Selecting new flooring for your home is no easy task, especially if you have children! With the constant activity children bring to your home, your floors see a lot of wear and tear. Wondering what flooring options are durable—and safe—enough to keep up with your kids? Let us help!
Choosing kid-friendly flooring can help reduce the amount of time you spend worrying about the safety of your children by minimizing the risk of accidents—and even allergies. To help protect your children from falls, slip resistant flooring is a great option. Foam, cork, carpet and rubber flooring will help reduce the chance of slips and falls for active kids—and adults, too. This flooring can be installed in all areas of your home, but are particularly useful in playrooms, bedrooms and even kitchens.
If your child suffers from allergies, an eco-friendly floor might be your best option. These floors are hypoallergenic, antimicrobial and resistant to household allergens. Cork and bamboo flooring are two renewable and sustainable flooring choices that are excellent options for homes with children. Eco-friendly floors also have low levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which will help reduce your child’s likelihood of developing respiratory illnesses down the road.
When it comes to choosing flooring for your kitchen that is safe and functional, laminate and cork are great options. Laminate flooring is durable and has great impact and indentation resistance. Plus, it’s super easy to keep clean!
