Living Rooms

Flooring Installation - Maryland Flooring - Contract Carpet One

Today, we begin our Maryland Flooring Guide series in your living room, often the first seen room of your home. It’s your sanctuary when you’re without company; it’s where you might kick back with a good book, your favorite TV show, or whatever it is that makes you feel at home.

If you use your living room to entertain guests, the look and feel of the room will set the impression for the look and feel of the rest of your home. Whether your design is contemporary or traditional, elegant or down to earth: your living room design gives a glimpse of how you want your visitors to view your taste.

Because you and/or your guests are usually seated – foot traffic is usually lower in your living room than other portions of your house. This means appearance and style take priority over durability.  Although, you do want your floors to resist stains or at least clean up easily so you can maintain their look.
