With kids come messes. It’s an unavoidable fact of life. They track in dirt, they spill juice, they drop food. It’s amazing that such tiny, adorable, innocent beings can leave such disaster in their wake. When choosing flooring for a home with children, you need a product that can keep up with daily—if not hourly—soiling and cleaning while still managing to look good. Vinyl flooring offers a practical, affordable and even stylish solution.
Vinyl flooring still comes in sheet form, but it also comes in planks and tiles that snap together, often referred to as luxury vinyl tile (LVT). LVT and sheet vinyl flooring have improved dramatically, both in performance and aesthetics in recent years, and LVT has propelled vinyl flooring into a new class of hard surface flooring with its high design looks at family-friendly prices.
Vinyl also comes in different forms for different installations. Glue-down vinyl, available in both sheet and LVT, is attached directly to the subfloor with adhesive and is recommended for areas like bathrooms or large rooms requiring multiple seams. Loose lay sheet vinyl and floating LVT, which sit on top of the subfloor without adhesive, can be installed over subfloors that are too rough for gluing.
The latest innovation in vinyl flooring is LVT with a rigid, waterproof core. The planks and tiles lock together for a waterproof floor that won’t telegraph imperfections from the subfloor. Installation is quick and easy, and can be done in any room of the house, no matter the humidity levels or fluctuations in temperature.
