What’s the most suitable living room flooring?

A living room is a place to spend quality time in, to relax and entertain. It makes sense to install quality flooring in this room, but what’s the best type of flooring to use?

If you want to add luxury to a room, natural wood flooring is perhaps the most suitable choice. Installing solid wood flooring in Cheshire and Wirral homes can add up to 10% to the value of the property, making wood flooring a great investment.

Wood makes a living room feel and look special. Every wood floor is unique – the individual wood grains and knots make a one-of-a-kind pattern. Wood requires a little maintenance, including regular cleaning, and it should be kept moisture free. A well-looked-after wood floor will last for decades.

A less expensive alternative to solid wood is engineered wood, which has a top layer of real wood veneer, making it look identical to solid wood flooring. Engineered wood is easier to lay, so it’s less expensive to install.

Both solid and engineered wood flooring is available in a variety of woods, from rich, dark shades to light oaks. Most prefer the natural wood colour, but wood planks can be stained to change the shade.

Laminate flooring provides the look of wood, but at less cost. The printing technology used for the wood effect on modern laminates makes them look very realistic. Water-resistant laminates are available that are suitable for high-moisture areas, including bathrooms, washrooms and kitchens.

To conclude, there are a variety of flooring types suitable for living rooms, and the choice ultimately comes down to personal taste and the available budget.
