When it comes to rooms in the home, often the living room is one of the most central and public spaces. Although it may not receive the same level of foot traffic as entrances to your home or even the kitchen, the living room still experiences plenty of wear and tear.

That’s why choosing vinyl for living rooms is a fantastic way to combat your flooring becoming damaged and worn sooner than you might like.

Sometimes finding flooring that is stylish and affordable yet durable and long lasting can be a challenge. However, vinyl is a great choice all-round.

The durability ensures that floors are resistant to stains and spills and easy to clean and maintain, which makes vinyl well-suited to busy family households with children or pets.

What’s more, vinyl is also comfortable and quiet underfoot and fairly affordable compared to other flooring options. Depending on your taste, you may have to pay a little extra but flooring is an investment that will last in your home for years to come.

At Frank’s, our collection of vinyl displays a wide range of designs, textures, patterns and colours to give you the freedom to create your living rooms of dreams. Pop down to your local store to see what we’ve got in stock!

What are the benefits of vinyl flooring for living rooms?

Let’s discuss the many advantages of installing vinyl in your living room at home.


Vinyl flooring is renowned for its durability. It is resistant to stains, scratches and moisture and can withstand heavy furniture. You never have to worry about guests spilling food or drink because with some simple cleaning the problem can be resolved easily!

This type of flooring is particularly ideal for high traffic areas in the home and spaces that may receive rougher treatment, such as entrances and walkways. 

Easy to clean

That’s right, vinyl flooring is super low maintenance! Simply sweep or wipe down your flooring with a mop dipped in warm water and neutral detergent (after ringing it out first) and that’s all you will require to keep your flooring look brand new.

Comfortable underfoot

Vinyl roll and LVT both have amazing thermal properties to add a feeling of comfort and warmth to living rooms. Therefore you never have to worry about flooring feeling cold in winter months.

Vinyl flooring is easy to install 

Vinyl flooring usually comes with a simple roll-out or click installation system, which makes it one of the easiest flooring types to install. So, if you feel like doing a bit of DIY then it shouldn’t be too tricky to get the hang of.

However, if you would prefer one of our experienced Frank’s fitters to take the job, just let us know in-store and we will sort everything out.


Compared to other flooring types which may not last as long in a busy household, vinyl flooring is relatively inexpensive. Hardwood flooring or ceramic tiles have a much higher price point and don’t offer the same benefits of easy maintenance and water resistance.
