The hallway is a transition space from one room to another, so it is often neglected. However, these empty spaces also pose a huge opportunity to do something big, and using wallpaper is a great way to do this. Depending on the set-up of your house, you may even catch a glimpse of the hallway from a main room in your house. Even if it is a mere glimpse, the brilliant, bold design can brighten up your day. In addition, hallways often lack windows, so they can easily be dark, dingy, and even claustrophobic. However, with bold wallpaper in this space, you’ll feel like you’re walking down your own personal catwalk every day! So wallpapering a hallway can make the world of difference to your living space, and it’s something that people often overlook!

Entranceways and hallways often overlap, but they’re the first thing that you will see when you enter your home. Therefore, how you choose to decorate them can have a huge impact on your mood. For example, when you first get in from your day of work, you might want to see a happy and uplifting wallpaper to brighten up your day. Moreover, the entranceway is the first thing that other people see, so a bold design of wallpaper can make a great first impression of you on other people. So make yourself memorable and seize the opportunity by going bold with wallpaper in your hallways and entranceways. 

Read on to see how some of our wonderful customers on Instagram have used our wallpapers in their own hallways and entranceways...

 This weird, wonderful and whacky wallpaper will get conversations started, as it adds a brilliant pop of colour to this entranceway. Paired with pink, blue and white paint, this wallpaper adds that extra bit of interest that makes this space stand out. This quirky wallpaper design features an array of colourful animals and birds in quirky attire, including a chameleon with a top hat and a toucan in a bow tie.

Monochrome is another great option for a striking look as it is simple yet effective. There's something about black on white that really captures the eye and it looks bold yet chic at the same time.

This customer has incorporated our desinger Vesace wallpaper into their hallway which would otherwise be plain white all over. It matches excellently with the white and green paint, as well as the wooden floor and doors. The designer wallpaper being used features exquisite green Versace palm leafs on a cream backdrop. The textured wallpaper has a metallic, high shine finish which will add a truly luxurious feel to your home.

This hallway looks spectacular with this jungle themed wallpaper paired with white and gold decor as well as a wooden floor. It makes the home instantly look inviting and just what you want to see when you first walk in the door! The stunning design features a rainforest theme with an array of vibrant parrots, tropical foliage and flowers in deep rich tones of teal, green and pink, with a smooth matte finish.

@garsides_gaff using Flamingo Wallpaper in Pink

Flamingo Wallpaper Pink Rasch 277890

You can't get much more bright and bold than this on trend, flamingo wallpaper in pink! It works really well here with monochrome. In addition, the wonderfully detailed design gives the impression of a hand painted effect and is finished with a subtle mica sheen.

Donna on Trustpilot using Apex Geometric Wallpaper in Rose Gold

Apex Geometric Wallpaper Rose Gold Fine Decor FD41993

This popular geometric wallpaper in rose gold and pink really brightens and uplifts the hallway. The modern and contemporary style brings up your mood in an instant and looks amazing as a feature wall, but could easily be used to cover the entire room.

@niamh_monaghan using Emma J Shipley Animalia Extinct Wallpaper Gold

Emma J Shipley Animalia Extinct Wallpaper Gold W0100/02

This wallpaper design from the famous Emma J Shipley is from a brand that you would expect to see at high end stores such as Anthropologie and Oliver Bonas. The abstract and quirky design in a gorgeous gold colour really makes the wall pop. The design features a collection of detailed hand-painted style mythical and extinct animals, insects and curling vine-like branches in grey, black and white, with metallic antique gold touches.

@trolleydollyamy_rwl using Geometric Wallpaper White and Silver Pear Tree
