Best Flooring for a Living Room


Reading time: 5 minutes

So, finding the best flooring for a lounge gives you a lot of options. To make your decision easier, we help you go through the different types of flooring available. 


What to look for when you buy living room flooring

There are several things to consider when choosing new flooring for the lounge. However, it’s possible to narrow down the right kind of flooring you need by understanding what kinds of flooring are available, and how it will work in your home. Popular types of flooring for the lounge are:

  • Solid wood flooring – timeless. Looks good in both contemporary and period properties. Incredibly tough.
  • Engineered wood flooring – has a real wood surface for natural colour and grain. More affordable than solid wood.

  • Laminate flooring – laminate is tough, and has a layer of printed detail to look like wood or other patterns and surfaces.
