3 Entryway Flooring Styles That Can Make A Big Impact

Posted on

Having a grand entryway in your home is a fun way to welcome people every time they come in through your front door. To help really add to the grandiosity of your entryway, adding a fun style of flooring can bring the whole space to life. Choosing flooring for your home's entryway doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, depending on the style of your home, there are a few options that you may want to consider. 

Traditional Style

If you have a traditional style of home, then one trend to hop on board with is a checkerboard tile pattern made of something like marble. This style has been around for centuries and was seen a lot in Europe. Although it may have fizzled out in the United States over the past few decades, it's starting to take the front row again as a great style and flooring option. If you don't want to have the contrast of bright white and black as part of your checkerboard design, then consider doing something with a little softer colors like a cream and dark grey. 

Farmhouse Style

If you have a farmhouse-style house then you have a variety of different entryway options that can really help you capture the overall vibe. Some fun trends include brick tile or a slate tile. Rather than having your brick or tile laid in a traditional pattern, consider having it laid in a pattern like herringbone or a traditional basketweave. This kind of layout will make your flooring look a little bit more modern, and it will also make the flooring a bit more interesting as well. 

Contemporary or Minimalist

If you have a contemporary or minimalist style of home, then adding an entryway flooring that blends in with the rest of your house may be the way to go. For instance, if you have wood floors throughout your whole main floor, then adding the same wood floors in your entryway can help add a streamlined vibe overall. If you want to add a little bit of interest in your entryway then you can just style it with a rug and console table to help liven the space without having to actually interfere with the floors at all. 

Before you have your entryway flooring laid and set, make sure to bring several samples over to your house to see what it will look like in your home's natural lighting at different times of the day. To learn more about flooring services, reach out to a company like East Penn Hardwood Flooring Corp
