Usually, your living room is the area where people get together. In some homes, the living area serves as a formal reception room while in others, it is treated like a family room. It is the face of your house and so, it should reflect your personality, taste, and social status. Wood flooring is a good option for the living area. You can also think of laying carpet tiles or ceramic floor tiles in the living area. Be it any kind of flooring, the tiles should be of muted colors and not appear very glossy.
