This resource offers the possibility of making the most of your potential to visually change your entrance hall.
HOW DO YOU MAKE A HALLWAY LOOK BIGGER WITH WALLPAPER?
The most important thing when it comes to determining the spaciousness of a room is the height of the ceiling. With wallpaper you can make small foyers with high ceilings feel more spacious.
Sometimes an excessively high ceiling can create a feeling of endless walls, diminishing the effect of visual expansion. This is where wallpaper comes into play, our recommendation in these cases is to wallpaper the wall that is most visible when you enter the hall or if you prefer you can wallpaper all the walls with a neutral wallpaper so that it is not too heavy.
For low ceilings, a particular type of wallpaper should be used to create the impression of a high ceiling. For this type of hallway, wallpapers with vertical stripes are perfect to achieve the desired results.
HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST WALLPAPER FOR MY ENTRANCE?
The entrance is a very important space that attracts attention directly and it is important to make a good impression on guests visiting our home. The wallpaper used to decorate entrance halls should reflect good taste and should represent us.
Wallpaper patterns are very varied. You can find everything from classic styles to extravagant designs for a more modern audience.
Striped wallpaper patterns are available in different styles. Stripes stand out mainly as a classic pattern that is often found in entrance halls. Striped designs with elements of nature bring movement and not heaviness to the walls.
There is no better welcome than a floral wallpaper to decorate the entrance of your home. Prints with twigs, flowers or natural motifs such as trees bring a lot of warmth to the room. To create a more luxurious and stylish entrance, wallpapers in beige and gold tones are ideal.
Our Blue Paisley wallpaper is perfect for this type of room and adds a classic touch to the décor. The Persian design that was so fashionable in the 70s and has now become a vintage model.
WHAT WALLPAPER SHOULD I USE IF MY ENTRANCE HAS STAIRS?
Entrance halls with stairs get dirty quite regularly, as it is a busy area of the house and prone to people bumping into each other, so it is important that the wallpaper you choose to decorate your entrance hall is washable.
Wallpapers are classified as washable and super washable. At ALF&mabi we have a wide variety of wallpapers in different designs, and they are particularly suitable for entrance halls or hallways, as stains can be easily removed with a damp cloth and neutral soap.
Another aspect to bear in mind is that in entrance halls, furniture is moved around a lot, children play and if we have pets, it is often the favourite place for these furry little ones. That's why we need to make sure that the wallpaper is resistant to minor scratches.
To ensure that your hallway is warm and welcoming, you must take into account the lighting, natural light will always bring out the wallpaper to decorate hallways in a positive way. But always make sure that this light does not fall directly on the wallpaper so that it stays in place and avoids possible discolouration, changes, tears, etc.
