Raising kids is a tough job, and if you have young children, it is necessary to have the type of floor that can withstand all the thrills and spills that young families will inevitably put it through.
However, when it comes to raising a young family, durability isn’t the only concern. It is important to choose a flooring option that will also be safe and comfortable. This means staying away from any kind of gaps, crevices, or particularly hard and slippery surfaces, at least until the munchkins get a little bit older.
You Don’t Have to Compromise on Your Flooring
Having kids does not mean that you have to give up on having beautiful and easy to maintain floors. And with tons of eco-friendly options available, there is even more to be excited about when it comes to choosing the right kind of floor for your family.
Here are some of the most attractive, safe, and durable flooring options for families with children.
For those who like the look and feel of a classic hardwood, oak is one of the best options for families.
Not only is it a beautiful wood, but it is incredibly durable and capable of withstanding almost anything your children can think of putting it through.
Vinyl is a tried, tested, and true flooring solution for any young family.
Not only can it withstand moisture and spills better than any other option out there, but it is also incredibly durable and low maintenance.
Not only does a cork floor give any room a bright, clean, and understated punch, but it is also incredibly durable and impact resistant.
This means that cork is not only fashionable, beautiful, and eco-friendly, but it’s a great choice for families with lots of little feet bouncing around since cork provides an especially flexible surface that can bounce back from almost anything.
4. Area Rugs
If your children have already done a number on your existing surfaces, but you are not yet ready to take on a big flooring project, area rugs can be a great solution.
Not only are rugs attractive and stylish, but they are comfortable, versatile, and soft.
Carpet is one of the best options hands-down for families dealing with young children.
Not only does it provide a level of comfort and safety that other types of flooring can’t compete with, but it is also cost-efficient, neutralizes sound, and provides a natural form of insulation. Not to mention that it is incredibly easy to maintain.
With so many green, and partially recycled carpet options available these days, it is a choice that you can feel good about – in your soul and on your sole!
