First impressions really do matter, so make sure you create impact from the start with a warm and welcoming entrance hallway to your home. Floor tilesare a practical choice: patterned tiles, as well as looking beautiful, can also mask the inevitable scuffs and marks from bags, boots and shoes (and muddy paws). Try the classic checkerboard from Odyssey or authentic Victorian floor tile designs. Other flooring options to consider are the mellow tones of honed natural travertine or the high polish of durable porcelain.

Wall coverings need to be robust too. Glossy ceramic tiles are perfect, with any number of colours, formats and styles to choose from: metro shaped, traditional Artworks, modern bricks and even those decorated with Fabergé designs.
