15 April 2013 | Trends

When you have children, there are certain considerations that take priority when selecting flooring. Carpet is a great option that provides a soft and comfortable surface for children to play on. We are really spoilt for choice when it comes to carpets, and selecting the right carpet for your family home is a purchase that should be made carefully.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when making your decision:

1. Is it practical?

Family life can be demanding on your carpets, which is why the durability and stain-resistance are key things to look out for in family friendly carpet.

2. What if my child has allergies?

Choosing a natural fibre carpet like wool can be a better option if anyone in your family suffers from allergies as they are naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial.

3. Is it comfortable?

Whether it’s for floor time with your baby, or you have young children playing on the floor with their toys, soft and comfortable carpet is a must. Softer carpet also helps make a quieter environment.

4. How about aesthetics?

Take into consideration which room the carpet is for, the flooring of other rooms in the house and any changes to the room that may occur in the near future. These considerations will help determine colours and patterns that you prefer.
