Monochrome chic. Simple is best in a narrow hallway. White painted stairs make them appear wider and the grey runner is both practical and elegant. Seek out a slim console - vintage or modern - thats useful and decorative but not space-consuming.
Use Bigger Tiles – will have fewer lines; less lines= bigger room.Keep tiles above 12 inches.Use tiles bigger than 16 inches. White Grout -Reason? the lighter the floor looks, the bigger the room looks. Small lines – small lines in between the tiles. Do not go any larger than a 3/8 inch grout line; best: a 1/8 grout line- clean, easy to do and makes your tile stand out a lot more. Diagonal lines – makes room look bigger; takes people’s sight off walls and on floors.
