5 Hallway Ideas To Really Make An Entrance

Your hallway will likely be the first thing people see when they enter your home and the last thing they see before they leave, so you will want to make the right impact! Ensuring you have a functional hallway is important (especially for busy families), but this doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style.
There are several ways you can achieve a perfect blend of the two, showcasing your gorgeous attention to detail while keeping the space practical for daily use. Continue reading our top 5 hallway ideas to really make the most out of your space!

1. Introduce A Hallway Bench

Next to the bench, there is a tall, narrow wooden structure with hooks at the top, where a bag and a jacket are hanging. There is also a brick column on the left side of the bench.

Hallway benches are an excellent addition to your entryway, creating a place to store footwear while also adding a touch of your personal style to the space. The right hallway bench can help you create a warm and inviting atmosphere, making you feel at peace while entering your home after a busy day.
A hallway bench can also act as a focal point in the room, allowing you to add extra storage above it while still appearing tidy and uncluttered. At Funky Chunky Furniture, we offer hallway benches ranging in styles from a more airy country cottage aesthetic to a chunky, rustic and robust industrial style.

2. Utilise Console Tables

Console tables are popular for many, as they provide a handy space to store everyday essentials and a surface to add eye-catching decor. Console tables are a gorgeous addition to any hallway inside your home, injecting character into the space and making your interior feel complete.

3. Install Coat Hooks & Hall Storage

If you are looking to increase the practicality of your hallway, adding more storage features is just one way of doing so. Create a dedicated place for your coats and jackets in an area that is easily accessible as you are walking out the door.
Wall-mounted coat hooks offer a sleek storage solution, helping you keep your home tidy while cleverly utilising wall space. Our selection of wooden coat hooks will not only create more storage but also offer a stylish touch to this everyday essential.

4. Create A Statement Piece

There is a console table against a wall with a textured wallpaper that has a light pattern. The table has a triangular shelf design and is made of wood and metal. On the table, there is a lamp with a green shade, a tall vase with long branches sticking out, and a few other decorative items including a bowl and some bottles. Below the table, on the shelf, there are more items including what appears to be bottles of wine.

A statement piece in your hallway is one way to wow guests who enter your home. For example, a striking mirror, wall clock, vase, or table lamp on or above your console table will instantly create a dramatic focal point that is sure to leave guests mesmerised by your decor.
Alternatively, you can keep it minimal and let your furniture do the talking. A captivating wooden console table or hallway bench with a unique design will naturally become your statement piece when placed in your hallway!

5. Incorporate Artistic Features

If you think your hallway is almost there but missing that finishing touch, consider implementing more artistic features in the space. An interesting bookshelf or intricate floral accents can instantly elevate your hallway, helping you match the space to the rest of your interior.
Our Ouseburn Bookshelf is the perfect example of an eye-catching artistic feature, with a unique geometric design that will bring interest to your wall space.
