Living Room Flooring Options
Your main floor living space is a very important area of the house. This is usually where everything happens—LEGO building, parties, late-night snacks, Netflix binges, cat and dog races—you name it! This high-traffic area goes through a lot of use, so above all you want living room flooring that is durable! And if you have an open concept layout, you may also want it to flow seamlessly into the kitchen.
There are a few flooring materials that can help you make your living room the cozy and inviting space you are looking for:
You can never go wrong with hardwood. It’s beautiful, timeless, hypoallergenic and can add something special to any interior. If you are worried about scratches, go with hardwood that has a high score on the hardness scale, and consider a few extra coats of epoxy or other sealant to preserve the surface.
Carpet has been used in living rooms for years, and for good reason. It’s soft under your feet, helps drown the noise and is easy to maintain. However, continuing carpet into the kitchen is generally not a good idea for open floor concepts, so you may need to come up with a transition.
Although tile is naturally cool to the touch, combined with in-floor radiant heating, it can be a wonderful option for your living room. Besides, tile is virtually indestructible when installed and maintained right.
LVT, LVP and VCT vinyl tiles and planks can serve as an affordable alternative to hardwood and natural stone. They look just like the real thing, but are far less demanding in terms of maintenance and won’t break a bank!
Laminate offers the look of hardwood without the expense. Modern laminate has come a long way over the past decade—you will be surprised with the quality and color variety available today!
Finally, polished or stained concrete can serve you well in your living room, kitchen and throughout the main floor. Why cover it if you can turn it into something both beautiful and functional?
