Everything you need to know about Hallway Carpets

The hallway is the first area of your home guests will see, so it’s important to find the right carpet to make a great first impression. Similar to carpets for stairs, hallway carpets have to deal with a lot of footfall and need to withstand dirt being walked in.

Key features of a hallway carpet are:

  • Durability – High traffic areas will require strong and long-lasting carpet.
  • Style – You want to make an impression when people come into your home, make sure your carpet suits your personality and your home’s decor.
  • Underlay – to protect your carpet.
  • Colours –find the right one for your décor.

Best underlay for hallways

Because of the high traffic, underlays are essential when installing carpet in the hallway. It’s important you don’t use the leftover underlay from the last carpet as old underlays are prone to collapse. A collapsed underlay

Underlays offer:

  • Extra comfort
  • Extra insulation
  • Keep your carpet looking better for longer

The thicker the underlay, the longer your carpet will last.

Airstep Diamond 12mm Underlay

This extra-thick underlay ensures your carpet appears thicker and feels softer for longer even after constant use. This is perfect for high traffic areas which could damage cheaper underlays. The thickness also acts as extra insulation and could cut your energy bills by up to 15%!

Carpet vs laminate vs carpet tiles for hallways

Flooring in the hallway comes down to lifestyle and personal preference. Whilst there is no correct answer, both carpet and laminate have pros and cons.

 

Pros

Cons

Carpet

  • Adds a luxurious element
  • Warmer
  • Soft underfoot
  • More choice of colour and style
  • Can get worn quicker
  • Can trap dust
  • Can stain easier

Laminate

  • Easy to clean
  • Allergy free
  • Harder to stain
  • Slipping hazard
  • Colder underfoot
  • Lack of styles
  • Excessive water can seep into the seams between boards, causing swelling

Carpet tiles

  • Easy to install
  • Easy to maintain
  • Durable
  • Easy to replace
  • Generally not considered as aesthetically pleasing as carpet/laminate
  • Tiles can fray at corners creating a disfigured look and a trip hazard

Carpet – is the best choice if you want a luxurious feeling underfoot the moment you walk through the door. It’s also perfect if you want to showcase your beautiful home to guests and make a stunning first impression with a stylish carpet. Carpets also suit pet owners as animals won’t slip or skid as easily as they might on laminate.

Laminate – is ideal for people who want a low maintenance option for their hallway. If you’re a parent or pet owner, laminate is a great choice as it’s easy to clean and is unlikely to stain. However, be conscious of the slippage hazard, especially for those vulnerable to falls.

Carpet tiles – are a hard-wearing floor covering for those who want a quirky look in their hallway. Normally designed for offices, carpet tiles are easy to install and maintain but can fray at the corners.
