How to pick the perfect flooring when you have kids!

How you imagine your house will look before you have children is a completely different vision to how it will actually be when you have an army of mini people running around. Everything breakable will have to be moved up high and forget about having clean walls, children really don’t care if you spent all your spare time on getting your painting and wallpaper perfect. A clean wall is a new canvas for their artwork.

When it comes to choosing flooring, it is no different. When looking at flooring, you can find it can be an expensive part of decorating. You want something that is durable and will last years so you get as much use out of it as possible. When you are single or in a new couple and moving in, you imagine having a beautifully clean, light room with spotless white flooring. In reality that would be fine until the time comes when you have children running around. For example, you wouldn’t want to spend your well-earned money on a white carpet then a couple of weeks later you walk in to find your 3 year has rubbed bright pink play dough in to it. It has disaster written all over it. Like everything when it comes to decorating, there are few questions you can ask yourself in order to choose your perfect flooring.

What is your lifestyle like? What room in your home? How much do you want to spend?

If you have a lot of movement in your house such as young children running round or pets or even a lot of family visitors, then you will want something very hard-wearing such as wood flooring. Places such as Pinteredt are a great place to start looking, there are so many different options when it comes to wood flooring. In a room such as a hallway, where your front door is, it may not be the best idea to have plush thick pile carpet as this is where the majority of mud will be brought in to the house. A floor such as a wood floor would mean that it can be washed and maintained easily. Location in a house is a key factor. You need to map out where each flooring choice will be and think about carefully. If you only starting off your home, finances might crazy and it can seem a bit intimidating so you want to invest your money well in to your flooring. When spending a lot of money, you want to make sure that the product is going to last and age well. If it doesn’t then in the long run it will not be worth your money.

Planning how your home will look when you have your own little family is an exciting experience and getting the whole family involved in the decision-making process can also be fun for the kids!

Hi! I am a 23 year old blogger from little old Norfolk. I am a wife to Jonny and a mummy to 2 daughters, Elsa and Cleo. I started this blog in September 2016 and have fell in love with blogging! My blog is my little space on the internet to write about what I want. I write about my little brother, who has Down Syndrome and I use my blog and social media to raise awareness. As well as product reviews, our adventures.

  1. I’m lucky I’ve not had to grow up and be an adult properly yet, I’ve only lived in rented houses so I’ve never had to look at flooring! Hopefully when we own a house I’ll keep all this in mind!

  2. We’re wanting wood flooring throughout our downstairs when we move. It just think its so easy to clean compared to carpet on the side that it doesn’t get stained. We’ll just chuck a huge rug in the lounge so kiddies can have something softer to sit on on the floor!
    Much love, Caitylis x x
