Choosing practical and beautiful living room flooring ideas can make the difference between a cosy space and a cleaning nightmare. Not only can flooring take up a large chunk of your budget, but flooring will hugely impact how you interact with this social space.

From comforting and compact snugs to larger spaces fit for entertaining, researching the types of flooring that suit living rooms, how they are best maintained and how they will fit into the overall design will make all the difference once installed.
