Hardwood floors provide both functionality and beauty to any home, making them great for main living areas.  But, did you know they can also be a great option for the bedrooms of your little ones?

Hardwood floors are incredibly functional in kids’ rooms.  Because of their durability, kids can play with anything they want on them.  They provide a great surface for building blocks, playing house, and bouncing balls.  Wood floors also add warmth to the room, making it cozier for your children to sit or lie on the floor when reading and playing.  Plus, when it comes to design and color, hardwood floors offers a wide range of options, so you can match the flooring to the overall theme of your kids’ room.

Hardwood floors are also easy to clean and maintain. Kids’ rooms are often prone to rough play, but with wooden floors, parents don’t have to worry about stains if something spills.  Spills on the floor are easily wiped away with a clean cloth.  If something isn’t cleaned right away and dry spots appear, they can easily can be removed with specially-designed cleaning agents for hardwood stain removal.

Wooden floors are also easy to maintain because they are sealed, so all you have to do is sweep and mop.  You don’t need to worry about accumulated dust and allergens, like you do with carpet, because they do not easily settle or stick on the floor. This is a huge advantage with children because even the hard to reach areas can be cleaned more easily and thoroughly.

When choosing a hardwood floor for your kid’s room, go with a more practical option. Reclaimed wood, also known as recycled wood, offers a great solution because not only does it provide a richer wood tone, but it lasts longer than new wood and is more forgiving of minor scrapes and damage that may occur during playtime.  Reclaimed wood also benefits the environment because it requires less energy to install it than what it would require to produce new lumber.  It also reduces the need for further deforestation.
