Hardwood Flooring and Hallways

Hardwood floors are suitable for most rooms in your home, including your hallway.  Your hallway is usually the entrance into your home, so you will no doubt want a beautiful and stylish floor covering.

We have a wide range of hardwood floor options to choose from.  You will have to think about the colour scheme and décor of your hallway, how busy the area is. Finally, you will need to consider the style of flooring you want.


Which type of hardwood is best for my hallway?

A hallway or entrance room will usually be one of the busiest areas of your home.  With this in mind, you will want a hard wearing and durable floor.  Different species of wood have different strengths and hardnesses.  Oak flooring is a reasonable hardness and easily able to withstand the high footfall that can come with a hallway. It looks beautiful and it is easy to maintain.  Oak is one of the most popular species of wood flooring.  There are so many different colour tones, plank sizes and surface finishes to choose from.

Another great alternative is strand woven bamboo flooring, which is even stronger than Oak.

Which style of hardwood flooring is best for my hallway?

The style of flooring really depends upon your décor and style of hallway.  The two main styles to choose from are plank flooring and parquet block flooring. Plank style flooring is the traditional plank of wooden floor.  The beauty is that you can choose different plank sizes depending upon the size and shape of your room.  Narrow planks can create an illusion of a longer looking hallway, while wider planks look perfect in a large open area. If you decide that you would like something slightly different then we would suggest considering parquet block flooring.  The small blocks of flooring allow you to create stunning patterns, including herringbone, basket weave and brickbond.  You may also want to take a look at Chevron flooring.
