A mudroom is often one of the busiest areas of any home, making it essential that it’s hardwearing yet easy to keep clean. Spillages, smudging and leaks may occur here, making durable tiles key. In this article, we present tile ideas perfect for creating both practical and aesthetically pleasing mudrooms.
Mudroom floor tile should be durable enough to withstand constant foot traffic as well as any bags, coats, hats or umbrellas that might get dropped into it. Therefore, selecting tiles with slip-resistant surfaces such as slate, sandstone or granite is ideal. Furthermore, ensure it is suitable for freeze-thaw conditions in areas that experience extreme climate variations.
Porcelain tile is one of the best choices for creating an inviting mudroom floor, being both resistant to moisture and staining, and offering an array of colors, textures and glazes that mimic stone’s naturally robust qualities. Additionally, this material comes in different styles that could suit your mudroom’s needs perfectly!
To give your mudroom an individual touch, consider opting for mosaic tiles. Comprised of small pieces of glass, ceramic or stone assembled in decorative patterns to add texture and visual interest, mosaic tile provides both texture and visual interest while being moisture-resistant and easy to maintain.
As well as being hardwearing, an ideal mudroom tile should also be visually appealing; after all, this high-traffic space can become easily disorganized over time. There are numerous options that meet both criteria – subway tiles and hexagons are two such examples that meet both criteria perfectly.
Be mindful that natural stone used for mudroom flooring requires frequent resealing to protect it from moisture absorption and staining, so be sure to follow manufacturer specifications or seek advice from your supplier when sealing it.
Nothing embodies rustic chic like a natural-looking mudroom, and the designers of this bohemian one have done it to perfection. Bianco Carrara and Bardiglio Nuvolato marble floor tiles immediately draw the eye into this space; while natural wood storage console and boho-approved wicker basket tie it all together.
