Find Your Living Room Flooring Style

Hardwood flooring is an ageless design choice. Each species has its own character—with color variations, graining, knots, and other unique features that capture nature's beauty. That gives you plenty of options, whether you plan to create a cozy farmhouse look or a modern industrial feel. Vinyl and laminate flooring, available in a multitude of styles and colors, may be a best bet for an eclectic aesthetic. Tile can express a sense of grandeur, a bohemian vibe, or even give a nod to the Provençal countryside. 

If you are going for a more traditional look, tile is always an elegant but practical choice. If your taste is more contemporary or modern, a vinyl floor for your bathroom gives you flexibility to add unique colors and patterns. A water-resistant laminate or engineered wood bathroom flooring ties nicely into a transitional or farmhouse look and will flow well with other wood flooring throughout your space. 

Hardwood Flooring Ideas for Living Rooms

Hardwood flooring adds timeless appeal to your living room. It's beautiful, hardwearing, and compatible with any aesthetic. Well-maintained solid hardwood can last for decades.

Considerations for Your Living Room Flooring

Let us help you in your search for the perfect living room flooring. Start by considering what type of surface will best suit your lifestyle. For active families with children and pets, you may want to keep scuff-resistance or water protection in mind. After all, spills happen! By choosing flooring with resistance to wear and water, you can minimize the risk of any lasting damage. Laminate and vinyl make for high performance flooring options that are still friendly on your wallet. If your main priority is environmental stewardship, look to eco-conscious flooring made from sustainable materials like cork.

Factor your style goals into your decision. Natural hardwood flooring embraces earth tones and neutral colors, while its graining creates a warm and inviting space. If you're going for an eclectic look or a vibrant aesthetic, you can't go wrong with tile, vinyl, or laminate floors in the color, texture, and finish of your choice. We carry wood-look tile, vinyl, and laminate, so you could even have the best of both worlds.

Finally, think about the level of maintenance that you're willing to commit to. Hardwood floors should be swept or vacuumed with a soft attachment regularly, while laminate, vinyl or tile floors can be both swept and wet-mopped. With hardwood you'll need to wipe up any spills with a damp cloth immediately, whereas our waterproof or water-resistant flooring can buy you more time to clean up.

Your living room should be full of life and showcase your personality. Elevate your space and incorporate more style into your home—discover all the possibilities at LL Flooring.
