Laminate floor ideas for babies

Laminate floors are a popular choice for families. They are neat, modern and come in a huge range of styles and colours to fit any home. Another benefit of using laminate floors is that they are hygienic and easy to clean- meaning any messes or spills can be wiped away without fuss. If you’re looking for a cost effective floor, they are a good option and are cheaper than traditional wooden floors. A great tip is to use darker coloured flooring in high traffic/busy areas and a lighter coloured flooring in areas of low foot traffic. Using this trick means your floors will disguise dirt and you won’t have to be hoovering all the time. Interested in laminate floors?

Top Tip! 

If you’re worried about non-carpeted floors being too hard for your little one, try placing rugs down. This is a great way to give your baby something softer to mess around on without sacrificing the look of ‘harder’ floors like vinyl or laminate. If spills or messes end up on the rug no worries! Just stick it in the washing machine and you’re good to go.

Vinyl floors for babies

Vinyl floors are a great child proof flooring idea and a good option mainly because they are so durable. They are also waterproof so you won’t need to worry about spills. Vinyl floors are good for young children as they are comfortable and slightly soft underfoot. Making them more forgiving of slips and trips. Looking for vinyl flooring? Try Tech Flooring for all your flooring needs. Vinyl floors can withstand a lot of foot traffic, making them the perfect choice for a busy household with children and pets. They also provide a small amount of soundproofing, muffling noise to keep your household more peaceful.

 Top Tip!

If you are installing a carpet in preparation for the arrival of a little one, make sure it is installed a number of weeks in advance. Carpet needs time to air out and settle into its environment. Airing out your carpet will ensure your child isn’t overwhelmed by that lovely ‘new carpet’ smell.
