Living on the coast certainly has it perks. Weekends on the boat, limitless fishing and the freshest seafood you’ll find, just to name a few! But it also has its downsides. Tacking in the beach, unloading beach bags filled with sand and beach towels full of salt water. Don’t let your flooring hold you back from taking advantage of The Crystal Coast with your family! Our pick for the best floor covering options for your beach home are below.


Ceramic or porcelain tile is an excellent choice for your beach home because of its durability, maintenance and design options. Tile flooring is extremely tough and the tiles are difficult to crack. A quality installation can last for 10-20 years or longer, if we maintained! Tile flooring is also easy to maintain. Dirt, liquids and stains rest on the surface, allowing you to easily wipe or mop them away! Tile is the most expensive flooring on our list, but tile floor can add long-term value to your property making it well worth the investment.

Luxury Vinyl Plank

Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) is a vinyl flooring that mimics the appearance of natural materials such as wood or stone and is an excellent choice for beach homes. It’s its high durability and scratch-resistance holds up against kids, dogs and more. LVT is a water resistant flooring, which helps you bring the natural beauty of hardwood and stone to any room in your home – even bathrooms and basements! LVP is a budget friendly material priced higher than vinyl and lower than tile.


Vinyl flooring is a durable, easy to clean and cost-effective option for every beach house. It has excellent water protection and is generally the least expensive flooring. It is water resistant, comfortable under your feet and reduces noise. It’s the least expensive option on our list and easy to maintain!
