Creating a Comfortable and Contemporary Living Room with Luxury Vinyl Plank


Your living room is the heart of your home. It’s where your entire family can come together, whether it's for big celebrations or everyday relaxation. Your living room is a special place, and you may want its design to simultaneously incorporate a variety of attributes, including being comfortable, stylish, cozy, and modern while also being durable and flexible. Thankfully, there’s an affordable Metroflor luxury vinyl plank flooring option for virtually any living room design.

What is Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring?

Luxury vinyl plank flooring (LVP) represents the current cutting-edge in vinyl flooring applications. It accurately mimics the look and feel of natural materials like hardwood while being far more affordable and offering enhanced performance in a variety of categories.

LVP is comprised of many material layers for added performance and durability:

  1. The wear layer is the topmost layer. Made of transparent and durable material, it protects the design layer from daily wear and tear, including scratches, stains, and heavy foot traffic.
  2. The printed design layer contains a high-definition pattern that accurately replicates the nuanced appearance of various materials, such as wood and stone.
  3. The core layers provide stability and structural integrity to the flooring, strengthening the planks and making them resistant to moisture - perfect for areas in the home with high humidity levels.
  4. Finally, some LVP options come with an attached underlayment layer that helps to reduce noise while also enhancing warmth and underfoot comfort.

What Are the Advantages of Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring?

LVP flooring offers more versatility compared to traditional flooring options. Homeowners can find the perfect flooring for their desired living room aesthetic with a wide range of designs, patterns, and colors. Whether you want a rustic oak look, a sleek and modern tile appearance, or a bold and artistic pattern, LVP can accommodate your style. With Metroflor, you can even personalize your flooring choice with our Sketchbox™ Designer tool, to choose the ideal floor plan for your living room.

In addition to its aesthetic value, LVP flooring is highly durable and resistant to stains, scratches, and moisture, making it great for high-traffic areas and homes with pets or children.

Maintaining your LVP is also straightforward. Because its protective wear layer preserves its appearance, it usually only requires regular sweeping, vacuuming and light mopping to keep the floor looking its best.

Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring Ideas for Your Living Room

Natural Wood

LVP flooring offers a stunning alternative to natural wood. It provides the warm and inviting feel of wood flooring with the ability to handle moisture. It’s also far less likely to be damaged by spills or pet accidents and can be more easily cleaned than natural hardwood.


If you prefer a contemporary and sleek look, our luxury vinyl tiles also come in stone or concrete designs. Whether you want a modern gray or a more earthy tone, these designs can create a minimalist ambience while providing the durability, comfort, and affordability of vinyl.


Have the warm and soft appearance of an embossed Belgium weave design that’s easier to clean and maintain. From a cool pearl white linen to a soft denim pattern, LVP and LVT can give your living room a gentle comfort similar to carpet with sturdy resilience, including mold and mildew prevention and scratch shielding.

Metroflor also offers a large collection of colors to match your living room design – anything from a seamless beige to a bold kiwi-green. There are two broad avenues you can travel on your color decision journey:

  • Neutral: Neutral colors, such as shades of gray, beige, and cream, provide a versatile backdrop for any living room decor. These colors create a calm and inviting atmosphere, giving your living room a solid foundation for experimenting with different furniture and accessories while maintaining a contemporary yet cozy feel.
  • Colorful: If you want to make your living room flooring a vibrant statement piece, Metroflor offers LVP in a variety of unique colors. Deep blues, rich reds or even metallic shades can make a bold statement and become the focal point of your space.
