Your entrance hall is the calling card of your home and really sets the tone for the rest of your property. When a guest walks through your door, what they see will give them all the information they need to make a judgement as to your taste and style, and any interior designer worth their salt will tell you that a hallway must not be an after thought! If you're a little stuck for ideas as to how you can make yours something to really envy, come with us now, as we have found some spectacular spaces to inspire you!

1. Use some colour in unexpected areas, such as doors and door frames.

3. Neutrals add a calming effect that really says welcome.

4. Include somewhere to sit, for some extra comfort.
