So what can you do to improve the first impression guests get when they step through your front door?
Start with the floors.
Entryway Floors: To Rug, or Not to Rug
In an entryway, it’s important to set furniture off a rug if you choose to have one. Doing otherwise could make it feel cramped and crowded.
If you want a big rug that takes up most of the floor space, keep in mind that it will make your entryway feel more like a room, not an entrance; if that’s not what you want, a runner with a border is good.
Finding the Right Rug
You’ll need a rug that’s durable and sturdy, because the entryway is one of the most-trafficked areas in your home. It needs to be flat enough that the door can open over it, too.
Painting Your Floor Instead
It’s not easy to pull off a painted floor, but if you choose to do it, you can stencil a pattern or stripes in place to add some style.
