Get Creative

The entrance hall or foyer provides the ideal opportunity to get creative with floor tiles and mosaics. Whether you’re updating a traditional style home or adding some character to a new style property, the addition of tiled borders, mosaics and artisan tiles can create a real impact in a hallway.

 

Pretty patchworks, patterns and prints create a warm and welcoming feel, making them ideal choices for floors of hallways, entrance porches and foyers. These beautiful Umbris Décor **link to: http://www.tileandbathco.com/tiles/floor-tiles/ceramic-floor-tiles/umbria-décor** ceramic tiles work well in both classic and contemporary settings, while these Fame Gris **link to: http://www.tileandbathco.com/tiles/floor-tiles/ceramic-floor-tiles/fame-gris** ceramic tiles offer a traditional look with a modern twist.

Welcoming Wood

Nothing says ‘home sweet home’ like the inviting feel of real wood floors. Unfortunately, hardwood flooring is not suitable for many style homes, and can be expensive to maintain in heavy traffic areas such as porches and hallways. But if you love the look, and don’t fancy the costly price tag and hassle of the upkeep, then digitally printed wood-effect tiles **link to: http://www.tileandbathco.com/blog/feature/2016/spot-the-difference-the-benefits-of-wood-effect-tiles/ ** is the perfect solution. Harder wearing than their real wood counterparts, wood-effect porcelain and ceramic tiles don’t scratch and mark, won’t fade or discolour over time, and are easy to clean and maintain. This makes them an ideal choice for families, heavy traffic areas in the home, pet owners and anyone looking for a low-maintenance flooring alternative to real wood. For a Scandi style vibe, we love these Helsinki G **link to: http://www.tileandbathco.com/tiles/floor-tiles/porcelain-tiles/helsinki-g** porcelain tiles, while the glossy finish of these Newtron Athrancite **link to: http://www.tileandbathco.com/newtron-anthracite** porcelain tiles will add a real luxury feel to your entrance hall.

Think Practical

As one of the heaviest footfall areas of the home, the entrance hall or porch will see a lot of traffic in its lifetime, which is why it’s important to consider floor tiles that will withstand the daily wear and tear of its nature. As the place that transitions from the outside in, the entrance hall provides the ideal opportunity to anchor the growing trend for natural looks and finishes. To get the look, these Nu Traviso Stone **link to: http://www.tileandbathco.com/tiles/floor-tiles/porcelain-tiles/nu-travino-stone ** porcelain tiles and these Basilica Crema **link to: http://www.tileandbathco.com/tiles/floor-tiles/porcelain-tiles/basilica-crema** tiles boast a natural stone effect, minus the price tag and maintenance of real natural stone tiles.
