The dining room functions differently for different people. For some, it’s a place for daily family meals and homework. For others, it’s a room that sees most of its action during holidays or dinner parties. Dropped food, spilled drinks, and heavy chairs are inevitable no matter the purpose, meaning both style and durability is a must.

For a classic and timeless look in a traditional dining room, hardwood flooring is the best option. Finding the perfect hue that works best in any room is easy to do.
SLATE FLOOR MOUNTAIN STYLE
This flooring definitely adds character to this room; it gives it such an exciting feel. You’re curious on what it is and how it blends so well with this room, even though it’s a bold choice, it honestly was a good one.

RUSTIC LAMINATED FLOOR

Carpet can also be used elegantly in a dining room as the primary flooring. Better yet, certain brands of wall-to-wall carpeting are specially made to resist stains and moisture.
Colorful and Oriental rugs are popular choices, and can add even more elegance to a traditional space. Rugs can be paired with any of the flooring listed to help complete the look of a dining room.
Cork flooring is another interesting choice for a dining room. It’s durable but softer underfoot than hardwood , it has quite a unique look and is harder to blend with the rest of your home decor. Stylistically it either suits your tastes or it doesn’t.
CONCRETE FILLED WITH RESIN
Holes and wear and tear on existing or covered-up concrete slabs can contribute to the final look of a room. An amber-colored resin product was used to fill those holes before polishing. It adds a real point of interest to the finished floor.
Ceramic flooring is extremely tough, and the tiles are difficult to crack. A quality installation can last for hundreds of years if the floor is well-maintained.

The style effect of travertine is that it has the unique power of natural stone but also maintains a reserved dignity that comes from the soft palette of colors in its spectrum.
Unlike many other rooms in the home, the dining room has fewer style elements so the floor has the biggest opportunity to really influence the design. But with such high-traffic during busy holidays and events, it’s important to consider floors that are easy to clean spills and stains and can withstand the wear and tear.
