Which Flooring Is Best For Your Children's Playroom?

Having a place for all the children’s toys has been a lifesaver over the years - just having that designated space where all their accumulated toys can be stored and the door can be closed at night to hide away the mess. The boys do play all over the house and bring their toys around with them, but they know to put them back in their room at the end of the day and they like to keep it in order, having different storage boxes for different sorts of toys. 

When creating a playroom for the children though, thinking about the flooring is an important consideration. There are so many options to choose from and are pros and cons for them all. It's really best to consider what is important to you and in your home to make sure your choice is the best option long term.

Laminate Flooring
If the wipe clean option is important to you, then you might want to opt for laminate flooring. In general, laminate flooring is long-lasting and performs well when used heavily. In a playroom that gets lots of use, this could be really valuable and the wipe-clean aspect is perfect for cleaning up after a juice, or paint, spillage.

Other benefits of laminate flooring is that they are easy to maintain, stain resistant and come in tons of different shades and colours, so you’ll be sure to find something to match your playroom design. 

Artificial grass
Now, hear me out on this one before dismissing it completely. This is a bit different I admit, but it’s worth considering as artificial grass is really easy to keep clean, it is comfy underfoot and comfy to sit on and play on too. 

Of course, it doesn’t have that soft feel of a carpet, but playrooms needs to be practical don’t they and it's usually a more reasonable price to buy and fit too. Whilst also giving your children a base for all their games - just not very good if you're wanting something long lasting as it might not fit most themes. 

Carpet is always an option when looking for flooring for a playroom. Not only does it feel warm and cosy in the colder months, but it is comfy to sit and play on for the children, and the grown ups too, of course. 

You can choose many designs, colours, patterns and thickness to suit, but the downsides of having a carpeted playroom is that toy vehicles don’t tend to run across them very well and spillages can be harder to clear up so it would mean a ban on food and drinks in the playroom. 

In the end, I think it's down to personal preference, but for me laminate flooring will always win as it's just easier all round, and I can always throw a rug down to give a bit of warmth to the room.
