Here in Edmond, we know that our customers are always on the go. Because of this, we have some ideas for floors that we know can keep up with your lifestyle. We have judged these popular flooring choices based on the average installation time, durability, and wide variety of styles available. Check out our 3 favorite materials for busy families here!
Carpet is popular in many homes with children or senior citizens because it offers a lot of warmth, support, and comfort underfoot. Its relatively painless installation process makes it a fantastic choice for busy families. Depending on the scale of the project, most carpet installation jobs can be completed within a day or two. Professional installation is the best course of action to take for carpet, as this will mitigate lumps or snaps that could otherwise occur.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Vinyl flooring has improved by leaps and bounds the recent years and has become a go-to choice for busy families. Luxury vinyl mimics the look and feel of more expensive flooring choices like exotic hardwood or stone. Luxury vinyl tiles or planks are a breeze to install as well and can even be installed on top of existing flooring. And on top of all that, they’re scratch, dent, and water-resistant!
When properly cared for, hardwood floors can last for generations. Many hardwoods are quite durable and have high Janka hardness ratings. These hardwoods include hickory, white oak, red oak, Brazilian walnut, and even bamboo (though it’s technically a grass). It’s smart to opt for a dense hardwood if you have an especially active household. Distressed hardwood planks can help obscure scratches and dents that occur in a busy family while also adding warm, homey touch.
Unlike carpet or luxury vinyl, hardwood floors have a much longer installation timeline—especially if you want a patterned parquet or herringbone hardwood floor. Engineered and prefinished floors are the best option for busy families who want hardwood flooring because they’re less complicated to install.
