Children need flooring that is both soft and durable. Something that will stand up to spills and roughhousing, but provide a soft, comfortable surface for quiet time. This can be a challenge for parents in the Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Deerfield Beach area. The team at Floor Coverings International Boca Raton is here to help you find the best flooring for your child’s bedroom, playroom or any other room in your kid-friendly home.
Carpet seems like the obvious choice for kid-friendly flooring. It’s soft and comfortable, and it will help protect children from injury when they fall. Not all carpet is created equal, however. When carepting a kid’s room, select an option that is naturally stain resistant, such as Berber carpet, or something that has been treated to resist stains.
The carpet fiber is important to many families as well. A natural fiber carpet, such as wool or cotton, can be better for the long-term health of your family. Regardless of the fiber or style, make sure you follow the manufacturers recommendations to air out new carpet and reduce exposure to VOCs.
Cork flooring is a trendy option for kid’s rooms. It’s naturally hypoallergenic, moisture resistant, and resilient. It will provide a soft surface for roughhousing or relaxing, and it is typically easier to clean than carpet. Cork has the additional benefit of being an eco-friendly product. Cork flooring is made from the renewable bark of the cork tree, and this natural material can have a lower impact on the environment than some carpets or other synthetic flooring options.
While the resilient surface is an important benefit of cork flooring, it’s also important to consider potential damage. The surface can be scratched or gouged, so take special care with children’s toys or other activities.
Luxury Vinyl Plank
Luxury vinyl plank flooring is a great way to get the look of hardwood with the durability and moisture resistance you want in a child’s rooms. Vinyl planks are a fraction of the cost of solid hardwood but are almost indistinguishable from the real thing. Unlike sheet vinyl, luxury vinyl in installed in individual planks so you can have the look of high end flooring with a product that will stand up to the wear and tear of active children.
