Between watching reruns of your favorite television show and decorating for the holidays, you spend a lot of time in your living room. New flooring can completely transform the space, improving the way you use your home. Our experts at Floor Coverings International of Mentor want to help you choose the best flooring for your home. From lifestyle to budget, we have broken down the best living room flooring styles, so you can find the perfect fit for your home.


Looking for a living room floor that is warm and comfortable? Look no further than carpet flooring, which can easily be considered a staple flooring choice across Mentor. A thick pile carpet, like plush, will make it easy to relax in your living room after a long day at work. A textured carpet, like frieze, will add comfort and stand up to the chaos of a busy household. From color to style, our friendly professionals can help you match your carpet to the aesthetic of your home.

With nearly an infinite number of stains and styles, it’s easy to see why so many people love hardwood floors. Our experts can walk you through the Janka Hardness Scale, to help you choose the perfect hardwood style for your home. The red-hued Brazilian cherry is extremely durable and will add warmth to your home. Alternatively, a knotted hickory will add a beautiful design flair to your living room. While hardwood can be expensive, it has a great value over time and will increase the resale value of your home.

If your living room is the site of impromptu pillow forts and abandoned toys, you need a floor that can stand up to the hustle and bustle of a busy household. Laminate is a durable flooring option, perfect for pet-friendly homes and active households. Laminate is also one of the best ways to get a luxury flooring on a budget. At Floor Coverings International of Mentor we stock a wide variety of laminate, so you can get the exact hardwood aesthetic you love, without the high price.

Our favorite eco-friendly flooring style is a great option for any Mentor living room. Bamboo is light and bright, which can help make your living room feel bigger. The subdued grain works well with any décor, but it blends particularly well with minimalist homes. Besides being eco-friendly, bamboo is stain and scratch-resistant, making it a great option for busy households. Easy maintenance will keep your flooring looking beautiful for years to come.
