Hallway tiling

The hallway is a fairly busy area of your home. And it’s the area that guests will see first when you invite them in. That means that you need to get your hallway tiling just right. It needs to be able to cope with the heavy footfall, and it needs to be incredibly durable. But at the same time, hallway tiling needs to be stylish, or even make a statement.

Choosing the best type of tile for a hallway?

The best type of tile for a hallway will depend on the level of maintenance you are willing to practice. While a porcelain tile will be well equipped to handle the heavy footfall, with little to no maintenance, natural stone tiles can look more impressive, but will need additional maintenance to remain waterproof.

In your hallway you can also make bolder tile choices that you wouldn’t normally make. This is because it is a smaller area that is often separate from the rest of your living area.

Choosing tiles for the hallway

So, when it comes to choosing tiles for the hallway, make sure you choose tiles that will be practical, and well suited to your own personal taste. Some popular options include:

  • Victorian checkerboard tiling for period properties
  • wood effect tiling for contemporary properties
  • geometric tiling
  • interesting tiling patterns and layouts
