A Hall Renovation Mood Board

Wednesday, March 9

Console Table: Wayfair | Flooring: Moduleo Sierra Oak
I didn't have any major plans for the hall renovation, however, the more I thought about it the more I realised it is the entrance to our home and the first thing you see when you walk in so I don't want it to be boring. So our plans have evolved from plain white walls and simple oak flooring. 

We've not had any flooring since the day we moved in but apart from that it's not a space that annoyed me... until a few weeks ago when we started ripping it apart! We stripped the wall paper, removed the skirtings and the facings round the doors so we could get a professional in to do some plastering. 

New plaster board has now been fitted to the ceiling and cracks filled in the walls. We've also painted everything white (as a base coat this might change) so we are ready to move onto more exciting decorating. We love the luxury vinyl flooring from Moduleo in the bathroom so we've picked another style for the hall - instead of a more plain look we've gone for this more eye catching herringbone. I can't wait to have it fitted in a few months and see it transform the space. 

Rug: Ruggable | Mirror: Ikea | Door: LPD Doors
As well as new skirting boards in the hall (and throughout the house) we want to replace the doors. It's going to be an expensive job but should be worth it. The current doors are so dark and old fashioned looking in an already gloomy hallway. We've seen the Vancouver doors from LPD doors and they'd improve the space and make everything lighter. 

Finally, some exciting finishing touches. We want a console table and mirror opposite the front door - I like this table in the photo above from Wayfair but we're not 100% sure soon. We also saw this mirror in Ikea on Monday - it's huge and only £50 so it almost came home with us but in the end we decided to wait until we found a table so they compliment each other. 

The other thing I fancy is a Ruggable rug - I'd seen them on social media but before getting a dog I hadn't really considered one but now I think a runner would be perfect for the hall. Soften up the space and when it gets dirty then just chuck it into the washing machine. The only thing I will have to check it the bottom pad is okay on the LVT flooring. 

The remaining corner we want to make into a cosy space for the puppy - his crate goes here during the night so I just want it to feel like it belongs there with the potential to just have his bed when he grows up. Hopefully we can add some practical elements too but I can't quite imagine them yet.

What do you think about the ideas for the hall? Is there any really great interior designs you think would inspire me?
