Playrooms for kids and teens mean are bound to experience messes, accidents, and lots of rough-and-tumble movement. The best floor for a playroom should be comfortable, but also needs to be durable and easy to clean. Here are some suggestions from our Floor Coverings International Parker experts that could be perfect for your Castle Rock home:
Low Pile Carpet
Kids and teens love to sit on the floor to socialize or play, so a soft low-pile carpet that won’t trap dirt or liquids is a good choice. When it comes to quality, you can go in two directions. If you plan on switching out the carpet in a few years, you can go ultra-economic with a common polypropylene or polyester carpet. However, if you want a high quality carpet that will last for many years, you should consider one made of a durable material like nylon or triexta.
This smooth, 100% waterproof floor means that accidental juice box spills are no longer a threat. Since luxury vinyl is more resilient than its synthetic competitor, laminate, it’s easier on the feet and makes a great play surface. For extra comfort and warmth, we suggest throwing in a few low-maintenance area rugs for comfortable floor play.
Rubber floors are a firm yet comfortable surface, making them an excellent choice for a high-traffic playroom. They are easy to clean, water-resistant, and can handle impacts well. You see gyms and daycares using this floor for a reason: it’s strong against falls but it’s still a resilient surface that won’t be too hard on the feet. It’s also a good insulator so it won’t feel too cold in the winter.
