There comes a time in many families’ lives in which they’ll want to replace the flooring in their children’s rooms. Whether they’re expecting a new baby, moving into a new house, or simply have a growing kid whose room is in need of a facelift, this issue is bound to come up at some point or another.


However, replacing the flooring in a child’s room isn’t as easy as doing so in a public space, such as the dining room. This has nothing to do with the geometry of the room or anything of the sort. Children simply grow and change as the years go by. The flooring that goes into their room will remain constant. Therefore, it must fit with any conceivable style your kid can adopt. Moreover, children aren’t the neatest individuals. The floor in their room must be able to stand up to any mess they can create.


Though stylistically versatile and tough-as-nails might seem like a tall order for any flooring, you’ll have no trouble finding something that suits your needs with E Hardwoods & Flooring. Below, we discuss a few of the best flooring options for your children’s rooms.

Your Options Aren’t as Limited as You Might Think

When it comes to timeless, long-lasting styles, your mind might immediately jump to hardwood flooring. However, you also might fear that your child cannot keep up with the maintenance that’s required for that flooring to last, which is understandable. Fortunately, the ever-stylish look of hardwood flooring is available in many other, less maintenance-intensive materials, such as:


  • Waterproof vinyl flooring | Both economical and impervious to moisture damage, vinyl flooring renders itself an excellent choice for children’s bedrooms and playrooms. Vinyl also tends to be scratch-resistant and durable, and it is able to mimic the look of more expensive flooring types. You can add a fuzzy rug for extra coziness.
  • Engineered hardwood flooring | For the older child who is more careful, or if you do not allow food and drink in bedrooms, engineered hardwood can be a solid choice. Its partial plywood composition strengthens it against spills.
  • Laminate flooring | Just like vinyl flooring, laminate flooring can be made to look like almost any hardwood flooring out there. Its economic nature, coupled with the versatility of its many styles, can make it a viable choice for many children's rooms.
