Small Hallway Ideas

Small Hallway Design Ideas

Laura Bellamy Trends

Have you ever heard the phrase ‘small homes grow tight families?’ Well, that’s exactly what we believe as we love small spaces and we like to get creative with them too. Discovering how to use space to maximise its fullest potential is fun and easy to do with a little guidance from us here at Brookside.

Here, we take you through our favourite décor ideas for small spaces, focusing on that narrowest of spaces, your hallway. Hallways are usually the most neglected part of any home and can often be ignore completely, but it’s the first place you see when you return home.

Use patterns

The best way to make your hallway full of life in such tight spaces is to add a beautiful feature wall that’s bright, bold and welcoming. Feature walls add a dynamic feel to your space which created an eye-catching point of interest when you enter the room.

You’re trying to make a statement in your hallway and provide guests with a little intrigue. Perhaps the rest of the house is just as interesting?

Get industrial

If you’re adding any furniture into your tight spaces, try using an industrial look. This will allow you to add in stand alone pieces of furniture. It will also give you a small storage unit for coats, shoes, bags and umbrellas, depending on the size. Not only is this convenient but it makes everything look neat and tidy.

Keep a focus on the fact that industrial furniture looks less bulky and won’t make people feel cramped when they walk into your home. Industrial metal style furniture is often sleek and elegant.

Stay cosy

Nothing says cosy like small and we love cosy. Luckily for you, small interiors are the best place to start when adding a touch of comfort into your home.

A rustic touch in these areas is the best way we can advise you decorate your living space for a cosy yet homely feel.

At Brookside we have an extensive range of carpets made from natural fibres including seagrass, sisal and coir which add texture and comfort to any room in the house. Our natural flooring is also very hard wearing and durable, meaning it is also suitable for high footfall areas.

Choose accessories

Mirrors are a great way to make any space look a touch bigger. Choose a delicate metallic frame or a chunky country looking one to keep your home in tune with your current theme across your interiors.


Our advice when picking colours is to keep it light with metallics, creams, whites and greys until you add a feature wall.

Patterned plants along with bright, bold, floral prints are at the top of everyone’s shopping list this year so get on trend and add a pinch of tropical luxury into your tight interiors – it may even cure those winter blues.
