Industrial style meets the hallway

Hallways are often a little neglected when it comes to decor. However, in terms of setting the tone for the rest of your home, getting the style of your hallway right is really important.

Your hallway can be seen as an opportunity to make an impact as soon as your guests walk through the door and is the perfect place for being a little more creative when it comes to decorating. Industrial style is great for this – with clean style and plenty of personality, it is the perfect option for any stylish, contemporary home.

Add a console table

A console table is a staple piece of furniture for any hallway, perfect for maintaining a clutter-free space and providing storage for smaller items for grabbing on your way out of the door.

A reclaimed wood console table will stand the test of time and provide effortless style. Try and find a design which blends reclaimed wood with metal elements for a sleek yet charismatic finish.

Experiment with colour

An industrial style is a great option because it allows really allows flexibility to go with any floor and wall colour. For an understated take on the industrial style, go with light neutral colours on your walls and beautiful wooden flooring.

Alternatively, you could create more of a statement with a bold paint colour like navy or a darker grey. If you do go for a darker colour, make sure your hallway has a window or some way of bringing light into your room.
