When it comes to finding a floor that’s easy to clean and stain-resistant, carpet isn’t generally what comes to mind. However, innovative advances have transformed this product in recent years so it’s now one of the best kid friendly flooring options available. Today’s carpets come in highly durable and even waterproof selections that don’t retain odors or stain easily. They’re also luxuriously soft, cushioned in case of falls, and come in the latest design trends. Additionally, waterproof and wool carpet fibers are hypoallergenic and help promote better indoor air quality.
Many modern consumers don’t realize how much vinyl has changed over the years. It’s now one of the most beautiful and heavy lifting flooring products around. High-resolution imagery and advanced embossing techniques have given luxury vinyl a more realistic look than ever before. It now mirrors more expensive and high-maintenance options like traditional hardwood and natural tile while also offering the thickest wear layer in the industry. In addition to being incredibly tough, luxury vinyl is also hypoallergenic, and uses a padded core layer to provide extra cushioning and warmth underfoot.
While hardwood is susceptible to spills and can be difficult to clean and maintain, there are engineered and waterproof hardwood products that work well in family homes. Both utilize a cross-layered construction that can withstand heavy foot traffic, moisture, and accidents without cupping, cracking, or warping. Additionally, they feature a heavy-duty finish that makes them stain-resistant and easy to clean.
Cork is also a popular kid-friendly flooring choice because it’s soft and warm underfoot, while also looking beautiful and unique. Like hardwood, it’s naturally hypoallergenic and easy to clean up dust and debris. Additionally, cork contains a waxy resin that repels bacteria and insects, and it’s considered an ecologically sustainable flooring product.
