Hallway upgrade: 10 wow items to buy now

First impressions count and if your hallway needs a makeover, we’re here to help. Your hall sets the scene for your style and it’s the place where you welcome visitors to your home. As well as impressing guests, the area often needs to work in practical terms too, whether providing a place to sit and take off shoes or a safe spot to stash your keys. Here are some easy ideas to elevate your hallway into something special.  

  1. Choose beautiful but functional objects such as this stylish daybed, which combines Japanese and Scandinavian design styles, otherwise known as Japandi. It’s the perfect place to sit and take a moment.  
  2. Keep the designer style stakes high with this doughnut-shaped convex mirror made from sheet stainless steel and polished to a high gloss. It’s sure to add interest to any hallway and you can check your hair on the way out of the door. 
  3. Make your hallway feel warm and welcoming with this stunning rug by Paul Smith. Handknotted in Tibetan wool, Refraction Light is an abstract exploration of colour and form that will bring the wow factor to your home.  
  4. Wall cladding is having something of a moment, and we’ve fallen for this elegant and luxurious dark oak design. Called Clue Bog Oak, it’s sanded and polished until it’s ultra-smooth, also featuring sleek lines and shapes. Use it to make your hallway stand out from the crowd.  
  5. Make a statement with this Diego Olivero floor sculpture created in grey metal or there are different wood options to choose from. Act quickly because it’s currently in the sale.  
  6. Light up your entrance hall with a gorgeous light fitting. If you’ve got the ceiling height, this modern Basalt nine pendant light from Heals is a stunning choice.  
  7. Perfect for providing a little extra storage, this chest by Knowles & Christou is beautiful and adds a pop of colour too. It features three drawers made in oak veneer with solid beech legs and a choice of finishes.  
  8. Add a handcrafted side table to your hallway such as this showstopper by Max McCance who draws inspiration from naturally occurring shapes and forms. Pop a light on top of the table or a dish to hold your keys.   
  9. Create a soft glow with this elegant wall light with a nod to the Art Deco era. The LED light source refracts through the reeded glass to create an illuminating warmth. You can choose from clear or frosted glass and several finishes including antique, satin brass, bronze or satin nickel finish. 
  10. If you prefer a pendant light, consider this lovely option by Soho. The shell-like shape casts a wash of gentle light across your hallway.
