Mudrooms are fantastic rooms in homes. They can help contain the unwanted transfer of outside dirt into the rest of your home. If used properly, your home could thrive; creating less work for you while cleaning. While designing your mudroom, you want to take a good look at the floors. The flooring that you choose will need to meet some important criteria: easy to clean, wipe down, and wash. For more detailed help in choosing the correct flooring, we created a mudroom floors guide for you! Let us take a look at the different things to consider when choosing your mudroom floors:
- Rugs: Rugs are amazing decorative pieces that wrap style and function into one product. They come in an array of different sizes, textures, shapes, and colors while still providing us with a place to wipe our feet. An important thing to consider when choosing a mudroom rug is that most people will be wiping their feet on it. You will want to choose a sturdy, dark color rug for an area like this. Keep in mind: homeowners tend to replace their rugs often due to the amount of moisture and dirt build-up. You will want to choose an affordable rug that you are okay with replacing within the next year.
- Durable, Low-Maintenance Floors: For your overall mudroom flooring, you will want to choose a product that is durable and low-maintenance. You will want to focus on a product that is easy-to-clean for this high traffic area. Flooring options like tile, stone or LVT can work wonders in these types of areas. For more expert knowledge, be sure to ask one of our sales staff for their product recommendations.
- Water-Resistant: Depending on where you live, one day it could be raining and one day it could be snowing. To be ready for all mother nature has to throw at us, we recommend purchasing water-resistant flooring. There is only so much that your mudroom rug can soak up, plus you will need an area to place your shoes. Owning a shoe tray can definitely help reduce the transfer of moisture, but moisture-resistant flooring is your best option.
- Cleaning: You want to choose a product that is easy to clean and wipe down when necessary. The flooring options we listed above (tile, stone or LVT) all have easy-to-clean properties.
