The dining room is one of the most important rooms in your household. It’s a space you spend a ton of time in, which means it has to withstand years of wear and tear from countless family gatherings and so much more. For this and many other reasons, you’ll want a flooring option that meets your design and lifestyle needs – one that is durable for years to come. Here are some of the best dining room flooring options that are available.
- Solid hardwood is a popular choice among homeowners thanks to its durability and diversity of colors and styles. Wood varieties include oak, birch, beech, pine, cherry, fir, bamboo and more. Hardwood works well in spaces like living and dining rooms, but it’s also great for bedrooms. Plus, it will last for decades with the proper care.
- Engineered wood blends the easy installation of laminate floors with the durability of real hardwood flooring. This flooring option is available in as many styles as there are species of hardwood. Some of the most popular choices include oak, hickory, maple and bamboo. In addition to working well in virtually any space in your home, engineered wood floors are also easy to install and maintain.
- Laminate flooring is another versatile option with many designs to choose from, as it simulates the look of all kinds of natural hardwood materials. One benefit of laminate flooring is that it is easy to maintain and care for, and it’s an excellent value for the price point. This option is great for spaces prone to spills, like the dining room and kitchen.
- Wall-to-wall carpet includes varieties of wool, nylon, acrylic, polyester and olefin. Wool carpet has a natural look but tends to be higher in price. Nylon carpet is a durable, less expensive material that naturally resists staining, wear and mildew. Olefin is the perfect carpet to use in high traffic, commercial settings, due to its strength and water resistance.
- Ceramic tile, like many of the flooring options we’ve discussed, is available in assortments of types, sizes, colors, and patterns. To make the space your own, use accent colors, mosaics and unique tile and stone designs with grout.
