Floor your guests with these floor tile designs for your living room
Unlike furniture or décor, the flooring of your house is one thing you aren’t going to even think about changing in a hurry. It’s all the more important to make an informed and tasteful decision while choosing the flooring design of your house. In most modern houses, the flooring of your living room usually starts right at the front door and goes straight into your family room – it is almost like a red carpet into your home.

Your floor isn’t going anywhere, so make it count. There are several options to choose from for living room flooring – from vitrified to ceramic tiles, from faux wood tiles to vinyl. Read on to find the best floor tile designs for modern living rooms.
Vitrified Tiles For Contemporary Designed Living Room
Vitrified tiles are known for their glossy sheen and look elegant in soothing neutral colours like ivory, beige, soft white, pale ash, among others. Stain, moisture and crack resistant and highly durable, these versatile tiles give home the rich feel of marble or granite and yet are easy to maintain. Light coloured vitrified tiles look best in modern, minimalist living rooms and let the décor take centrestage with their understated yet chic azure. Notice how contrasting colour tiles have been used as a border on the edges of this living room to match the play of white and brown in the interiors.

Ceramic And Porcelain Living Room Floor Tiles
Ceramic and porcelain tiles are great options for living room flooring as they are highly durable and easier on the pocket than vitrified tiles. In the right colour, they can bring a chic flair to living rooms. In homes with open plans, these tiles are ideal to seamlessly cover the entire kitchen, dining and living room floor in a single clean colour.
Light coloured tiles can enhance the look of rooms with little natural light and darker coloured tiles give a cozier look to larger areas. Modern living rooms look best with floor tiles in white, beige, sand, etc.

The Wood Effect
If you love the look of hardwood but don’t want the hassle of its maintenance, consider installing wooden ceramic tiles in your living room. Faux wood is the hottest trend in tiles that combines the natural beauty and rustic charm of wood with the durability of tiles.
Tiles can be installed diagonally to walls or in a layered pattern in order to provide a focal point to living rooms.
