Designing a nursery in your home is a very exciting endeavour! There is a lot to consider to ensure that this special room in your home is comfortable and functional. From choosing the right curtains, crib, and rocking chair, right down to the flooring. You’ll want your nursery flooring to be comfortable, durable, and attractive. For some of our top nursery flooring ideas, read on.
Vinyl Plank for Durability & Selection
Vinyl plank flooring is a great choice for nursery flooring. It is more durable than hardwood, offers many styles to choose from, is resistant to water, and is easy to clean.
CLEO vinyl floors are 100% solvent-free and made with limestone instead of PVC, plasticizers, phthalates, or chloro-chemicals. This high-end flooring choice is safer for the environment— and your family.
Adding a large area rug for extra warmth and comfort is a great idea in any nursery with vinyl plank flooring.
Area rugs are easy to add to any room in your home. You can choose the pattern, colour, material, and size so that it’s perfect for your needs. Area rugs are also easy to clean and replace when the time comes.
Carpet for Comfort
Carpets are the softest and most comfortable choice for most rooms. For young children that crawl and play on the floor, carpet is still one of the most popular choices. While carpets may be harder to clean than hard flooring choices like vinyl plank or wood, there are some great varieties of carpet that are stain-resistant and durable…like wool!
Wool blend is a great choice for nurseries because it’s soft, durable, naturally antimicrobial, and hypoallergenic. Wool is also naturally stain-resistant and can be treated so that it’s flame retardant. As wool is a natural fibre, it is also lower in VOCs than other types of synthetic carpet, which may make it a more appealing choice for a nursery.
Colour & Design Matter
When choosing a carpet for your nursery, we recommend a flecked design. This will help camouflage dirt and stains better than a solid colour or white variety. In a high-traffic room like a nursery, you will appreciate not having to worry about every speck of dirt or minor spill.
Add Carpet Padding
If you decide to go with carpet for your nursery, a stain-proof underpad will work as a vapour barrier to help manage stains and odours. The right padding will also increase the comfort and warmth of the carpet.
