Soon the dog days of summer will melt into invigorating autumn afternoons and in the blink of an eye, the holiday season and all its joys will be upon us. A word to the wise? Take advantage of the months before the seasonal rush of festive fêtes and treat yourself to the gift that keeps giving: new floors from LL Flooring.

LL Flooring offers top selections for all the most popular floor materials: solid hardwood, luxury vinyl plank (LVP), engineered hardwood, waterproof laminate floors and waterproof hybrid resilient flooring. If you want to create a welcoming winter escape for your out-of-town guests with rich solid hardwood floors in the living room, enduring LVP in the kitchen and wood-inspired waterproof flooring in your hall bathroom, we've got you covered. We're sharing our top 35 favorite flooring styles from LL Flooring below to help you prepare for the snowy boots, lively pets and spirited kiddos this holiday season.

Dine in Style With Solid Hardwood Flooring

Treat holiday guests to a fine dining experience with a festive spread on the table and solid hardwood floors underfoot. Natural solid hardwood floors are a sound investment as they are highly sought after by prospective homeowners and design pros and boast an average ROI between 70% and 80%. What's all the buzz about, you ask? Solid hardwood floors exude traditional appeal, are easy to maintain and stand the test of time. LL Flooring offers over 180 striking solid hardwood flooring options to set the stage for a stately holiday season. Choose from 25 unique hardwood species, including popular varieties like white oak, hickory, walnut and acacia. Pro tip: Install solid hardwood flooring in water-free zones like bedrooms, dining rooms and living spaces to maintain the integrity of the hardwood.

Spill-Proof Your Kitchen With Vinyl Plank Flooring

What's a festive holiday fête without a party foul or two? 'Tis the season to replace your well-loved kitchen floors with a waterproof vinyl plank flooring that can keep up with the party — and all the spills, smudges, paw prints and foot traffic that come with it.

Both luxury and rigid vinyl plank (RVP) flooring have a leg up on solid hardwood floors as they withstand water and humidity in high-traffic locales such as bathrooms, mud rooms and kitchens like a champ. Another bonus? LVP and RVP flooring features click-and-lock planks for straightforward DIY installation.

Ready to treat yourself to the gift of stress-free holiday hosting? LL Flooring has over 120 luxury and rigid vinyl plank flooring options in every wood finish imaginable to make your dream kitchen a reality.

Lay Groundwork for Gathering With Engineered Hardwood Flooring

Roll out all the stops to cozy up your family room or basement from the ground up with enviable engineered hardwood flooring. Engineered hardwood is the ideal solution if you have your heart set on solid hardwood floors but want to achieve the look on a lower budget and need additional versatility.

Engineered wood flooring has a dense, high-performance core topped with a layer of genuine hardwood to achieve near-identical results as its solid counterpart. Equally impressive? Engineered hardwood offers more structural stability and resistance to environmental changes so there’s less chance of cupping and buckling in the face of temperature shifts, moisture or humidity. This makes it a perfect option for any level of your home, including the kitchen, basement playrooms or bustling living rooms.

LL Flooring offers engineered hardwood flooring suited to every interior style and design vision. Shop nearly 120 engineered hardwood floor options with six color finishes and your pick of smooth, wire-brushed or distressed texture to bring your design vision into fruition just in time for holiday gatherings.

Warm Up Your Bathroom With Waterproof Laminate Flooring

A cold, tiled bathroom is much less appealing after spending hours alfresco with family and friends on a crisp autumn evening or blustery winter afternoon. Give your guests (and your household) a space to look forward to at the end of the day and revamp your hall bathroom with wood-like waterproof laminate flooring.

Waterproof laminate flooring is budget-friendly, beautiful and built to withstand splashes and commotion of your perky pets and kids without so much as a flinch. Like engineered hardwood and LVP, waterproof laminate flooring is scratch-resistant and comes with a no-fuss click-and-lock installation that you can do yourself. So, what sets it apart, you ask? LL Flooring's laminate planks with AquaSeal technology feature a water-tight locking system that keeps all moisture on the surface so you can soak it up and move on with your holiday festivities. Check out the LL Flooring dream home waterproof laminate floor options, including 29 head-turning wood and stone-inspired designs.

Create Coziness in Your Family Room With Waterproof Hybrid Resilient Flooring

If your loved ones have a knack for spilling their beverages or tracking mud throughout the house, the Duravana waterproof hybrid resilient floors from LL Flooring may be just the fit for your family.

The innovative two-in-one flooring combines waterproof wood-like planks with a DIY waterproof locking installation that keeps splashes and spillage on the surface for easy cleanup. Even better? The kid- and pet-proof hybrid waterproof floors surpass vinyl flooring in scratch and dent resistance and wear. Plus, they're eco-friendly.
