Which flooring is best for my kids?

The various answers are far and wide. It all depends on the age of the children we're talking about. Here are a few hypothetical situations, say you have two toddlers and they are still using walkers and are running all around the entire house, running into anything and everything. In this case, it would be in your best interest to invest in a carpet that has a short loop, and that is tough against high traffic and stains. We all know how messy kids can get, especially during those terrible two's.. Here's an example of the carpeting you should be looking for.



 Now, let's say you're dealing with a pack of tweens, just for the sake of example, tween boys! At this stage of life, I'm sure your boys will be running in and out of the house between baseball, football, soccer, or track practice- these boys are notorious for tracking dirt everywhere and anywhere. In this case, I can tell you, you're going to want to stick to either tile or laminate- especially if you're in Florida. The major benefits to laminate and tile especially with active kids, is that these are easy and fast to clean. Unlike carpet where dirt is easily trapped and can be a hassle to clean, laminate and tile can be cleaned as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Both of these flooring options can be easily swept and mopped with no problems. However, I do have to advise this, do not let water to sit for a long time on your laminate, that's the only time when laminate is likely to warp. In addition to being easy to clean, these flooring options are likely to last you a very long time. In my Grandparents house, they've had the same tile floor for over 40 years! But, when dealing with toddlers and babies, I would be extremely wary of tile, mainly because of how hard a fall on a tile floor is, as compared to falling on laminate floor or carpeting.
