Luxury vinyl flooring: a terrific choice for homes with kids

When you have kids, the flooring's job becomes even more significant. It has to be stylish enough for adults, but appearance isn't the same priority for kids.

It also needs to be durable enough to withstand the pitter-patter of little feet and pull-toys, wheelies, and whatever else they dish out. It's also great if it is also waterproof and easy to clean.

Enter luxury vinyl plank or tile. These products offer the most value for the decorating dollar.

Extreme durability

The LVP or tile-sized pieces are layered five times thicker than the original product. It also comes with a top transparent melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs.

Whether the LVT or vinyl plank, these measure 8-mm to 12-mm in thickness, with the most robust wear layer being 20-mil. It's 100% waterproof, whether spilled on or submerged.

Stylish enough for adults

Both LVP and luxury vinyl tile work well in any room, including living and dining spaces. Images of wood, stone, and tile are taken digitally, clear, vibrant, and ultra-realistic.

The floors are embossed for depth and dimension and come with textures and finishes. As for the cuts, many tell us the extra seams add to the realism.

Other benefits:

1. Affordability: They are so realistic, sometimes even the flooring experts can tell it from genuine materials. You'll know because you won't pay nearly the same price.

2. Uncomplicated installation: Especially when the floors float. Pieces click, mat, and hover over the subfloor without adhesives with this technique.
