A Guide to: Best Flooring for your Children’s Playroom

May 26, 2014

A playroom is undoubtedly one of the happiest places in your homes for your children – and it can be one of the worst places for your cleaning endeavours if you’ve chosen a poor option for the flooring! With that in mind, we’ve put together a few little options for flooring in your children’s playroom:

Wood and Bamboo


Wood and bamboo are superb options for playroom flooring if the rest of your home has them in as it allows for a more versatile room that can be changed and re-purposed to a games room or study for when they get a little older – or any other room for that matter. Soften it up with bright rugs or foam tiles to create a softer landing for the inevitable falls and bumps. If your home has other flooring throughout however, like tiles or carpets, then there are probably better options to choose from.



If it’s easy maintenance, low cost and hundreds of options to choose from you’re after, then vinyl is definitely your winner. With so many colours, styles and textures, you’ll be able to pick a floor that suits the walls, toys and any themes you may have. Vinyl will more than likely need to be replaced as your children get older and grow out of the playroom, so keep that in mind when making your final decision.



Carpet is a lovely, soft, warm option for playroom flooring, with one big downside… it’s not that easy to clean. Playroom floors, despite any rules you may have in place, will eventually be spilled and messed on. We recommend going for carpet tiles instead. These can be easily replaced if necessary and can also be made into a colourful checkerboard for a fun element.

There you have it, our top picks for a playroom! We hope our series on Best Flooring Options have given you a little help and inspiration to make the big decisions on flooring.
