5 Great Flooring Choices for Foyers & Mudrooms



Floors typically take a considerable amount of abuse, especially in high-traffic areas like the foyer and mudroom. If you’re planning a home remodeling project this season, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Schaumburg, the premier interior remodeling contractor in the area, shares some of the best flooring options you can have installed in your home’s entryway.

1.Ceramic & Porcelain Tile –These are two of the most popular flooring choices available today and for good reason! Ceramic and porcelain tiles are not only cost-effective, they also deliver great resistance to moisture, grime and muck. They are durable enough that they won’t display signs of wear and tear. 

As for aesthetics, ceramic and porcelain tiles come in a full range of colors and finishes. Some options even emulate the look of wood planks and granite. This makes matching them to your home’s overall decor easier. If you’ve decided on ceramic and porcelain tiling, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Schaumburg offers many options.

2. Beach Pebble Tile – For homes with a nautical theme, you might want to get beach pebble floor tiles for your foyer. The colorful stones, while smooth, still provide a little grip to prevent wet feet or shoes from slipping. 

3. Polished Concrete Floor – Sometimes, the floor with the simplest look can make the biggest difference. This is the case with polished concrete flooring. Polished concrete floors are incredibly durable and cost-effective to install. They are also no problem to clean. Any imperfections, such as small cracks in the surface, only enhance their look. 

4. Classic Slate Tiles – If you want to improve the look and functionality of your entryway–and improve your home’s value at the same time–consider slate floor tiles. They are available in a range of natural colors like gray, black, brown and red. Plus, they come in several different shapes that can create an interesting pattern. Slate floor tiles are designed to be durable and can easily handle a significant amount of traffic over the years. 

5. Hardwood Flooring – When talking about premium floor materials, you can never go wrong with traditional hardwood flooring. Hardwood adds warmth and natural beauty, making it a classic favorite among many homeowners. Following installation, hardwood floors will need several coats of waterproof sealer to protect against potential damage.
