Thanks for your question. The flooring is a simple commercial grade vinyl composition tile (vct). Armstrong is one of the major manufacturers of this product. The tiles are 12" square. The client picked two colors and they were laid in the diagonal checkerboard pattern.

The material above the bench is painted wood panels. The cabinet shop made the bench, cubbies, brackets and paneling. Thanks for the question.

I'm interested in the width and depth of the bench (I'm looking for a solution for a coat-bay area which is only 40cm x 120-150cm) floor space).

Clean and open, probably more conducive to the space we actually will have (more of a pass-through mudroom, with door ways on either end. Maybe half the bench could have a lift-top for storage underneath, and the other half remain open for shoes?
