All About

"Install a stone floor in the entry and have it open onto wood floors," says interior designer Nana Kersh Winters of Schooler-Kellogg & Company in Dallas, Tex. "If not a floor change, then have a beautiful rug in front of your door and layer it on top of carpet if that's your only option."

Another idea is to hand-paint or stencil a design around the perimeter or in the center of a wood floor, applying several layers of varnish to protect the finish.
