There are a lot of boxes to check when it comes to finding the best flooring for kids. Your floor not only needs to be easy to care for and able to handle the daily deluge of spilled food, messy shoes, and crafts gone awry, but also needs to be safe and hypoallergenic. We carry an excellent range of family-friendly options for every taste, budget, and space, including top choices like carpet, luxury vinyl, and hardwood. No matter what type of surface you choose for your home, we have stylish products that are both beautiful and kid-friendly – so there’s no need to sacrifice aesthetics for function.
Carpet is a soft, cozy, and warm kid-friendly flooring choice. It offers more protection in a fall than hard-surface floors, and it provides extra noise-absorption to promote a quiet and calm environment to live and thrive in. We have stain-resistant and even waterproof carpets that are easy to clean and care for. We also have carpet tiles, which are excellent for playrooms because each carpet square can easily be replaced if it’s stained or damaged. Additionally, both our wool and waterproof collections are hypoallergenic as they inhibit the growth of allergens and mildew.
Our luxury vinyl products gorgeously replicate the appearance of natural wood flooring, tile, and stone without the cost and upkeep. We offer both moisture-resistant and completely waterproof LV selections that are ultra stain-resistant and easy to care for. Luxury vinyl surfaces are inherently hypoallergenic, and we carry low VOC emitting products. You can also choose options that have a cushioned core or antimicrobial cork underlayment, which adds noise control, softness underfoot, and warmth.
Many families love the look of real hardwood in their homes, but worry about stains, moisture-damage, and daily wear and tear ruining their investment. We offer several innovative, genuine hardwood products that are perfect for active families with children and pets. This includes our Hydrotek waterproof hardwood collection, which features premium cuts of maple, hickory, oak, walnut, and more, overlaying a waterproof vinyl sublayer.
We also have engineered hardwood, which is made from laminated layers of 100% natural wood throughout. The layered construction creates structural stability and resists warping when exposed to humidity and spills – and you can choose a stain-fighting, water-repellent finish on top.
