Ellen Says:-----My living room floor is solid concrete and although that is alright, I always envy my sister Reynas living room flooring. She has some Heart Pine flooring over the whole thing and it is a big step up from what I have. One of the nicest things about having a finished floor like she does is that it isn't freezing cold to walk on. My concrete floor is cold and hard which make using shoes highly desirable. With her floor, she can walk in it barefoot and have it feel comfortable.
Wood flooring is a great option for living room that are not susceptible to water or excessive humidity. Of course there are options where you can make your wood flooring water resistant, but that increases the overall cost of the flooring. Wood flooring can be hard wood or soft wood. As for the flooring styles, you can install parquet squares, planks or strip flooring according to your choice. The wood flooring makes your living room easy to vacuum or sweep. Wood flooring gives a place a warm and cozy look, however it can be a bit slippery when wet or even when dry. The wood flooring is considered to be quite durable and requires re-finishing or maintenance after around five years or so.
