One of the most important places to protect, is a place where your children will spend a lot of their early days, the floor. Whether it be crawling, or taking their first steps, it’s important to ensure your floor has enough protection to keep your children safe. A majority of flooring is safe for children, your flooring can however be subject to damage. Scratching and surface damage can occur from the most simple of things, such as push chairs and children’s toys. So if you’re worried about this, hardwood may not be the best option for you.
Laminate on the other hand has great durability, and is probably the best flooring out there for families with kids. It has great water resistance, perfect for any accidents! It’s easy to clean, and very easy to maintain. It’s durable, so will last a long time. It is also perfect for heavy footfall, and can withstand a lot of pressure that family life throws at it. Surface damage will be limited, and scratching doesn’t usually show through. It is also perfect for families with children that suffer from allergies, due to the tight seal, dust, dirt, pollen and other allergens can’t penetrate it so won’t hang around for too long!

Carpets and rugs are also a great idea to help protect your children. They provide a soft landing, and have far better static qualities to prevent them from slipping over! If you’re looking for the cheapest and most logical flooring for kids, laminate will be your best friend. Hardwood is great for homes looking for a bit more style, but practicality is not it’s strong point! We hope our guide has helped you, head to www.poshflooring.co.uk
