If you have a family that is growing and pets, high traffic and accidents can do a number on many custom floors. This is why you may want to have floors in your home that can stand the test of time and the abuse that kids and pets can cause. Here are some of the durable flooring options you may want to consider for your growing family:
1. Choosing Carpets That Are Durable And Easy To Clean
There are many different choices of carpet materials that you can install in your home. The common carpet materials may not be very durable, but there are some alternatives. If you want to have carpet in areas like bedrooms or living rooms for comfort, you will want to use a dense carpet that is stain resistant. You may also want to look at some of the commercial carpet materials to see if there are any styles that you like. This is because the commercial flooring is usually designed to be very durable and easy to clean.
2. Acid-Stained Concrete As An Alternative To Custom Tile Work
You may also be considering tile flooring in different areas of your home, such as the kitchen or maybe even a finished basement. In areas with concrete, acid staining can give your floors a custom tile look. This can also be done to other floors with a treated plywood underlayment. Over the wood floor system, a lightweight concrete can be installed to give you the surface needed to do an acid stained floor. If you want a unique finish, the acid staining can also be installed in a marble pattern to make your floors look more like marble or stone flooring.
3. Giving Your Home A Unique Flooring Design With Epoxy Materials
There may be areas of your home where you want to have a unique flooring design. You may want to have floors that are durable and colorful for a playroom or water resistant floors for a basement or garage. Epoxy flooring materials can be a great choice for these areas. They can be plain or they can have different colors and designs added to them. They are also very durable and easy to clean, which make them a great choice for areas where you want something that is easy to clean up messes.
These are some of the options you may want to consider for a durable flooring for your growing family. If you want to have all the right floors in your home, talk with your custom home builder about using some of these ideas in your home.
