I mentioned at the beginning of April that I ordered a new blue ombre rug for our entryway. It finally arrived, and I’m feeling relieved because the bold color is exactly what I wanted to wake up the space. Like many makeover projects, the rug is only the jumping off point. Sometimes new accessories are all you need to refresh a space, but in this case, our entryway design plan requires a whole lot more to create a welcoming first impression.
If all goes well in regards to timeframe and budget, these are the steps I believe we need to take in order to give our entryway an updated look:
Remove the linoleum and replace with tile.
From the moment we moved into this home I have despised the flooring. Not only is it lifting, but the pattern and colors are terrible. I don’t care how beautiful an area rug is, it’s never going to camouflage this ugliness.
Although I haven’t finalized the tile, I’m leaning towards a charcoal slate floor.
