When you have children, it’s important to think about the best kind of flooring to deal with their whirlwind of activity and messes. Safety is a huge factor, as well as the ability to hide dirt and a surface that can be easily clean. Regardless of the flooring that you choose, it will probably not escape unscathed, but that’s just part of having kids! However, some flooring options are decidedly better than others.
Rubber is a great flooring choice because it’s easy to clean and it’s a cushioned surface. That way, if your little one falls, it won’t leave such a bump. Also, you can get a dark rubber floor that won’t show stains and messes.
If you have harder floors in some rooms, put down plush area rugs to keep the floors safer. You can also get stain-resistant carpeting in some rooms. That will create a soft surface while also still hiding spills.
