Choosing hallway floor tiles

A thoroughfare of the traffic of everyday life, receiver of post through the letter box and home to discarded footwear and coats - it’s easy to take the humble hallway for granted.

But large or small, modern or traditional, it's definitely worth taking time to choose the right flooring, so we've filtered out our favourite floor tiles to inspire you.

Here are some great reasons to overhaul your hallway:

  • Make a lasting first impression on your guests by choosing the right hall tiles. When guests enter your home, the hallway is the first thing to greet them.
  • With the rain comes mud, and with mud comes footprints and pawprints! Save yourself the effort of carpet cleaning by swapping to low-maintenance floor tiles.
  • Floor tiles can be extremely hard-wearing – perfect for an area that has such a high footfall.
  • Non-slip floor tiles will guarantee you both style and safety.

Choosing the right hallway tiles

The material things

Floor tiles can be made from a variety of materials, so here’s a quick overview of the benefits of each:

Bold and striking, slate tiles are very durable, but need to be sealed to prevent damage from moisture absorption.

A more cost-effective option than slate but not as porous, porcelain tiles are durable and available in a wide variety of colours, styles and textures.

Ceramic tiles allow you to really unleash your creativity as the extensive choice of colours and styles is seemingly endless.

Fired at a high temperature in a similar way to brick, clay makes a solid choice for a durable tile.

Our style tips

Lightly does it
If you have a smaller hallway, go with lighter shades for the floors and walls.

Never too busy
While floor tiles are easy to clean, a busier pattern will help to disguise any muddy foot (or paw) prints!

Go to great lengths
Shorter hallway? Choose longer tiles and run them vertically to create an illusion of more space.
