As designers we are often called on to help home owners and businesses make an impression with the first room that visitors will see. Working across, Norfolk, Norwich and  East Anglia we at Chameleon Designs can help with these sometimes tricky spaces as well as the rest of your space.

Your Hard working Hallway sets the scene for the rest of the house, so think of it as a room in it’s own right. It’s the first space guests see when they arrive, and it gets more traffic than other areas of the house – In the 18thcentury, hallways were restful and tranquil, to soothe the weary travellers. Now however, there’s a case to be made for a bold dramatic welcome. You can stamp your personality on it, or reflect the history of the house with a flourish.

There are practicalities to bear in mind when designing your hallway too. Your home is your retreat, so as well as creating a good first impression, consider what you will need in the first 30 seconds of entering your house. Where will you put your keys, hang your coat, or your wet umbrella? It is important to create an entrance that’s as live able as it is glamorous.

So whether your home is blessed with a vast, airy space or something more modest, make sure you give your hard working hallway the attention it deserves.

So wether we can help with this or any other space or the space flow and layout of your home or business please do get in touch
