High Style for High-Traffic Areas

Take a look at your home’s foyer or entryway. Check out the hallway. If you have stairs, glance at those as well.

What do you see? Do your home’s high-traffic areas reflect your style? Do they look as clean and attractive as you want them to, or is that wear and tear starting to take its toll on the flooring? If it is, don’t panic: Today we’re talking high style for high-traffic areas, and we’ll give you some ideas for immediately updating these often overlooked spots that have such an impact on your home’s look and feel.

Hardwood Floors: Bruce® Dundee™ Strip
You’ll never regret installing a high-quality hardwood flooring. Clean and classic, hardwood floors can take on any style from sleek sophistication to rustic country and look great doing it. And because high-traffic areas tend to cover less square footage than, for instance, a living room, hardwood flooring—especially Dundee Strip—is more affordable than you may have thought.

Bruce Dundee Strip wood flooring is available in a perfect dozen shades ranging from Dune, a cool white oak, to Espresso, a brown-black stunner that will give a wonderful first impression when visitors step into your home’s entryway and keeps the good looks going strong down the hall or up the stairs. Whichever color you choose, the solid wood Bruce Dundee Strip flooring carries a 50-year residential finish warranty and is significantly harder than oak, making it an excellent choice for standing up to decades of busy family life.

Carpet: Kraus® Motif
Kraus Motif is actually a commercial carpet, and that’s exactly what makes it a good choice for your home. Designed to accommodate heavy foot traffic, this carpet features an attractive but subtle pattern—and it’s as functional as it is beautiful.

Zipperlock® technology gives Kraus Motif carpet a long-lasting tuft that’s highly resistant to unraveling or snagging, which means it looks good for longer even with more wear and tear. Adding to the durability is Motif’s Stain Proof – No Exceptions™ warranty, and Motif’s wear warranty guarantees it’s going to withstand most things daily life can throw at it, whether on the stairs, in the hall, or in your home’s entryway.

Kraus Motif is available in 10 stylish colors. This winter, we like the light neutral Cottonwood and the cool steel-gray Maritime, but whatever your style, you’ll find a Motif to fit.
