What's the Best Flooring Option If You Have Kids?

Home Improvement

Having children changes your life in countless ways. Every decision you make is now influenced by your kids in one way or another. Where you go on vacation, what you have for dinner, and even what you wear on a daily basis can be affected by your little rugrats. This is especially true when you're remodeling your home and possibly looking for custom hardwood flooring in Long Island.

You're likely considering as many child-friendly renovation options as you can find--rounded corners on your counters, cupboards and drawers that won't slam, etc. But what about your flooring? Have you ever really thought about what flooring type is best in your home when you have kids running around? This article will discuss the most common flooring options--hardwood, carpet, tile, and vinyl--and the pros and cons of each as they relate to your children.


Custom hardwood flooring in Long Island can add a beautiful, classic look to your home. It is a look that never goes out of style, but more importantly it's durable. This is extremely important when it comes to children. As a parent, you're probably already aware of the fact that kids have a tendency to scuff, scratch, dent, and stain most of the things around them.

Though hardwood floors can be scuffed, scratched, and dented, they tend to age very well. This means that, overall, those little bits of damage will just add character to the wood, and eventually give it a nice, aged look. However, you also have the option of sanding and buffing out scratches to restore your floors to their original luster.

Additionally, when treated properly, hardwood floors are pretty resistant to spills and stains. As long as you make sure to clean up the spills fairly quickly, you don't have to worry about your kids' red Kool-Aid dying your floors. It's a fairly expensive flooring option, but its durability makes it worth it.


Carpet is a warm and homey flooring to have. Kids can play on it together, lay down on it to watch TV, and run around without worrying about slipping in their socks. The only damage you really have to worry about when it comes to carpet is spills. Spills can quickly stain carpets and can be impossible to get out. Unfortunately, in order to get rid of the stains, you would have to re-carpet the entire room. However, carpet is a relatively inexpensive flooring option, so it won't wipe you out to have to replace it.


Like hardwood, tile is relatively durable and is resistant to spills, as long as you clean them up quickly. However, it's important to remember that there are many tile options out there, and some will stain more easily than others due to their absorbency. Tiles can also be cracked if something hard is dropped on them, and it can be difficult to replace individual pieces.


Vinyl flooring is not very popular due to its overall "cheap" appearance. However, if you have children, it may still be an option you want to consider. The fact of the matter is, vinyl is inexpensive when compared to other flooring options, so it won't cost you much to replace it when it becomes damaged or stained.

However, it may become worn out more quickly than you'd hoped. With kids, you're more likely to have spills that stain, or to end up with tears or lifting corners in your vinyl. Depending on just how rambunctious the kids are, vinyl may only last you a few years.

Overall, if you're looking for something that can withstand the wear and tear of your house full of children, custom hardwood flooring in Long Island is likely going to be your best option.
