Foyer, waiting room, entryway, whatever you call it – this part of your home is important for creating the perfect first impression on whomever crosses the threshold, and your flooring plays a critical role in getting that right. No type of decor will shine when what’s beneath it is dilapidated!
The perfect entryway flooring needs more than good looks though. As it occupies the space in which guests and family members remove and store their shoes, it also must put up with quite a bit of battering.
What kinds of flooring have the unique combination of durability and good looks to be part of your dream entryway? A variety of types from E Hardwoods & Flooring, of course!

If nothing but hardwood will do for your entryway, we recommend engineered hardwood flooring. Composed of a particleboard with a thin layer of genuine hardwood across the top, it’s relatively resilient to moisture damage when it’s promptly tended to – always a plus in a spot that gathers mud and slush from shoes. To improve this resilience, make smart use of runner rugs, welcome mats, and shoe cubbies.
As far as looks go, nothing beats the timelessness of real hardwood, and when you shop with E Hardwoods & Flooring you’ve got almost any stain and wood type imaginable at your disposal. Brighten up the space with a gentle gray finish or make a stately statement with a darker look. Your interior design potential is limitless!
