A home's foyerThanks to the upcoming rainy season, foyers and entryways take a lot of beating. The entryway to your home makes that first impression and therefore needs to add a wow effect. However, lots of people are uncertain about how to decorate an entryway or foyer. While it needs to be floored with durable and resistant materials, it also needs to be stylish and elegant at the same time. Irrespective of whether you choose porcelain, limestone or marble to decorate your entryway and foyer, ensure that it is easy and clean and looks great as well. Here are some of the most durable and aesthetic materials that we carry at our Anaheim tile store.


Contrary to popular belief, porcelain tiles are among the most durable materials out there. Porcelain is suitable for even a high traffic entryway. One of the best qualities of porcelain is that it looks like stone — but isn’t. It is also easy to clean. Porcelain can be easily swept and mopped up without a fuss.


This material is considered natural stone and is extremely popular in foyers and entryways. Various eye catching, natural wonders are marked by limestone. Limestone contains rustic charm and versatility, which makes it one of the most sought after flooring options to date. It can transform even the most worn out floors to that “wow” effect. Durability and ease of cleaning make it ideal for foyers, entryways and even bathroom floors.


Marble is another great material used in homes for centuries. It is a part of the natural stone family and is classic. Aside from its beautiful colors, marble is flexible enough to be used on walls and floors. It is also naturally translucent which exudes a glow when exposed to light. Natural stone like marble, is not chemically processed, so it is also environmentally friendly.


Travertine is freeze and thaw compatible, meaning it won’t likely be damaged during the winter and spring. It also has a non-slip surface that makes it perfect for pool areas where water is likely to be splashed and people will be walking around. They’re even heat-resistant, meaning they won’t get scorching hot in the summer months when your bare feet are walking around on the pool deck.
