The living room is often considered the central room in the home, which means that it requires consideration of the style of your home overall. At Frank’s, we have a wide range of flooring solutions to create the perfect living room.

Our living rooms are the busiest and most open spaces in the home, suitable for socialising and gathering with family and friends. Therefore, how often you entertain and whether you have children or pets will heavily influence your decision on what flooring is best suited.

You may require a flooring solution that is durable and can withstand wear and tear. On the other hand, if you have no pets or children running around, something that looks good and requires maintenance might be preferable.

What is the best flooring for living rooms?

At Frank’s, we believe the best flooring for living rooms is a material that sets the stage for your chosen style. From colour to pattern and texture, there are a lot of factors that will influence the ambience of your living room.

Whether you wish to achieve a contemporary look or a traditional style, by choosing the right floor material you can easily create a space that is inviting.

Living room flooring should be hard wearing and able to withstand a relatively regular stream of foot traffic, being one of the busiest rooms in the home. It should also be comfortable and feel warm underfoot and, as a bonus, easy to clean and maintain.

At your local Frank’s store you’ll find many possible flooring options that meet this criteria. We stock a wide range of carpet, hardwood and engineered hardwood flooring, vinyl, LVT and laminate to suit your needs.

Ultimately, it’s all about choosing a floor material that best suits your needs in terms of design, budget and functionality.

Even though carpet has traditionally been a firm favourite for living rooms, hard surface materials on the market today such as wood, LVT and laminate are becoming the preferred choice. This is because they are much easier to clean and maintain and are resistant to stains.

They are also available in a variety of colours, styles, textures and designs to give you unlimited freedom to experiment with living room flooring ideas.
