2019 Entryway Tile Design Trends

Tile is an ideal choice for an entryway because it’s fashionable, sturdy and easy to clean. Make a smart decision and protect your home with materials like porcelain, ceramic and slate. Grey continues to be a popular color for home decor—soften the look with a grey wood-look tile that incorporates softer tones like taupe and beige that add warmth. Want to add an elegant feel? Use a combination of stone-look ceramic or porcelain for durability and real marble to elevate the whole space. If you want to enhance a neutral color, consider choosing a geometric pattern. Whether your space is a sprawling foyer or a small entryway, investing in the right tile design can add some flair that transforms your room.

Entryway Floors

Your entryway is a high-traffic area that sees a lot of comings and goings, so it’s important to put some thought into your flooring decision. A durable material like tile can stand up to abusive weather conditions that track rain, snow and mud into your home. Protect your space by putting down reliable, low-maintenance flooring that you can clean by simply sweeping and mopping. Not only does tile offer practical convenience, but the variety of styles, textures and colors mean that you’re able to customize a look for your one-of-a-kind room. Our experienced associates at The Tile Shop can help you transform your entryway into a bright spot for your home or business.

Large-Format Tile

Large-format tiles are a huge trend in entryways, becoming an effective way to make the most of your space, whether large or small. Bigger tiles have a widening effect that opens up the room and enhances the size of your entryway. Expand your foyer with rectangular tiles that elongate your room and give the impression of even more space. Larger tiles mean there’s less grout to clean and the installation process goes quicker—meaning your DIY project is even more doable.
