Do you kick back and relax in your living room as soon as you get home from work? Carpet is the perfect way to keep your home warm and cozy in the middle of a Chicago winter. A plush style will create a luxurious relaxing atmosphere, while frieze still will add comfort to a busy household.

Although it can easily be considered a flooring staple, carpet is not as durable as other flooring options. Our experts at Floor Coverings International Oak Park can help you pick out the perfect carpet style for your living room, so you won’t have to worry about wear and tear.

Do you want to give your living room a timeless, elegant look? Long lasting hardwood floors have been popular in American homes for centuries. Maple hardwood can brighten your living room year-round. The red-hued cherry hardwood can add subtle warmth to your living room.

Hardwood floors have a reputation for being easy to scratch, but that’s not the whole story. Each species of hardwood has a different level of durability, determined by the Janka Hardness Scale. The experts at Floor Coverings International Oak Park can help you navigate this scale and get the perfect hardwood for your home.

Are you on a tight budget? Laminate is one of our favorite wood-look flooring choices. Advancements in technology have given it an incredibly realistic appearance. It is durable and low-maintenance, making it a great option for busy families. Whether your living room is a sleepover hub or the location of an impromptu duel, laminate floor can stand up to the challenge.

Although it accurately mimics hardwood, laminate is not as long lasting and cannot be refinished. Still, with easy, regular maintenance, your laminate flooring can stay stunning for years.
