What’s the best type of flooring for a dining room?

When it comes to choosing the right flooring material for your dining room, there are a lot of factors to consider. Besides making sure the floor meshes well with the rest of your home, you should also consider factors like durability. Because the room will likely get high barefoot traffic, a comfortable floor is nice to have. You may also want to consider ease of cleaning, since eating can lead to spills and other messes.

Of all the flooring options, there are a few that work particularly well for dining rooms. Ultimately, it comes down to which option best fits the flooring needs of your dining room.

Best dining room floor materials

  • Engineered hardwood — Engineered hardwood is an affordable and effective alternative to standard hardwood. Engineered hardwood consists of a top wear layer of real hardwood, and comes in multiple different cores and finish coats. Species of wood, wear layer thickness, core thickness and finish coats all vary from brand to brand. You still get the beautiful look of natural hardwood flooring with the added durability. This material is resistant to scuffing, which is nice in a room where chairs might be moved out from the table often. It is also easy to clean and resilient to moisture.

  • Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) — LVP is a durable and low-maintenance option for your dining room. This material is water resistant, working well for spaces where spills might happen. Luxury vinyl is available in a wide range of colors and patterns, so you can choose a floor to match your dining room walls and decor.

  • Tile — Tile flooring comes in different materials and colors. Some tile materials are well suited for dining rooms, being extremely durable and smooth to the touch. Tile can be a good choice if you want to match other tile flooring in your home, or if you want the unique and striking appearance that tile floors offer.

When choosing the best flooring for your dining room, consider your budget and lifestyle. All of these options can make your dining room a beautiful and comfortable place, so you can decide which best transforms your dining room into the space you want it to be.
