What Floor is Right for the Living Room?

What Floor is Right for the Living Room?In many homes the living room is a common area that includes couches and other comfy seating, often a television, bookshelves and light decor. It is a place to gather with friends and family and a place to unwind after a hard day's work. It's where you put up holiday decorations and nap after big meals. So, with a room that gets used so often and for so many things, it is important that it has the right type of flooring. While it can be largely dependent on your personal style and existing interior decor, we've outlined the pros and cons of certain flooring for the living room.


Yesteryear were the days of obvious laminate. Today, laminate offers many exciting styles that beautifully replicate wood and stone, at prices that are incredibly affordable comparative to the real deal. Laminate is easy to clean and care for, but is more likely to be damaged in heavy traffic.


Tiling in granite, marble or ceramic can make for an absolutely beautiful floor, but also a very cold one. If installing natural stone you may want to consider floor heating. Stone tiling is also hypoallergenic, as it doesn't trap contaminants.


Hardwood flooring is a classic choice for living room areas. With so many types of wood and and colors available, there is sure to be the right look for your dream living room. Wood does take special care though, so be sure to consider the daily chore chart when selecting hardwood floors in the family home.


Another popular choice for many rooms in a home, including the living room, is carpet. There are numerous feels, colors, and styles available that allow for a plethora of options when selecting living room carpet. Carpet remains cozy all year round, but it is prone to stains if the drinks are flowing.
