Becoming a parent for the first time changes a lot of things in new parents' lives, and their ideal flooring choice is no exception. If you have children and are wondering what type of flooring is best, you should definitely be considering laminate flooring as a top option. Here are five reasons why laminate flooring is a great option for families with children.

Benefits of Laminate Flooring for Families

1. It is Durable

Kids have a tendency to ruin things. Thankfully, laminate flooring is very durable and difficult to ruin. It is scratch, dent, chip and wear resistant, and it doesn't stain or cut as easily as carpet does.

2. It is Affordable

Secondly, laminate flooring is very affordable, which is a must for parents who have several other kid-related expenses to pay for. You can even find laminate flooring that mimics the look of hardwood, stone or ceramic and have a beautiful look at a fraction of the price.

3. It is Easy to Clean and Maintain

One of the best reasons to choose laminate flooring is how easy it is to clean and maintain. It doesn't require any special cleaning products, and it doesn't need to be sealed. Food and body fluids don't soak into it like they do with carpet or wood. You don't have to clean up spills immediately. Simply sweep and mop as you have time, and it will look as good as new!

4. It Lasts a Long Time

Laminate flooring doesn't wear out the way that carpet and hardwood do. While the best carpets only last for 10 to 15 years, laminate can easily last for 25. This means less fuss and less expense for parents who have other things to do.

5. It is Great for Playing

Lastly, laminate flooring is a perfect place for kids to play. It isn't hard like marble, cars and scooters roll on it, play dough doesn't get ground into it, and nail polish can be easily cleaned off of it.
