Spacious or cozy, narrow or wide; the entry to your home is important for several reasons. It is the first impression your home makes on visitors as well as where you start your day and your first stop when you come home. Despite this, these small spaces are often some of last ones to get "done" when remodeling and updating. It doesn't need to be this way as simple revamp can create a lasting impression and hardwood is a great way to get started.
Hardwood floors: A great choice for foyers
The versatility of hardwood floors mean they can work in any space. For home that already have wood floors throughout, using the same flooring for your entrance creates a sense of continuity and harmony.
If you want to create a dramatic entry you can choose from a wide range of designs, patterns, colors and plank widths to create an entrance floor that transitions one space to another.
Stone & Medallions make a real difference
Whether you are combining wood and stone or wood and a medallion, your imagination is the only limit. “Mixed media” is very popular in foyer floors and we are seeing more designs featuring wood floors with medallions or stone woven together to create a unique design.
Combine style with utility
Design experts will tell you to create an effective entryway you want to combine comfort and style with utility. In most cases this means creating an inviting atmosphere by incorporating as much storage as the space can allow while staying within your overall design plan. Units that combine seating, cubbies, baskets, or hooks are especially practical. Beautiful wood storage for shoes, keys, hats, scarves, and bags with a hardwood foyer floor can make a strong statement when combined with a hardwood floor.
The entryway to your home should be welcoming and introduce your visitors to the design and atmosphere of your home. Even though there are countless interior design styles to choose from today, hardwood definitely needs to be on your list.
