13 hallway carpet ideas for inspiration

How’s your hallway looking? Like it always has? 


If that’s the case, then there’s no time like the present to give it a bit more oomph. Because as much as you may not spend that much time in it, it still deserves to look cherished and loved like the rest of your home.


One of the quickest and most effective ways of transforming your hallway is with some new carpet. Fresh, clean, fluffy carpet that instantly gives the space a homely refurb for half the time, cost and effort.


Like our thinking? We thought you might. Now for the important bit, our hallway carpet ideas to inspire your hallway revamp:


The best carpet for hallways is:

Seeing as the hallway is the first area your guests set eyes on, and that greets you every time you get home, it’s important to make it inviting and welcoming.


Warm, comfortable carpet can immediately help you achieve this vibe, especially if it’s in a pattern or shade that enhances the rest of your hallway décor.


The best carpet for hallways ticks certain boxes. It has to be: durable enough to withstand multiple pairs of feet stomping all over it and the right shade and style that shows your hallway off to maximum effect.


Underlay is also a key factor when it comes to enhancing the longevity of your carpet too. That added bit of bounce provides a whole lot of support that helps cushion the wear and tear that your hallway carpet is subjected to day in, day out.

The best colour carpet for stairs and landing

So we’ve covered the type of carpet to look out for, but what about the colour?


Are there certain colours that are better for your stairs and landing? Absolutely.


Dark shades obviously work better from a practical perspective because they hide dirty marks and stains from muddy footprints and other everyday wear and tear. Darker shades of brown, blue, green and grey are popular hallway carpet colours.


However, it’s worth bearing in mind that dark colours do have a tendency to make spaces look smaller, so if your hallway is particularly small, perhaps a pattern print or stripes could be the answer?

5. Venus Silver Carpet – made from 100% polypropylene and suitable for heavy use.


6. Living Cacoa Carpet – made from 100% polypropylene and is bleach cleanable.


7. Living Rhythm Carpet - made from 100% polypropylene and is bleach cleanable.
