Best Flooring for the Living Room

Your living room is easily one of the most important rooms in your house. The flooring that you choose can also set the stage for the look and feel of not just your living room, but your whole home.  It should be inviting and comforting, as well as functional. It tends to be a higher traffic area, so you’ll want flooring that can hold up well to wear and tear. Here are our thoughts on the most popular choices for flooring:



Hardwood is probably the most popular flooring option for your living room because it is elegant and timeless. The color and type of hardwood you choose can make the room either appear elegant and luxurious or casual and rustic. It is, however, harder and colder than carpet. This can be remedied by adding area rugs to create a warm, cozy and beautiful space.



Wall-to-wall carpet in the living room is not as popular as it once was. While it is soft and warm, it does not hold up as well to the high-traffic, and you’ll want to consider a carpet that is stain-resistant and durable.


Luxury Vinyl Flooring

If you have pets or children, luxury vinyl is an excellent option because it can be just as beautiful as real hardwood or tile but is gentler on the budget and can hold up well to the wear and tear. It won’t scratch or dent the same way hardwood will, and it is effortless to clean without any special cleaners needed. Luxury vinyl will also feel softer underfoot than the other hard flooring options.


Other Options

Depending on your budget and needs, there are a variety of other flooring options out there that can work for your living room. Tile is great for areas that tracking in dirt, water, or sand can be an issue. It is very hard and cold, though, which can be a big disadvantage if you have children or other family members that are susceptible to falls. Concrete is another option that has gained some recent popularity. It has many of the same pros and cons as tile.

Laminate is also another option that has gotten popular because it starts at a much lower price-point than hardwood. Laminate, however, does not help your resale value the way hardwood does, and you can’t refinish it if it gets damaged.



The type of flooring that you choose for your living room is going to vary based on your lifestyle, taste, and budget.
