Living Room Flooring Options

Flooring hallwayYour living room flooring has a profound effect on how your home looks and feels. The living room is where your family gathers, where you entertain your guests, and where you relax. The right flooring sets the tone for your home while balancing comfort, durability, and functionality. 

That’s why choosing the best flooring to match your lifestyle is vital. If you have pets or children, you might opt for something that prioritizes durability and easy maintenance in your most-used living spaces. If you want a feeling of luxury, you might go for an option that is both timeless and elegant. If price is an important factor, you want a flooring option that is cost-effective and affordable. 

Among the most popular living room flooring options are vinyl flooring, wood flooring, hardwood flooring, and laminate flooring. Each has unique features as well as benefits and drawbacks. Here’s what you need to know about all three types of flooring. 

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is a widely popular living room flooring choice because it’s among the most versatile and cost-effective flooring materials. Another advantage to vinyl flooring is that it’s water-resistant, which makes it highly attractive to homes with children or pets. Vinyl does not warp or stain easily when it’s exposed to water, allowing it to maintain its aesthetic appeal. 

Additionally, vinyl flooring is relatively low maintenance. Its upkeep is minimal, typically requiring only regular sweeping and occasional mopping. It’s also resistant to scratches, dents, and other normal wear and tear. This durability makes it ideal for a high-traffic area like the kitchen, which often requires more intensive care. 

Homeowners on a budget don’t have to sacrifice looks for cost savings. Living room vinyl flooring can easily be made to look like natural materials, such as wood and stone, but at a much lower cost. And, unlike some natural materials, vinyl has a softer and warmer cushion, which makes it more comfortable to walk on and provides some sound insulation. 

High-quality vinyl can last for many years and maintain its style and durability.

Wood Flooring

When homeowners think of classic flooring, they often think of wood flooring. Wood floors provide a natural warmth to the home, making it feel more welcoming and stylish. Whether your home has a modern or a traditional design, a wood floor is certain to complement the surroundings. 

Flooring manufacturers provide wood flooring in many wood species, stains, and finishes, providing you with a wide range of style options. While a walnut floor provides rich, dark tones, a maple gives a home a more airy feel. 

Like vinyl flooring, wood flooring is highly durable with a lifespan that can last decades. As the flooring wears it develops its own distinct sheen, adding a unique character to your home.

Many wood floors are made from sustainable forests, reclaimed wood, or recycled wood. Because wood is a natural insulator, your living room will maintain a more consistent temperature, which could have a positive impact on your energy costs. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly flooring option, LuxLife vinyl flooring is an excellent choice. It’s GREENGUARD Gold certified due to its low chemical emissions.

Wood is susceptible to scratches and dents, so you may need area rugs in high foot traffic areas and pads under your furniture. Moisture and extreme temperature changes can cause wood to warp, so you must be careful in areas with high humidity. 

Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring is made from hardwood species, such as oak, maple, and cherry wood. This makes the wood denser and more durable than softwoods used in other wood flooring. The hardwood flooring is often made of solid planks and can last for generations if properly cared for. 

With a wide range of wood options, hardwood floors can be matched to your preferences and style. A well-maintained hardwood floor can even increase your home’s value. This may make up for the higher initial cost of a hardwood flooring installation. 

Laminate Flooring

Durability, easy maintenance, and versatility make laminate flooring a popular choice among New England homeowners. Laminate flooring provides the look of hardwood or stone without the initial cost or maintenance. It also provides much of the practicality of vinyl flooring. Many laminate products can be easily snapped together over your existing floor.. 

As with vinyl flooring, laminate products are easy to maintain. Unlike vinyl, however, laminate is less resistant to moisture and can show damage from water spills and other accidents. Laminate also can’t be refinished and doesn’t last as long as other living room flooring options. 

Choosing the Best Living Room Flooring


The best flooring for you depends on your lifestyle and usage, style preferences, budget, maintenance preferences, and whether you want to factor potential resale value and environmental factors into your decision. Whatever your budget or style, there’s a flooring option that works for you.
