Flooring is important everywhere in the home, but it’s especially critical to get it right when it comes to the entryway. The floors in an entryway can be subjected to a lot of foot traffic. As a result, you want flooring that can handle this and still look beautiful for decades to come. Today, we share some flooring options that are perfect for entryways.
Many homeowners choose wood-look tile to fill their entryway flooring needs. The great thing about wood-look tile is that the style options are endless. Go for a cool grey look, or a simple, bright larger, rectangular tile. The wood-look image gives the tile a warmer tone and creates a welcoming first impression in your home.
Stone flooring is an excellent entryway option. Many homeowners choose to feature a more expensive option in the entryway, since usually the square footage is lower. Go for marble, slate, or granite flooring to really make a statement and wow your guests!
Tile looks great in the entryway and it is easy to keep clean. Simply sweep every few days to keep debris at bay. Ceramic Tile is also great at handling traffic and comes in many styles that mimic the look of natural stone. Larger, rectangular tiles are particularly popular in Albuquerque homes.
Vinyl is the perfect flooring for anyone who wants to minimize the maintenance and upkeep required. With vinyl flooring you will not have to worry about scratching, denting, or scuffing. These tiles or planks are heavy duty and will not damage easily. If you have a larger area to re-floor vinyl will also help you to save on materials.
Solid hardwood flooring is featured in many homes in the entryway and throughout the home. This classic flooring choice isn’t going out of style anytime soon. It’s a great option for making a great first impression in your home. Be sure to use a few rugs to help protect the floor a bit as hardwoods can be scratched and dented when not properly cared for.
