Top Living Room Flooring Options, learn the pros and cons of wood, stone, concrete and carpet, along with buying tips. Before a room can be decorated, furnished or even just moved into, it must have a substantial floor. When chosen with care, the best flooring options will set the stage for many years of good looks, durability and comfort. When selecting flooring, a little homework goes a long way. You will want to take into account the style of the house, the budget, the amount of wear-and-tear you anticipate it will need to withstand, and the look and feel you want to create. From standard wood flooring to stone or concrete, living room flooring options are plentiful and offer a range of pros and cons. Architect Bob Wetmore of Cornerstone Architects says that as styles evolve, so do our options. "With the developing soft contemporary movement, we frequently design stained concrete floors or a clean-engineered wood floor," he says. "We also enjoy using cork floors that are very resilient to walk on and warm on the feet during the winter." One of the benefits of working with a trusted architect or contractor is that he or she can quickly help you narrow down your options. But whether you are going it alone or enlisting in the services of a professional, experts agree upon one thing: Do not make a decision based on a small sample in a showroom. See how it looks on a grander scale. "Compare samples side by side and to try to see the product in an actual installation," says architect Robert Tuthill. "Seeing a floor as a complete composite is sometimes much different than how it appears as a small sample." And then, of course, once you have chosen the materials, proper installation is key. A firm, stable, substantial floor should feel that way. In living rooms in particular, a decorative rug will likely anchor the furnishings, but the flooring materials are the foundation that the rest of the room depends upon. Here are the pros and cons for the most popular living room flooring options. When remodeling an older home, good fortune sometime smiles upon those brave enough to pull back a corner of a tattered old carpet: There might be pristine hardwoods underneath, which often can be sanded, stained and sealed. With plenty of choices in stain color, the floor and the room as a whole can feel remarkably refreshed, polished and updated with minimal effort and expense. No large crews of workers, no shopping for expensive materials. It can be incredibly satisfying to do so much with so little. But what if your hardwood floors have damage or need to be extended? A practical and economical option is to match them. "Make use of what you have," advises architect Carol Sundstrom. "If you already have hardwood, consider matching and refinishing. I prefer large continuous areas of one material rather than a different flooring material in each room, which reminds me of a patchwork quilt." And if you need to start from scratch, you can broaden your horizons a bit. There are hardwood options that can be fitted into your space while bringing a sense of age and patina. "We love the warmth of reclaimed heart-pine flooring," says Jane Frederick, of Frederick + Frederick Architects. "It is sustainable because it is reused from old beams removed from buildings being torn down. The boards are wide — 8 inches to 12 inches — and the patina is wonderful." Though wall-to-wall carpeting in bedrooms is still a popular choice, in living rooms, not so much. "I generally never use wall-to-wall carpet in high-traffic or public areas unless my client specifically asks for it," says designer Rachel Oliver. "It is usually less expensive than hardwoods and many styles are easy to keep clean, but it can soak up odors and liquids in high-traffic areas and may stain." Oliver, however, has a trick for taking advantage of the cozy feel that wall-to-wall carpeting provides: In addition to the rugs she likes to scatter about a space, she sometimes has carpeting cut and bound to the exact size needed for a room — it provides all the comfort of carpeting but can be easily removed and cleaned or swapped out. As for getting the size just right, Oliver recommends floating a large carpet 12 to 24 inches from the perimeter of the room. "It offers a uniform, clean look," she says. "The right rug can offer a high-end look in any home, no matter the price," she says. "There are even many indoor/outdoor rugs that are soft enough for babies and kids to play on. Natural jute, seagrass and sisal rugs are hugely popular, but can be harsh on bare feet." "Stone has a strong, tailored feel that tends to work in public spaces," says Robert Tuthill. Stone flooring is not only desirable for certain architectural styles (think grand Old World rooms or spacious modern expanses), it can be entirely appropriate and elegant and, in some cases, relatively locally sourced. With its natural tones and unique characteristics formed eons ago under the surface of the earth, stone flooring can be a sophisticated, one-of-a-kind and very durable option. It can also be one of the more costly options. Using natural stone, such as marble, slate, travertine or limestone, will require careful installation. Cracking, chipping and staining can be some of the pitfalls if the area is not carefully prepped, depending on the type of stone used. Remember, stone flooring will be cool in warm climates and downright chilly in cold climates. Minimalism and the appeal of industrial-chic options make the use of concrete a surprisingly popular option for indoor living spaces, where concrete flooring has moved beyond the garage and into the house. Painting, staining, scoring and polishing — just a few of the options available — enable an existing concrete slab to be transformed rather dramatically while also fairly cost-effectively. These floors can withstand just about anything, but the reverse is also true: Not much can withstand them. If you drop something on a concrete floor, chances are it will suffer. There is no give in this material, but in living rooms, where we are not often on our feet, it might not be such a concern. Also, "concrete floors, by nature, reflect sound," says Bob Wetmore, who advises that the placement of rugs and sound-absorbing materials such as drapery and furniture should be carefully considered. "But the pros for concrete floors are their durability and practicality. Using the right sealers, they generally only require a damp mop to clean." Whether you choose the warmth and patina of hardwoods, the elegance of stone, the modernity of concrete, or another type of floor that speaks to you and the architecture of your home, weigh the pros and cons and get expert advice. And in the end, if you make a choice you regret, throw a rug over it. Chances are, you were going to do that anyway.

Yellow adds optimism to your home, prompting feelings of happiness in all who enter. Interior designer Lisa Teague, designer of Quiet Home Paints, says most people know their color preferences — they just do not know that they do. "It‘s an intuitive process," she says. "My job is to explore with my clients their reactions to color. Do they lean toward clean colors or do they like a little earthiness?" Green represents renewal and lends a calming feel to a room. You can identify these preferences on your own. Experts advise pulling inspiration from a variety of sources. Collect photos of rooms that appeal to you. Find inspiration in a piece of artwork or fabric where you can already see how the color relationships play out. And don‘t forget to look inside your closet. Is there a scarf, a blouse, a wrap or a tie that you gravitate to again and again? Changing how you think about color can give you the confidence to make bold decisions. Designer Andrea Brooks says she approached the design of her own living room by starting with her long-time favorite color. "I’ve always loved pink," she says. "I know I feel my best and most confident when Iam wearing pink, and because of that, I was not afraid to bring it into my own living room." If you long for serenity, using the color gray in your home decor is a great place to start. But Brooks did not just pick just one pink, and she didn‘t count on it to do all the work: "By layering different shades of pink and layering in different textures through fabric, the pink reads as a neutral," she says of the room where she entertains friends or works on design projects. "It gets my creative juices flowing. It‘s an instant pick-me-up." If you want a color that encourages your family and friends to slow down and relax, brown can be the solution to your problem.

Brooks‘ careful approach to color combining and textural layering speaks to the interplay of all the painted surfaces, the fabrics, the wooden furniture, the accessories and the art that sets a good room apart. Some designers even take the wall color (or a paler version of it) into surprising territory. "Nobody wants to notice a big white geometric shape [the ceiling] when entering a room," says Lisa Teague. "I often carry my wall color up and over the ceiling so that you see the color rather than the shape of the wall. And of course, there are some architectural features that one wants to enhance. Color is a great tool for doing so." Reds, oranges, lime green and turquoise tend to bring excitement and stimulation to a space. Whites and pale blues and greens tend to soften it, expand it and give it a restful feel. Grays and blacks bring moodiness and drama. So choose with care. The palette you choose for your living room could excite you enough to make you want to throw open your doors with enthusiasm - or sigh with relief at such a heavenly respite from the outside world.
