When it comes to choosing the right kind of flooring material for your entrance corridor, you need to take various things into account. Two of the most important features that you must think about are aesthetics and the resistance of the material. A floor needs to endure a lot of foot fall which means you cannot integrate a fragile material. However, there are many great flooring options that also look wonderful. To give you an idea of few of them here are 17 pictures that we have put together.

1. White marble

White marble can provide a luxurious look to your entrance.

2. A touch of gray

Marble that has a tinge of gray can help compliment the decor of your entrance as well.

3. Floor carpet

If you want to give your entrance a raw appeal then using white cement is an excellent idea.
