Mudroom floor, connected to kitchen
We are going to remodel the breakfast room - more like a continuation of our kitchen, which we did 5 yrs ago. It is also the entry to the house (back door), so we use it all the time.
Most of the floor is going to be wood (oak like the kitchen) but I want to put in a durable mudroom floor for the small entry vestibule, which will extend few feet into the breakfast room, in front of the benches where people will change their boots etc.
What is the durability of slate, other stone tiles, etc., for the floor? Any other materials I should be considering? Any issues with putting 2 different kinds of flooring in this room?
