At Sai Interiors we strongly believe that first impressions last. When it comes to our home, probably one of the most important and undervalued spaces is the hallway. It is the first room upon entering a house and as such gives you the opportunity to set the tone for the rest of your home.
This month we thought we’d provide inspiration on how tiles can be used to create huge impact along with a first impression that will last.
Bold Pattern Tiles
If you want to create a first impression that most people entering your home won’t forget any time soon, there really is no better way to do this than by using a strong bold patterned tile.
With the range and styles available on the market now, you are literally spoiled for choice. Patterned tiles are often pigeonholed into tiles to be used for period properties, however a smart monochrome patterned tile would not look out of place in a contemporary interiors scheme. Pop into your local Home Tiles Store to see their huge range of options. The look – Bold and Brash
Hallways are often the areas that have the greatest footfall. They connect several rooms in a house. Not only do they need to look beautiful, they need to be practical. A great solution, which is beautiful to look at as well as extremely hard wearing, is the wood effect porcelain tile from Home Tiles.
These come in a range of colours to suit any scheme. We absolutely love using these wood effect porcelain tiles. They look particularly stunning laid in a chevron pattern. The look – Stylish and Effective
Up the Wall
A huge part of our job as interior designers is to think out of the box. To create ideas and concepts that are away from the norm and that take a scheme to another level. Using artwork in hallways is one way to create visual impact as you enter a home, however one of our favourite designer tips that mixes it up a little, is to use tiles to create a feature wall as you enter a home.
This amazing home has done just that. Using wood effect porcelain tiles in different sizes and laid in several directions, the grout lines help to make this 4m high wall in a client’s entrance hall a work of art in itself!
If you are undergoing a hallway makeover then incorporating tiles into your design is a must. A perfect marriage of aesthetics and functionality! If you would like to find out anymore about how you can make an entrace to be proud of, contact us or visit your nearest Home Tiles store.
