Having children in the home can call for many needed changes: childproof cabinets, special locks, and more. However, many overlook flooring and its importance within the home of a family. At Floor Coverings International of Frisco, we want to help you find the best flooring type for your family’s needs. Here is our guide to family-friendly flooring:
Carpet – Many parents fear carpet, knowing that one juice box spill could be the end of the new carpet era. Fear not, because almost all carpet flooring today is stain resistant, as long as spills are cleaned up promptly. And of course, because the material is soft, your child won’t get hurt if they take a tumble.
Cork – This material is growing in popularity and it can be a perfect fit for those with children. It’s hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, and durable, a very kid-friendly combination. It’s relatively soft and cushy, like carpet, but has the easy cleanup appeal of hardwood.
Hardwood – Just because you’ve added little ones to the family doesn’t mean you have to give up your hardwood flooring dreams. Putting area rugs and other carpeting in high traffic areas reduces scratches and maintains your flooring investment.
Vinyl – If hardwood is the look you’re trying to achieve, but back to school shopping and gymnastics lessons have your wallet stretched tight, vinyl wood flooring can give you the best of both worlds: appearance and affordability. Just like hardwoods, vinyl floors pair wonderfully with area rugs which will help decrease wear and tear.
