The hallway is often seen as a transitory point that you pass through to come into or leave your home and, for that reason, it can be an area that is overlooked in terms of décor and design. By using hallway tiles, you can transform your hallway into a welcoming space, giving a good first impression to guests as well as making you feel like you’ve arrived back into the sanctuary of your home when you walk through the door.
The Practical Benefits of Hallway Tiles
Your hallway is a very busy area of the home, and it sees a lot of footfall. For that reason, tiles are a fitting floor covering, having many benefits over carpet or laminate flooring. Carpet is prone to wear, it gathers dust and it’s hard to get clean once it’s muddy. Though laminate flooring is cheap, it can easily split and is prone to being slippery when wet. Hallway tiles offer a more practical alternative as they’re safer and their surface means they are easy to clean. Being made out of porcelain or ceramic, they are also very durable.
Choosing Hallway Tiles For Your Home
When choosing hallway tiles, you should consider the size of your hallway and its immediate surroundings. Though it’s common to think that certain tiles suit certain design periods, at Miles of Tiles, our tiles have a versatility that makes them suitable for a range of homes, whatever the era.
Wooden floors have always enjoyed popularity as they have a warm, earthy and natural look. A downside is that they need care and attention to keep them at their best. If you want the look of wood but without the maintenance, then Wood Effect Tiles are ideal. To add a lightness to the entrance of your home, while also bringing a feeling of space, our Dreamwood Grey Wood would be a great choice. These ceramic hallway tiles feature realistic ash-grey wood effect tones and a textured surface along their length, imitating wood grain. Their long rectangular format also means that they lend themselves to a narrow corridor-type hallway.
Another of our hallway tiles that has timeless appeal are our marble effect Invisible Marble Polished. Though these tiles are often thought of as best fitting a bathroom environment, marble has a refined feel wherever it is used. If you have a hallway that’s on a grander scale, then these larger hallway tiles will make for a stunning entrance to your home.
Once you’ve chosen the perfect tile, it’s time for some housekeeping. Hallways can often be a dumping ground for shoes, making for an untidy space. Keep them out of sight in an upstairs cupboard, save for just a couple of pairs of the shoes you wear the most that you can stow in a small shoe storage rack. If you follow this tip, there’s more floor space visible to allow your new hallway tiles to really shine!
