Choose the right floor for your living room

The living room is just a room for every day, and for weekends as well. Besides the bedroom, we spend most of our time in the living room. Floors in living rooms should not only handle everyday challenges, but also be attractive and representative when we have guests.

There is a large selection of parquet designs to choose from. There are many advantages of parquet compared with solid wood. Besides being substantially simpler to install, the parquet is more durable and easier to clean. Parquet floors can handle the challenges from both a rambunctious family and socialites – at the same time that you can still enjoy having a beautiful wood floor. It is also an excellent choice of flooring if you want to have floor heating in the living room.

Create illusions using the floor

Get a small living room to look larger than it is using strip parquet. Make an already large living room feel even larger with broad, long planks. Create a white, light and fresh room with light wood. Give the living room a rustic feel with dark oak that has a brushed surface where aged edges, cracked branches and saw patterns peak out. Parquet opens up many alternatives – everything from classic oak to white ash.

Laminate floors claim their place in the best room

If you know that your living room floor will be subjected to many considerable strains or if you want to test something other than wood, laminate flooring is an excellent alternative. Today, it can be hard to see the difference between a wood floor and laminate. Development has undeniably gone forward with authentic décor, bevelling and surface textures. Just like with parquet, the planks of the laminate flooring are available in different designs – so even laminate is excellently suited to creating illusions. With laminate, you can also get the floor to look like concrete and slate.
