Best Flooring for Living Rooms
Creating a beautiful, yet comfortable living room for your family starts with flooring. Although each family is unique, living room flooring should always be durable and easy to maintain, as well as fitting any particular needs of the family. When shopping for living room flooring options, have in mind the way that your family uses this room. If the room is used daily by all members of the family, including children and pets, the qualities need to be different than those that might be appropriate in a formal living room setting that is only used for entertaining guests. Also, you will need to consider any particular concerns your living room may present, such as cold floors, high traffic zones, or potentially dirty areas, such as those surrounding wood burning fireplace hearths or those used as children's play areas or snack areas.
Hardwood, Wood Plank or Engineered Wood - These durable flooring choices provide both beauty and warmth underfoot and allow for the creation of specific usage areas with the addition of colorful area rugs, runners, and mats.
Carpet - a popular choice for living room areas that provides both beautiful color and softness underfoot. Carpeting for living rooms should be stain-resistant and durable.
Concrete, Stone or Tile - These hard surface floors are the ultimate in durability and excellent choices for use with radiant floor heat and in homes with high traffic areas or pets.
Additional flooring options, such as laminate and carpet tiles are also great choices for homes with pets or living rooms that have high traffic areas, such as those with a main entry door.
