Finding a scheme that ticks the boxes for hall, stairs and landing ideas can be a tough nut to crack. These spaces, while connected, actually have different requirements so finding a universal style to unify them takes time and patience. 

Hallways, staircases and landings are crucial to get right as they're circulation spaces we travel through to get anywhere else in the house. Hallway ideas must be welcoming to guests and provide storage, staircases need to be suited for high-traffic, and the perfect landing ideally needs to feel light and spacious.
