Best Flooring for Your Dining Room

So much happens in your dining room. From family meals to after-school snacks and homework, to work from home Zoom calls. That's why it is important to make sure the foundation of your dining room, the flooring, is able to stand up to life's everyday wear and tear while also standing out and inspiring. If you are looking to build your dream home, renovate your existing flooring, or get ready for holiday hosting, we have lined up several of the best flooring types for your dining room. Whether hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl flooring, waterproof hardwood flooring, or laminate flooring is best, it will ultimately come down to your design style, lifestyle, and budget. If you are unsure about what flooring option will work best for you, you can take our Flooring Genius Quiz and get three free samples to see different options in your home. Our flooring specialist can help you learn more about the options outlined in this article and which one will be best for you and your family.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring for Dining Room

Luxury vinyl flooring is known for its gorgeous style and durability which makes it perfect for the dining room. Whether you have small children throwing food on the floor or pets who enjoy running around the dining room table, LVT (luxury vinyl tile) and LVP (luxury vinyl plank) are great water-resistant and scratch-resistant flooring options. There are also waterproof luxury vinyl flooring options available so you don't have to stress when your morning coffee takes a tumble before your Zoom call. When it comes to color trends, lighter-colored luxury vinyl flooring is extremely popular currently because it shows less dirt and dust while also giving a more relaxed, Scandinavian feel. We love the Cracked Greige color in Style by Beauflor (below) in this dining room. Visit our Virtual Showroom to see more color options and styles.

Hardwood Flooring for Dining Room

Hardwood flooring is a beautiful and classic option for the dining room. Hardwood flooring’s warmth and texture help make your dining room inviting and quaint for guests at the holidays and family meals throughout the year. If your dining room is open to the kitchen and other main living areas, hardwood floors are a great option to carry throughout your home. A popular trend currently with hardwood flooring is lighter colored hardwoods that show more of the natural grain. This makes your home feel more casual and is great for active families with children and pets. Hardwood flooring is also extremely durable which is great for hosting family and friends for meals.
