Victorian Hallway Ideas in London: The Traditional, the Modern, the Large and the Narrow

Victorian houses were built between the period of 1837 and 1901 when Queen Victoria was on the throne. Some people, including the Victorian Society, take 'Victorian Architecture' to include Edwardian as well, which brings this time period up to 1910. House building significantly increased in the Victorian era, leaving a legacy of solidly-built homes across London. We discussed how you could increase the SQ FT of West London Victorian properties (if you missed it, read our blog on Side-return, rear & wrap-around extensions), now let's take a look on one of their defining features and how to form it to your style and make out the most of it.


Victorian houses come in different shapes and sizes, from grand homes to narrow townhouses. If you are blessed with a larger property, you have more space to decorate and form it to your own style. Difficulties come when you have to work with dark and narrow space, especially when it comes to the hallway. We've gathered some examples on how to do-up your Victorian-style hallway.


Stay Traditional


If you are a fan of Victorian features, we advise to emphases those characteristics. Victorian tiles are an original feature, that is not only elegant but will add value to your London property. Besides the tiles, Victorian front doors are also classy and unique with timber joinery and stained glass windows.
