Creative entryway flooring ideas

Published: August 25, 2014

Your foyer is the first thing that people see when they walk through your front door. If you’re looking to make an impression consider some of these creative entryway flooring ideas using tile or hardwood found at Indianapolis flooring store, Kermans. 

Why tile or wood flooring for your entryway? 

Both are durable, natural materials that make a statement. Both are also easy to keep clean. Tile and wood floors go with many decor styles, flow easily into other flooring in the house and have the flexibility to really make a statement.

Kermans offers a variety of affordable, high quality tile and hardwood flooring:

Creative entryway flooring ideas

  • A patterned wood floor – perhaps a light and dark checkerboard using maple and walnut hardwood. 
  • A large scale mosaic tile pattern. 
  • Patterned wood inlays can create a border around the foyer. Darker wood inlays can be used in the center of a lighter wood floor to create the impression of an area rug. 
  • Large, 15 inch or bigger, square tiles set in a diamond pattern. This works particularly well with slate or stone tiles. 
  • Mix in mosaics of smaller glass tiles to form a grid with larger stone or ceramic tiles. 
  • Combine both wood and tile – an inlay of tile can give the impression of an area rug in the middle of a wood floor. This works particularly well in a rectangular entryway.
