Floor Coverings International Dakota County is dedicated to supplying Apple Valley homeowners the best flooring for their living rooms. As one of the most important rooms in the house, it’s necessary to find flooring that’s both visually appealing and durable. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite choices.
The living room is the perfect place to display beautiful hardwood floors. Hardwood makes a statement, looks great, and is lower-maintenance than carpet. To add a level of comfort to your hardwood, area rugs are a great option.
Since the living room typically sees less traffic than hallways or foyers, you don’t run the risk of damaging your hardwood too soon – just be careful when you’re moving furniture. Hardwood is still a durable flooring choice, and if you want to avoid scratches, go with a harder wood like hickory.
Both solid hardwood and engineered hardwood are great options for a hardwood living room floor, but engineered hardwood is the less expensive option.
Luxury Vinyl Planks
If you want the look of hardwood without the price tag, there are many wood-look alternatives to choose from. Luxury vinyl plank ranks among the most durable and most visually appealing.
Luxury vinyl is a versatile and affordable choice, able to mimic the look and texture of hardwood, stone, tile, and various other materials. Since hardwood creates a fantastic look for the living room, luxury vinyl planks are a great option. The planks’ shape, texture, and design allow them to best match the look of real hardwood.
Luxury vinyl plank is also easy to maintain, resistant to scratching, and more comfortable than hardwood. Luxury vinyl is softer than hardwood, and it stays warmer on cold days.
For the coziest living room, carpet is the way to go. Carpet gives you freedom when picking a color, provides warmth, and creates a comfortable atmosphere.
Nylon is an ideal choice of material. because it’s softer than polyester but more durable than wool. Nylon carpeting also withstands stains and fraying better than other materials, and its resilience reduces flattening from heavy foot traffic and furniture. It’s the perfect choice for a living room that sees a lot of activity.
