Certainly, a living room should always be inviting and available for guests, friends, but also a living room should always be a family room, the gathering place for family members and why not, your pets. It is the room where people meet to socialize, chat and share interests, hobbies and experiences.

And if we talk about relaxation, socializing and entertainment, the design and decoration of this space requires your special attention on creating a style and look, which will represent you and will reveal something from your lifestyle, taste and personality.

Because of its large surface, especially when you have to deal with an open layout concept, an important part of the ambiance of this area is created by the floor. Flooring has an important role in every interior design project regardless of the room style or the type of floor.

However, because it is an architectural element and an integral segment of each room of the house, it is important to choose the floor type in completely concordance with the overall look of your home. There are so many types of floors so choosing the right flooring type for a particular area of your home, especially when that area is your living room, may be a daunting decision. You have to combine the practical aspect with your personal taste, which requires a careful thinking.

In short your living room floor can have a neutral or can be extremely striking, can be natural or can be engineered, can be made from wood or stone (natural), can be made from concrete, marble, ceramic or porcelain, can be integrated in the colors of your home or distinct from the overall look. All are viable solutions but whatever option you choose, you should keep in mind that flooring is the one of the most important elements of your living room.
