Between curling up in front of a movie and dozing on a Sunday afternoon, your living room is central to your home. Updating flooring in the room can completely transform the space. If you’re in the market for a new living room floor, you’ve probably wondered what flooring type is right for the space. To help you out, our experts at Floor Coverings International Greenwich have broken down the best living room floors.


A classic choice, hardwood flooring will work magnificently in your Darien home. With careful staining, our experts can help you match wood flooring to your décor. Don’t worry if your décor changes over time, as hardwood floors can be refinished with a new stain.

Besides their beauty, hardwood floors are a great option if you ever plan on selling your home. While laminate flooring can mimic the look of hardwood, it doesn’t add the same value to your home.

To make your new living room feel cozy in the wintertime, we recommend installing an area rug in the space. An area rug will add a layer of comfort and protect the beauty of your new hardwood floors.

If you love the beauty of hardwood, but you want a more sustainable floor in your home, consider installing bamboo flooring. With a regrowth rate of less than five years, bamboo plants are an incredibly eco-friendly flooring option. The light tone and grain of the plank will give your living room a beautiful beach aesthetic.

When kicking back your feet after a long day, we know you want as much comfort as possible. Carpet flooring is a popular option among Darien homeowners who are looking for an added layer of warmth in their living room. For an added layer of luxury, we recommend installing wool carpet in your Darien home. The natural carpet fibers are incredibly soft and insulating. Alternatively, you could opt to install a synthetic carpet like nylon, which is known for its stain-resistant qualities.
