Everyone loves walking into a home and immediately seeing something that stands out. It’s refreshing to see and triggers and eagerness to want to see the rest of your home. Your entrance foyer is your home’s first impression. Having floors that stand out harbors respect from your visitors and constant compliments about the style you’ve created in your space. Foyers are one of the easiest places in our homes to change too as the square footage is usually limited, meaning you can go all out in this tiny space! Here are some hot trends we’re seeing from homeowners in Alpharetta.
Herringbone and Parquet
Herringbone and parquet are timeless looks that have been around forever and still going strong. Herringbone is a very uniform look that doesn’t change the rest of your home’s style at all–it just accentuates it. Parquet, on the other hand, adds a midcentury element to your space that can be used to give off any number of vibes: elegance and luxury, warmth and comfort, or old-school charm. Your furniture and decor choices get to decide which. Both options are great choices if you want something classic without dipping into styles that may not work for the typical, traditional Georgian home.
Slate is another popular option as of late because of its versatility with surrounding design. Slate tile has many different faces, it could look rusty or oxidized, solid black, or an assortment of different shades. Slate is very durable and easy to clean, doesn’t show its age or dirtiness. The dark color of slate also attracts light, perfect for a foyer with windows.
Porcelain slabs continue to be a hot commodity in entrance foyers. The porcelain look is a very modern and luxurious one, most commonly used in estates and the nicest houses in any given neighborhood. Don’t let this information sway your decision-making though. Using porcelain in your foyer shows you hold a very high standard for your home, and you want to showcase that. The material is durable, easy to maintain and resists moisture, scratches and stains. Porcelain tiles are ideal for high-traffic areas as they are hard-wearing and resistant to impact damage. Porcelain can be purchased in matte or polished finishes depending on the look you want to achieve.
Mosaic tile is for the eccentric and love walking into a work of art everyday
Mosaic tile is an eccentric look that is attracting a wide range of buyers. Young homeowners love walking into what feels like a work of art every day, and experienced homeowners love the popular retro look it conveys. Mosaic tiles are often made up from various materials including glass, stone and ceramic. There are also porcelain mosaics with patterns and designs that look stunning on display in an entrance foyer. If you’re the anti-cookie cutter type and want something that stands out from the crowd, then this might be just what you need!
