Are you struggling to redecorate a bedroom or family room?

Do you worry about what types of floors will stand up to the wear and tear that comes with having children in the house?

Don’t waste your money on flooring that isn’t going to last long and will need to be replaced in a short amount of time.

Here is a breakdown of several popular flooring choices to help you get the best value for your money.


Carpet is one of the least expensive flooring options. The installation is relatively easy given that it can be layered over the existing floor. If you want to use carpet for your child’s bedroom or playroom, dense, thick carpeting is the best choice. Thick carpet doesn’t get crushed as easily, which helps dirt and spills stay on top instead of getting soaked in through to the floor.


Obviously hardwood flooring isn’t as comfortable as carpet, but some types of hardwood flooring is made to be scratch-resistant and is very durable, especially flooring that comes with protective coating.


Cork is a great option for kids with allergies or who might have sensitive skin. Cork is hypoallergenic and is soft enough to act as a shock absorber, which is especially great for toddlers. Cork also absorbs a lot of noise! As an added bonus, this type of flooring is just as durable as hardwood and bamboo. Looking for More?
