Want to create the ideal space for your little one to sleep, roam and play in? A cosy bed, fun wall art, a softly glowing night light, a downy-soft playmat on the floor... Let the room capture your imagination, and make sure it’s conducive to sleep. Only the best is good enough for your baby. Time to pick flooring that meets all the requirements!
Choosing the ideal flooring for your nursery is not as simple as it seems. You want the floor to feel and look warm and cosy. It also needs to be easy to clean, without trapping dust. Although your bundle of joy seems perfectly innocent right now, the floor in his or her room will soon be subjected to a wide range of adventurous toddler activities. So, what to look out for when selecting flooring for your nursery?
Why you’ll love Quick-Step in your kid's room:
No room for clichés
Long gone are the days when blue was meant strictly for boys and pink for girls, while yellow and green were reserved for expectant parents wanting to be surprised. Instead, go for fresh yet calming colours, and extend this modern look to the flooring. As always, Quick-Step’s vinyl or laminate flooring range can cater for any taste!
Super easy to clean
Your little one is sure to keep you busy. It’s truly extraordinary how babies and toddlers manage to distribute the entire contents of their toy box across the room or mark the floor with fluids, leaving a trail of crumbs along the way. Regular cleaning is key. Especially when you have an allergy-prone baby: keeping the nursery dust-free is your best defence against sleepless nights.
Highly moisture resistant
We’ve said it before: chances are slim that your baby and the floors in the nursery will remain dry at all times. Save yourself the headache and choose flooring that is highly resistant to moisture. Vinyl, for instance, is ideal, but Eligna, Impressive (Ultra) and Majestic laminate flooring also provide optimal protection against moisture.
Your nursery will evolve from a space for napping and sleeping to a play area. But there’s no bigger spoilsport than an ice-cold floor to sit and play on. Warm floors are a great feature in any room! Not only does vinyl flooring add cosiness, it’s also soft underfoot: perfect for bare baby feet and knees. Another bonus: vinyl flooring is so quiet that you won’t wake your sleeping baby when sneaking in or out of the room.
Calming, familiar and gentle: these are the ideal qualities for the rooms in our homes meant just for our little ones. The nursery is for sleeping, quiet play and learning – and should be able to handle spills while being easy on delicate skin. Carpet may sound like a good option, but it generates dust and allergens and isn’t easy to keep clean.
