When you are looking for new flooring for your hallway, there are a few things you may want to think about.  The hallway is the first area that you, your family or visitors will see.  It is important to get the look and feel right for the type of home that you have.  Flooring for a hallway can really help with creating a stylish, yet practical atmosphere.


What factors should I consider?

Firstly, you will want a hardwearing floor.  Hallways are possibly one of the busiest areas of a home, so you will want your floor to be durable enough to withstand the daily footfall.

Secondly, you should think about the style and colour of flooring you would like.  There are many different options, ranging from plank flooring, parquet block, or even ceramic tile effect luxury vinyl flooring.

And finally, you may want a waterproof or water-resistant floor, especially if you do not have a separate porch area or don’t intend on using doormats.  


What are the best types of flooring for hallways?

We feel that the following are the best options of flooring for hallways:

Waterproof Luxury Vinyl Tile – this is perfect if you want a floor that is waterproof, yet looks and feels natural. Luxury Vinyl Tiles are designed to mimic wooden flooring or stone tiles, but they don’t have any of the drawbacks of a natural material.  It is definitely worth having a look at our range.


Engineered Hardwood Flooring – real wood flooring can really transform a hallway into a sophisticated and welcoming area. You have the choice of traditional plank style flooring or opt for more of a statement with parquet block or chevron flooring.



Waterproof Laminate - again, if you are looking for a waterproof floor covering, then waterproof laminate may be worth considering. You won’t get the same natural feel as a wood or bamboo floor, but you will get a cost-effective alternative.


Bamboo Flooring – strand woven bamboo flooring is over twice as hard as Oak flooring. This makes it a great choice for any area (especially a hallway) with high footfall.  It looks elegant and has a natural feel about it and is extremely durable.  There are many colours and styles to choose from.
