What is the Best Vinyl Flooring for your Living Room?

Why choosing the right living room LVP is important

Your living room is one of the most central and important rooms in your home. It’s where you unwind after a long day, where you host guests, and where you bond with your family. So make sure it has the tough, stylish flooring it deserves – at an affordable price.

Luxury vinyl flooring is one of the most popular flooring styles thanks to its unique ability to imitate classic hard surfaces like tile and hardwood. Vinyl floors are also exceptionally durable, waterproof, and affordable compared to other hard surfaces.

And unlike hard surface floors, luxury vinyl offers longevity that isn’t compromised by water damage, warping, and scratching. All the beauty and benefits of hardwood without a high-maintenance long-term relationship.

Take a look at some of our favorite vinyl floors from top brands!

Renaissance SPC – Bethony Oak | Dolphin Carpet & Tile

Renaissance SPC – Bethony Oak

If you’re looking for a luxury vinyl floor that captures all the beauty of classic hardwoods, check out Bethony Oak from the Renaissance SPC collection. Bethony Oak embraces dark shades without being moody or monochrome, showing off a full range of browns and beiges in between its darker segments.

This is ideal for homes with more of a traditional interior design. Perfect for a timeless, orderly space with lots of wood, regal furniture, and dark, warm tones.

Its dark color and simulated grains also work well for contemporary spaces with light-colored furniture and exposed metal. This creates the kind of contrast that’s so typical of contemporary styles.

Unearthed Beauty – Basilisk | Dolphin Carpet & Tile

Unearthed Beauty – Basilisk

You can find luxury vinyl floors matching almost any hardwood style on the market, but don’t let that limit you. Vinyl floors based on tile floors are just as beautiful and diverse, giving you endless options.

Basilisk from the Unearthed Beauty collection is just one example of a stunning luxury vinyl floor that looks just like real tile. Imitating the appearance of natural stone makes Unearthed Beauty a great choice for living rooms in a variety of styles.

While this collection is decidedly modern, Basilisk lends itself to a wide variety of other styles. An industrial style with urban chic vibes would benefit from these vinyl floors, especially if you’ve already incorporated exposed brick and dark metal into your look.

Alternatively, you can go in a more glamorous direction. Velvet, rose gold, and glass will go a long way to add depth and contrast to Basilisk’s intricate veining.

Cape Loop – Gothic Arch | Dolphin Carpet & Tile

Cape Loop – Gothic Arch

Gothic Arch from the Cape Loop collection is a muted, metallic tile pattern with endless stylistic flexibility. Many homeowners look at greys as simple, neutral colors, but Gothic Arch’s rich veins and sudden contrast make it anything but neutral.

Faint hints of blue make it good for a sea inspired living room, complementing sky-blue and white on the furniture and walls, rattan accent pieces like baskets, and soft, leisurely décor. If you want your living room to feel like a beach house, this is your perfect floor.

But being grey makes it flexible enough for any style. Whether your look is modern or traditional, orderly or eclectic, Gothic Arch is distinctive enough to make an impression but beautiful enough to suit any living room.
