If you love the look and easy maintenance of your hardwood flooring, you'll love the addition of cherry, bamboo, oak and others in a smaller version.
Whatever type of entrance rugs and such you choose, be sure they do not have rubber, plastic or vinyl backings. This will damage your finish.
They offer protection from dirt, grit and grime but should be shaken out or vacuumed regularly.
