Maybe you’ve got kids and, being invested in their continued growth, are constantly running them to extracurricular activities and friends’ houses. Maybe you and your spouse have demanding careers which demand odd hours or lots of travel. Or, maybe your family is simply a group of go-getters, constantly seeking new and exciting events and places to attend. Regardless, your household has been described as “active,” “on-the-go,” or “busy.” In other words, the specifics of your lifestyle aside, you’re always preoccupied with something!

As active as you are, though, you still care deeply about your home—hence your reason for seeking new flooring. E Hardwoods & Flooring is here to help. Just like anyone else, you must take your way of living into account before embarking on the purchasing of any flooring. Given that you personally might not have a lot of time for maintenance and probably would appreciate quick clean up capabilities, one flooring type stands out above all the rest as a great fit for the household whose schedule is tight:

Waterproof Vinyl Flooring: The No-Fuss Family’s Best Friend

Vinyl flooring is completely waterproof; this means that should somebody inevitably spill their soda on it, cleanup is as quick as a quick wipedown with a commercial cleaning product. This means your family has more time to get back to all the fun activities that matter to them, instead of fretting about potential flooring damage. In addition, luxury vinyl plank flooring is much thicker than typical vinyl flooring, making it a durable, long-lasting, and gorgeous flooring type that easily mimics the look of other, more high-maintenance flooring types.

Of course, it’s not your only option.


  • Laminate flooringcan be a good fit, provided your family is conscientious about spills. Because it has a partially wood composition, it needs a little more care when it comes to accidents. In addition, make sure to keep an eye on it if your building is prone to rapid humidity changes.
  • Hardwood flooringis an option if your family can set aside time to keep up with maintenance or pay professionals to do it. While durable and incredibly long-lasting, it does require care, so it’s not an investment to step into lightly.
  • Engineered hardwood flooringcan be a nice middle ground. If you desire real wood floors but can’t afford the maintenance, engineered hardwood flooring might be a smart choice.
