It’s often said that first impressions count and your hallway is usually the first opportunity to impress visitors in your home. Your hallway is the entrance and most used route to every other area in your property. Whether large or small, a room or a corridor, the effect of the constant foot traffic on your hallway flooring will be the same.
There are a number of things you should consider. Obviously it goes without saying, a hard wearing floor is a must but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for something boring and functional. The choice of products available is huge.
If your home is a period property with original features, then timber or stone tiles are probably the best option. Rough slate and brick floors are really effective in barn conversions or cottages but they tend to be a little uneven, so think carefully if that would hinder you in any way. If you’re more of a ‘Grand Design’ property owner, then why not take a look at polished concrete? There are also some fabulous concrete tiles on the market that are really effective if you love the texture but want a slightly more conventional design.
Your colour choice is also important. Dark finishes, whatever the material, will make the space seem smaller, which is fine if you have a vast hallway but if not, go for light neutrals, stripped back or washed timber.
A choice of gorgeous stone and wood flooring can be found at Pure Stone: www.pure-stone.co.uk
When it comes to your stairs, again the choice of flooring depends on your lifestyle. You can opt for bare timber treads, a runner or fully carpeted. This is a very personal choice and while the wooden treads are more practical be sure to add an anti slip finish to the step surface to avoid any nasty mishaps. A good compromise is a runner and most quality carpet suppliers will make bespoke carpets for your staircase. We like the sisal flooring at Design Flooring Ltd. It’s hard wearing, contemporary and blends beautifully with a wide range of other materials, making it ideal for hallways.

Our new staircase looks fantastic. We’ve had lots of compliments and it has transformed our hallway. The whole experience was great from beginning to end, from discussing our requirements to the finished article.
Mr & Mrs Begbie, Hampshire
The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.
Cherry Murdoch, London
From the initial meeting with the senior designer to discuss our needs, to the surveyor and then the installer, we were extremely delighted with the end result. The installation process went without any problems. All the staff were very professional and we would recommend Neville Johnson without hesitation.
Rosalind Tunnicliffe, Solihull
From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings. The staircase has transformed our living space. We have been very impressed with this company from start to finish and would not hesitate to recommend them.
Pauline Treston, Northumberland
From the outset of our contract with Neville Johnson, we were supported with design choices, given expert advice and all deadlines were met. Everyone was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The craftsmanship is superb; our staircase is now an outstanding feature of our open plan lounge.
Judith Scorer, Stockport
From the moment the brochure was delivered, I was optimistic that we were buying quality. I wasn’t disappointed. All contact made was courteous, polite and clear, with phone calls confirmed by email. In short, we’re really thrilled with our library and it was effortless from start to finish.
Alison Cole, Swinton
I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.
Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham
A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.
Richard Smith, Surrey
From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.
Mrs S. D, Lincolnshire
From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!
Mr and Mrs Thorpe, Radcliffe
