Finding the right flooring for kids’ rooms can be a challenge. Between concerns about safety, the need for durability, and the want of something to cushion the loud footfalls of running children, picking the best type of flooring can be tricky. Luckily, here at Floor Coverings International Concord, homeowners can find a wide array of options to suit every taste, budget, and child.

Best Flooring for Kids' Rooms Concord


Carpet is a classic option when it comes to installing flooring in kids’ rooms. It is not only soft and comfortable, but is available in a large number of colors and styles that make it both fun and functional. Additionally, carpet’s sound-absorbing fibers can help keep the volume down in the bedroom and throughout the entire house. Plus, if you have little ones that like to play on the floor with you, the warm and cushiony feel of carpet might help save your knees!

Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are another good option for kids’ rooms. Not only are they a beautiful flooring choice but they are also easily adaptable to the changing décor of a kid’s room. As kids get older, colors and furniture can change more often than one might think. To help adapt your space to changing design tastes, consider placing an area rug over your hardwood floors. Area rugs can also provide the same level of comfort, warmth, and soundproofing qualities of carpet, without having to commit to a certain color or style for the long term.


Cork has become increasingly popular over the past few years, and for good reason. In addition to being an environmentally friendly option, cork floors are also hypoallergenic, soft underfoot, and a great insulator against noise. Whether your kids have allergies or are a little accident-prone, cork flooring can help protect them from both sneezes and bruises.
