kid friendly flooring types

Let's face it, children can be messy. Stumbling tots as well as sloppy adolescents produce messes, spills and general clutter that can be very difficult to clean up. While nothing can be done to stop every accident from happening, a kid–friendly floor can help minimize short– and long–term damage, prolong the life of your floors, prevent injuries and reduce the amount of time you spend cleaning.

Installing kids flooring is not always easier than trying to kid–proof existing surfaces, but it can make your living space safer for your children. Floors that are slippery when wet or damp, such as stone and tile, can be unforgiving on children in the event of a fall. In this case you may want to check out non slip flooring, such as cork and rubber, as these may help keep your children safe.

In this section you'll find pros and cons on the most common floor types as they apply to children. These include bamboo, carpet, concrete, cork, hardwood, laminate, linoleum, stone, ceramic tile, and vinyl.
