What Type of Floor to Have for Mudroom Furniture

Mudroom furniture is typically made of heavy wood or metal. Therefore, when choosing the best flooring to complement this furniture there are several things to consider. Do not install carpet in your mudroom. Instead, select ceramic tile, linoleum, hardwood, or laminate flooring systems that are durable surfaces for this high traffic area. Consider the following pros and cons of each flooring type.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile can be very effective in a mudroom. It is easy to wash and will match any furniture you choose for your mudroom. However, you will want to consider the grout you use when installing ceramic tile. White or light colored grout will quickly become stained in a mudroom.


Linoleum is also very effective in a mudroom. This floor covering is easy to clean, stands up to wet conditions and will not stain easily. The downside of linoleum is that it can tear or scuff if sharp objects are ran across the surface or if black soles are worn on the floor.

Laminate Wood Flooring

Laminate wood flooring is very easy to sweep when you want to remove dried up mud and dirt. Laminate wood floors lend a sense of style to any room. Be aware that many laminate flooring products should not be used in conditions that are constantly wet. Before making this purchase check to see if the floor will stand up to wet or moist conditions.
