While many homeowners favor natural flooring materials like hardwood, clay-based ceramic, and natural stone, most choose synthetic materials like carpet, laminate, and luxury vinyl.

Each floor covering would work well in your living room, and you might also want to consider adding sisal, seagrass, jute, or synthetic rug to enhance the room decor. Shop at The Floor 4U, your local Mokena, Illinois, flooring store, to find a large variety of all types of flooring.


Your new floors will be comfortable and warm underfoot if you choose carpet flooring, and if you opt for a solution-dyed brand, the carpet will not fade.

In addition, many manufacturers advise you to spot-clean the carpet with a mild bleach solution. That's because the color is added first during manufacturing, so the color goes through the fabric.


Laminate is a multiple-layer plank and tile floor covering that mimics wood and tile new floors. Standard and waterproof brands are available, but it's essential to remember that waterproof brands typically repel water for no more than about one day.

In addition, laminate flooring fits together at the edges, so a floating floor with no attachment to the subfloor can be constructed.

Luxury vinyl

The best multiple-layer luxury vinyl planks and tiles are 100 percent waterproof and have a thick surface layer to protect the wood or tile image layer from abrasion and stains.

These versatile new floors can be installed anywhere in the home since they are available in three designs: floating floor, glue-down, or loose lay, which butts together to form semi-permanent new floors.
