We mention how multi-leveled choosing your flooring can be between the pricing, the style, the design, the type; the possibilities are somewhat endless. Add to that a layer of concern when it comes to your children, and it can become nearly impossible to choose the best kind of flooring. Therefore, we have seasoned professionals to help reduce your stress, and slowly walk you through the process to select the best flooring for your needs! So, should you choose vinyl flooring if you have a house full of children (or child for that matter)?
Although there are many kid-friendly flooring options available, vinyl holds up the best, and is the easiest to clean. It’s ideal for families and comes with a variety of design and performance features. Today’s vinyl is water resistant and contains an additional clear top layer that keeps those spills from penetrating (meaning no permanent damage). So, what other benefits to vinyl floors have?
- Vinyl flooring holds up to scratches, marks from sketches, push toys, doesn’t stain, and as we mentioned doesn’t warp from spills. It’s level of duration is quite remarkable.
- Vinyl floors are eco-friendly and healthier than other flooring options. Dust doesn’t stay long and is visible; just wipe with a cloth!
- If a portion of the flooring has been damaged beyond repair, that portion can be replaced without damaging the rest of the flooring. It can also be polished or stained to match the rest of the floor. Yet another reason it’s a great option for those with children!
- Finally, vinyl is budget friendly and costs much less than other flooring option when it comes to installation.
Let’s say you already have flooring you want to keep, and only want to update flooring in one room or area. You’d like the two floors to complement one another when they meet, right? It’s easy to do with vinyl flooring! If you have hardwood flooring that will meet the vinyl, you can choose a vinyl that is close in color to the existing flooring to make it seem more seamless and fluid (the vinyl can be stained to match exactly as well). Or, if you have carpet and need the vinyl to complement the carpeting, simply choose a vinyl style that matches best with your carpet.
