When it comes to hallway flooring, good looks should go hand in hand with fantastic performance. Discover how Avenue Floors delivers just that.

Hallways are often neglected spaces. Usually near the bottom of the list when it comes to decorating, they can be little more than dumping grounds for coats, shoes and wet umbrellas. And yet with only a little care and attention, a drab or dingy hallway can be transformed into an inviting, stylish space that makes visitors feel instantly at home – something that’s particularly important as Christmas approaches.

The beauty of entrance halls is that they don’t have to coordinate with the rest of the home. While open-plan spaces and living rooms that flow into dining rooms need a carefully coordinated scheme for a “pulled together” look, the hallway can be treated as a separate entity when it comes to design. That means you can be as quirky or as brave as you like. This is your chance to experiment with punchy patterned wallpaper, make a real impact with feature flooring, or add pops of colour with bold paint shades. But while décor is important, if you want your hallway to be the ultimate visitor-friendly space, make sure it also features practical items such as coat hooks, a basket or rack for shoes and a small table where guests can leave their belongings.

When it comes to hallway flooring, good looks should go hand in hand with fantastic performance. Avenue vinyl flooring is 100 per cent waterproof and built to withstand grime and the inevitable scuffs and scrapes than result from heavy footfall. The protective Superguard layer that features on most Avenue ranges makes our floors supremely easy to look after – dirt can simply be vacuumed away, while marks can be wiped off with water or a mild detergent. Other benefits? Not only is our flooring naturally comfortable and warm underfoot, it also cuts down on noise, so a full house at Christmas doesn’t have to mean a noisy house.

Whether you’re after boutique-hotel chic, a rustic country look or you want to create a scheme that reflects your personality and is uniquely “you”, we’ve got the flooring to match – at a great price.
