Three flooring options for active households

Three flooring options for active households

When shopping for new floors, you need to give a lot of thought to your household, especially if it's large and active with kids and pets. You'll need something that can withstand the heaviest wear and heavy foot traffic while also being easy to keep clean.

With modern technology, there’s something to suit every lifestyle and decor. Meanwhile, here are three of the best options.

Luxury vinyl flooring

If your active family includes pet residents, you should know that this is "the most pet friendly." It's also highly stylish with accurate to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, cut into planks or square, tile-size pieces.

Luxury vinyl is also affordable, durable, and completely waterproof. That makes it an excellent choice for your new floors.

It is layered and five times thicker than the original product. Just over the printed design layer is a transparent, robust wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents.

It also has a clear urethane finish on top that adds extra strength and shine. This material is low maintenance, only requiring regular sweeping and periodic mopping.


Carpet is, and always will be, one of the most popular floorings among homeowners. It's soft, elegant, has unique versions (i.e., kid-and-pet-friendly), and comes with countless benefits.

You’ll see a lot of SmartStrand In our flooring store. It has been extensively tested at both kids' parties and in a rhino cage (yes, you read that correctly).

Learn about various fibers and pay attention to pile height. All these need are regular vacuuming and a deep cleaning every 12 to 18 months.


Some hardwoods are harder than others, and oak scores high on the Janka Scale. Janka measures a wood's ability to withstand wear and dents.

Other rugged woods include hickory and hard maple, which you’ll also find at our flooring company. Regular dry mopping and vacuuming are all it takes.
