add a natural stone style finish
Natural stone is one of the most practical choices for hallways, porches and entrances, as the textured surface is able to hide small marks and dirt well, in comparison to a gloss finish. Within the Navarro range we stock a variety of tiles that are designed to offer a budget-friendly alternative to natural stone, such as our Rushmore, Verve, Weller, and Waterfall collections.
7. Incorporate marble for an elegant touch
A simple way to add a touch of elegance to your hallway is to incorporate marble-effect tiles, and with many shades and patterns available there is plenty of choice. If you are hoping to create a bright and open feel within a small space, the light colours of our Regency Marble and Vespa Carrara tiles are perfect. Whereas, the darker tones within our Moonstone and Storm ranges are ideal for larger entranceways where they will create an immediate impact.
