If you’re part of a busy family, choosing flooring for your home can be tricky. You need floors that can handle the daily wear and tear delivered by children and pets. However, just because you need something heavy duty doesn’t mean you’re looking to sacrifice aesthetic appeal. The best floors are those that are durable, easy to maintain, and beautiful.
Here we’ll be exploring three types of flooring that are perfect for busy homes—namely carpet tiles, cork flooring, and bamboo flooring. Each is different, but common among all three is easy maintenance and lasting beauty. We encourage you to read on, and to consider one for your Boca Raton home!
Carpet tiles are similar to traditional broadloom carpet in that they can be made from a variety of different materials. They’re very popular within the commercial sphere because of their durability and ease of repair.
In the context of a busy home, carpet tiles are great for basements or children’s playrooms because they hide dirt and dust, brace falls, and can be repaired piece-by-piece.
Cork flooring is another great option for busy families. It’s made from the bark of cork oak trees and is known for being hypoallergenic and extremely durable. Its natural color variation hides scrapes and scuffs, and it can be easily wiped, mopped, or vacuumed.
Perhaps more than anything, the hypoallergenic quality of cork flooring is a great relief for busy families. Cork is almost completely impenetrable and resists mold, mildew, and dust. Whether you have family members that suffer from allergies currently, or want to brace for the potential development of allergies in the future, cork is a great option.
Similar to cork flooring, bamboo flooring is a natural hardwood alternative. Bamboo is just as durable as traditional hardwood and available in a variety of styles and colors. It can be easily cleaned with a mild soap and a mop.
We should mention that the installation of bamboo flooring is one way to tremendously limit your family’s exposure to man-made chemicals. This is a huge plus, especially in consideration of the long-term health of your little ones.
