Wall-to-wall carpet can be an excellent choice for a kids room regardless of the occupant's age. It creates a soft surface for crawling and provides padding for the inevitable falls. Carpeting can also give a kids room a cozy feeling. More parents seem to be opting for indoor/outdoor carpet for a kids room. These carpets aren't as deep and will potentially last longer than traditional carpets. Keep in mind that carpets aren't always easy to clean. If your child is especially prone to messy spills, you may want to consider an alternative.
Try Hardwood in a Kid's Room
This traditional selection isn't the first thing that most parents think of for a kid's room, but a dark hardwood has a sophisticated look that will grow with your child. Light-colored hardwoods brighten up smaller spaces. Best of all, hardwoods are durable and can be refinished to repair just about any damage. Cleaning is also typically straightforward. If you want to soften up the space for playtime, consider getting a plush area rug for the space.
Vinyl Provides Versatility
Vinyl has the advantage of being inexpensive and extraordinarily easy to maintain. Spills are never a problem, and even a kid who likes to play rough probably can't do a lot of damage to this surface. You can warm up the floor with a colorful area rug to provide a softer space for playing on the floor.
