How to create a rustic themed hallway: Design tips

rustic hallway

Your hallway can really set the tone for the rest of your home, and a rustic hallway theme that’s stylish and inviting will make your guests feel welcome as soon as they step through the door.

Using solid oak hallway furniture not only offers a homely vibe, but is convenient for storage, too. From hallway units to console tables and shoe storage, we provide tips on how to make the most of your hallway and give the space a charming, rustic twist.

The window into your home

Hallways can quickly become home to life’s day to day mess of coats, shoes and bags. A carefully chosen hallway unit is the perfect solution. The Kemble hallway unit is made from solid oak selected for its superior, rustic grain pattern, complemented by the painted cream finish.

As well as ample space to store items for your family and guests, this beautiful piece of furniture doubles up as a rustic hallway bench, with a cosy check-pattern seat. The top shelf can be used for extra storage or somewhere to place trinkets and ornaments. A wicker basket is perfect for storing things like spare keys, and looks smart while also keeping your hallway clutter free.

For an industrial spin on the rustic theme, the Brooklyn oak and metal console table makes a stylish statement and can really give your hallway the wow-factor. Its two drawers are ideal for storing important documents and clutter, while the top and bottom shelf can be used to place lamps, plants, or trinkets.

A space to reflect

A mirror is an essential accessory for your hallway and can help bounce light around giving the illusion of more space. Consider hanging one on a wall that’s opposite from a window to catch the natural light.

The Original Rustic wall mirror is perfect for that last-minute spot check before you leave the house, promising to add personality to your space with its beautiful oak frame.

The finer details

Ornaments and accessories allow you to add character into your hallway. Lamps and framed photographs can give your hallway a cosy, welcoming appeal, while a brightly coloured rug is a great way to give the room a pop of colour.

The Kyoto Lamp is a stylish light, with its enchanting combination of dark blue glass and brushed nickel, which looks great against oak furniture.

For those that love to travel, the Columbus wall clock makes for a beautifully apt addition to your hallway, with vintage Roman numerals and aged world-map clock face. Continue the travel theme with some photos and trinkets from your favourite destinations and you’ll have something to smile about every time you walk through the door.

With so many rustic hallway ideas to explore, it’s a theme that can easily be adapted to almost any home and allows you to let your personality shine.
