Which flooring types are best for children?

When you shop for new floors for a child, your main priority is durability, easy cleanability, and stain-and-water resistance.

The adults will want it to be stylish. So it's part of the home's overall decor!

Here are some top choices.


This has it all! It's affordable, durable, waterproof, and highly stylish. You can get wood, stone, colorful graphics, big circles, and more.

The floors have textured looks, depth, and dimension. The luxury version is even cut into planks or square, tile-sized pieces.

It's 100% waterproof and has a transparent top strong wear layer. The latter protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents.

Come into our flooring store. You’ll see wood looks by Dixie Home or stunning stone visuals by Mannington.

Waterproof flooring

This is engineered luxury vinyl. It's thicker, more durable, and constructed with a WPC or SPC core.

Wood plastic composite and stone plastic composite cores won't peel or ripple ever. They are so durable they're graded for commercial use.

They have the same style and low maintenance as luxury vinyl.

Laminate flooring

This is an affordable, attractive alternative to genuine wood or stone. It is scratch-resistant, antibacterial, and highly water-resistant.


This is great for cushioning noise and falls. Be sure to let our flooring company staff know it's for a kid for you to get something with extra durability and stain resistance.

Carpet tiles, and modular squares, have the same benefits with additional design flexibility. You can mix and match to create fun, colorful designs. Best of all, when one is damaged, you replace that, not the entire floor.


Time and again, this is rated as the best for allergy and asthma sufferers. It's durable, easy to care for, and looks great!
