How to Successfully Integrate Seating into the Hallway
Seating in the hallway is worth considering. A practical detail that also adds style to the space, it can be hard to visualise what kind of seating will work, especially when space is tight.
Try the traditional
Sometimes, the best solutions are the simplest ones and when it comes to hallway seating (and storage), the bench is a longstanding addition. If it works in your hallway, why not stick with it?
Choose a bench that comes complete with storage space, drawers or cubes for shoes and boots so that you get even more from it.
Try the fitted options
The hallway space and dimensions vary from one property to another and with so much going on in the space, off-the-shelf storage and seating just may not fit or look right.
The solution is to consider bespoke fitted hallway furniture. As well as adding superior storage solutions, it makes the best use of the space available.
Seating can be incorporated as part of the design. With drawer space beneath the seat, plump for upholstered seating, complete with pretty scatter cushions and throw to give the space a homely feel.
Try a window seat
If you have the gift of a hallway window, a window seat in the area adds a stylish note of interest. Simple in design and concept, to store items, simply lift the seat. Opt for an upholstered top and you could spend some time enjoying the space too! Who would have thought the hallway could be enjoyed?!
Try the minimal, streamlined approach
Not all hallway seating options have to be fussy and cluttered, with upholstery and colour. The streamlined, minimal approach adds detail, without the fuss, something that is perfect for both the functional, small hallway and the modern home;
- A stool is a fantastic addition – why stop at one? – in the hallway. Use as an impromptu storage surface for winter scarves and hats. It is also the perfect seating arrangement for pulling boots and shoes on and off.
Frame it with a rug to stop it looking like it has been placed there and forgotten about, something that is also prevented by having more than one stool in the hallway.
- A minimal bench with an industrial appeal is also ideal for the hallway. Shoes and bags can be stored beneath it on the floor and because it is so streamlined and unfussy, it doesn’t crowd the hallway nor your eye as you move through the space.
Try making hallway seating a feature
If you have an under the stairs space, don’t just assume that the only solutions are coat hooks and pegs, along with cubed storage and bench seating.
You can make it the stylish, look-at-me feature of the hallway, perfect for if you want to make a stylish statement from the moment people enter your home.
