Comfort, functionality and aesthetic appeal are all key features when it comes to decorating the space within your home’s living area. The type of flooring you invest in adds to the living experience you will have in this space and is a determining factor that can make a house genuinely feel like a home.
There is no hard and fast rule as to which type of flooring will best suit certain living areas, which is why you need the help of a professional before you make your final decision. At Floor Trader, a division of Top Carpets and Floors, our expertise lies in helping people figure out what type of floor will best suit each room. To help make the decision process easier, we have chosen the top 3 types of floors that perform exceptionally well in living areas.
The Classic Carpet
Carpets have always been a welcome addition to any home. Carpets come in an endless array of colours, textures and styles, so there will be a suitable option, no matter the room. The reason why carpets are so prevalent in spaces such as living rooms and bedrooms is because of the rich depth and warmth they add to any room. There are also two ways that carpets benefit the living room area when it comes to sound. On the one hand, it reduces noise, but on the other hand, it also improves the sound quality when you’re watching TV, thereby making the home theatre experience so much greater in general.
Lovely Laminate Flooring
Laminate flooring has been a top choice for many homeowners since its development in Sweden in the 1970s. Coated in a strong external layer and resin, laminate flooring is exceedingly durable, doesn’t fade in sunlight and proves to be scratch and stain resistant. Moreover, it’s a flooring solution that is easy to clean and stays looking beautiful long after its installation.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl planks (LVP) and luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are similar in appearance to laminate flooring, but there are a few critical differences. Luxury vinyl flooring, for example, is made primarily from PVC Vinyl, whereas laminate flooring is made from resin and fibreboard materials. Luxury vinyl flooring is highly suitable to areas of the home where water is used, such as the kitchen and bathroom, because water damage is less likely than carpets for example. Luxury vinyl flooring withstands high foot traffic very well too. Lastly, if you want floors that resemble wood, luxury vinyl flooring is your best option. The added bonus is that it’s much more cost-effective than real hardwood floors.
