First thing's first, you'll need to consider flooring installation. Each flooring type has different installment requirements and time-frames which play a significant role in the renovation process. Do you want to install a floating floor over pre-existing floors, cutting down on renovation time as well as smelly glues and fumes? With this option, you're eliminating the need for on-site sanding, varnishing, and surface treatments which usually come with flooring like solid hardwood. If you're looking for something quick and relatively painless, you can float floors with premium linoleum, higher-grade plastic laminates, and engineered hardwood.
Flooring Information for... Product Durability
For families that have many members and thus higher amounts of foot-traffic, you may want to examine choices like bamboo, luxury vinyl tile, premium laminates, and solid hardwood that are very durable. The truth is, you'll have to deal with a lot of bumps, scuffs, dents, and scratches from all that kid fun, so it's essential to select a reliable flooring material that can withstand daily rigmarole. Think of all the things your child(ren) will drag, throw, and drop on the floor, and that doesn't even include the spilled drinks and food, so you're going to need some seriously durable flooring.
Flooring Information for... Material Safety
Aside from a solid flooring that easy to install and maintain, you'll also want a flooring type that's slip-resistant. The materials we've mentioned thus far have proven anti-skid properties, though luxury vinyl (LVT) tile does have the highest amount of slip-resistance. The great thing is, LVT comes in a huge selection of colors, designs, tones, and grain effects. Not only will your home be skid-proof and kid-proof, it’ll be stylish too!
