Your hallway, stairs, and landing might not be the first areas you consider when redecorating your home. While you probably spend more time in your kitchen, lounge, and bedroom, your property’s entryway is the first thing you’ll see each time you step inside.
Enjoy a beautiful aesthetic and atmosphere every time you come home when you design the space in a way that works for you.
The best hallway designs are both attractive and functional. Since the hall is the last place you’ll be before heading out and the first you see when arriving home, a few essential elements can improve the efficiency of your comings and goings.
Aim for a light and spacious finish
Glass balustrades are an excellent way to let natural light flow through your hallway and make small spaces appear larger. With a bespoke staircase renovation, you can choose between cut string glass panes, intricate glass spindles or anything in between. A beautiful transformation in less than 2 days.
Alternatively choosing light colours for your walls or hanging a mirror can easily create the illusion of more space, a bright hallway is always pleasant when you arrive home.
Include thoughtful storage
If you have space in your hallway – perhaps under the stairs or running along the wall – some built-in storage can make a significant difference. Whether you use it for shoes and coats or your dog walking accessories, some things are best kept close to the door.
When planning your hallway storage, it’s a good idea to choose a concealed or streamlined option that doesn’t encroach on your floor or wall space. An open, airy hallway is always something to aim for, so get smart with your storage solutions to tick both boxes. Bespoke soloutions can be an ideal investment, making use of every inch of your space and offering a streamlined aesthetic. Built-in storage can also utilise awkward angles and alcoves in your hallway, so you can enjoy an area that works just for you.
Don’t replace, renovate
Perhaps you can overhaul the look of your staircase with a lick of paint and the addition of a new gallery wall? Or maybe you’re thinking about a complete staircase renovation? The latter gives you more opportunities to be creative and can be completed in just a couple of days when you choose Neville Johnson. When you opt to renovate, rather than replace, you won’t need to pull your existing staircase apart and can make the most of the structure that’s already in place.
A Neville Johnson bespoke staircase design makes the most of your unique space. Perhaps you’re dreaming of a timeless glass and oak staircase or a striking dark wood and metal design? Whatever your preference, our expert designers and traditional craftsmen will work with you to create your dream staircase.
Landing design ideas
When planning a landing design, it’s a good idea to stick with the tone of your downstairs hallway and staircase to create a sense of flow throughout your home. With this in mind, maintain the same colour palette for a stylish hall, stairs, and landing design.
Maximise space with built-in solutions
Like downstairs, you should aim to maximise space on your landing. Well-considered storage solutions are ideal here and can house spare linens, towels, or other upstairs items that aren’t always used. If you have space, your landing is also an ideal place for a sleek home office. Work this around a window if possible for maximum light in your workspace.

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 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
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
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
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
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 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
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
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.
