Your Entry into Entryway Flooring

Our entryway floor ideas will keep you up to date on the latest trends, from innovative marble designs and textured to luxury vinyl and tiles.

The foyer is the first impression that every visitor to your home gets. It sets the tone for the rest of your home. As a result, it is also one of the busiest rooms in the house, with more moisture, dirt and debris than any other. Your entryway can look like it jumped off the pages of your favorite decorating magazine with the right flooring in place. Decorating any entryway necessitates the use of the flooring that provides the ideal balance of durability and style. Color, style, daily maintenance and whether or not the flooring requires professional installation all play a role in determining which entryway flooring is best for your home. All of the flooring materials listed below are excellent choices for this frequently used area of the home.

Let’s step into some entryway flooring options. 

Textured Stone

Make stone one of your hallway flooring options. Using any of the various stone flooring types ensures that your entryway floor has the distinct beauty of a natural material. Natural stone can also withstand the foot traffic of a busy family home, making it an excellent choice for entryways and landings. Stone is frequently used by designers in areas such as entryways and mudrooms because it lends a sense of grandeur to a home.

Luxury Vinyl

When you have luxury vinyl planks in the entryway, you never have to worry about tracking in rain, snow or mud. This high-end synthetic wood material has the texture, color and appearance of hardwood while also being completely waterproof. It’s simple to install over a wide range of subfloors, making it ideal for a quick renovation project. This material is easy to cut to size with a sharp utility knife, making it suitable for a do-it-yourself project. Simply click the tiles together and add a new quarter-round to the floor. Luxury vinyl tiles do not require sealing or grouting. Because the material is inexpensive and professional installation is optional, this low-cost flooring option is often much less expensive to install than ceramic tile, natural stone tiles or engineered hardwood.


Neoclassical designs, such as checkerboards and diamond-laid formats with cabochon inserts, work well with marble flooring. This stone is ideal for a timeless floor full of grandeur and can help achieve a classic yet contemporary feel. Tumbled stone is frequently chosen by designers as the most practical stone finish. In busy areas, a softly tumbled, imperfect finish is a forgiving option.

Engineered Hardwood

Engineered hardwood floors have the look of hardwood with added benefits built in. Not only are they less expensive than traditional hardwood, but waterproof engineered hardwood is now available. Check the individual specifications of the engineered hardwood to determine the product’s durability in high-traffic areas of the home, such as the entryway floor.


Patterned flooring and surface design in general are gaining popularity. Entryway floor ideas are no longer an afterthought; they’ve evolved into an essential component of interior design and are now regarded as a key feature. For good reason, we often associate patterned flooring with Victorian-era design; they are famous for their use of refined yet intricate patterns in the home to create an air of timeless luxury. Patterned floors, particularly tiles, are not only forgiving and practical, but they can also visually connect spaces, creating a continuous vista between the interior and exterior.

Ceramic and Porcelain Tile

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are two of the most popular types of flooring. They are not only one of the most cost-effective flooring options, but they are also resistant to moisture, mud, and grime. They are simple to clean and do not easily show signs of wear. When the entryway is part of an open-concept home, the same tiles can be used in the living, dining, and kitchen areas to create a unified look. Because ceramic and porcelain tiles are man-made materials, they are available in a wide variety of colors and finishes. There are even tiles that mimic the appearance of wood planks, granite, and other natural stone varieties. The design’s versatility makes it simple to achieve any overall design style.

Each flooring material provides a diverse range of color and style options. When making final selections, consider the daily use of the space, the number of rooms requiring flooring, and the overall budget of the project. Make sure to account for all installation and supply costs. With new flooring installed, your foyer will be an inviting entryway to the rest of your home.
