Entryway Flooring Essentials
When it comes to Entryway design essentials we always suggest designing with durable, quality products. Waterproof flooring is almost always suggested. Entryways track dirt and grime from the outside so it's essential to choose a flooring product that has an easy clean-up.
Hardwood Flooring is a classic design choice, it gives the impression of a fresh and clean house. The main and only downside of hardwood flooring is that it is sensitive to dirt, scratches, and water damage if exposed to too much water. The good news is these issues are easy to combat with a few clever tips and tricks.
Hardwood with a low gloss or textured finish will hide dirt and scratches more easily and still provides so much warmth in a room.
Area rugs can also protect your wood floors and add pops of color to your entryway.
Entryway Tile Floor Design Ideas
Porcelain tile is stylish and durable. Tile can not only replicate the classic look of hardwood but it's also waterproof too! We have a wide array of wood-look tile options that can transform your entryway. Lighter wood-look styles open up your entryway and make it feel brighter and airier.
For a more modern style, natural wood planks give the perfect rustic feel.
Tile is also an opportunity to play around with different tile patterns! Pattern tile is a great flooring option for those who want a more vintage aesthetic or anyone who wants to create a unique space.
Stone Look Vinyl Flooring
The number one rule in design is never to count vinyl flooring out! Stone-look vinyl flooring embodies all the natural beauty of real stone with superior durability. Vinyl tile is waterproof, crackproof, and indentation-proof. We love how lux they make an entryway look and how low maintenance it is.
