Children change how parents do everything, including how we style and decorate our homes. When you have a child, their safety comes first. That’s why choosing kid-safe flooring is such an important part of creating your dream home.
From stain-resistance to anti-scratch properties, Landmark Interiors flooring products feature on-trend styles that are also tough enough for children. Here are some helpful tips for choosing the best kid-safe flooring.
Select Flooring With Moisture/Liquid Resistance
When you have a young kid, wet and sticky are near-constant conditions for yourself, your kid, and your home. So, your floors should hold up against any potential spills, including juice, water, or dinner.
Landmark Interiors’ Luxury Vinyl Plank and Tile give you the look of real wood while offering stain- and moisture-resistant qualities, though no flooring is fully resistant. Engineered hardwood also has moisture-resistant properties.
With these products, you don’t need to sacrifice style for function. Even as busy parents, you can have it all. Imagine your Landmark Interiors flooring picks using our Floor Visualizer. The Flooring Visualizer can help you get a first look at what that floor might look like in your home. Try different styles and find the match that completes your home’s look.
Look for Comfort and Anti-Scratch Traits
Kids love to be on the floor, and they often bring their toys with them. Scratch resistance helps to ensure that your child’s toys won’t leave memories etched into your floor. Engineered hardwood and Luxury Vinyl Tile & Plank from Landmark Interiors is largely scratch-resistant, meaning it can still look good-as-new, even after a play session with your kids.
Consider Padding and Comfort
Well-padded floors mean less strain on your kids’ knees while they jump or crawl around. Not to mention the early walking stage when they might take a small tumble here and there.
With the right padding underneath the flooring, your children hurt less, and your floors remain undamaged. Landmark Interiors’ engineered hardwood, like the Betsy Ross line, have a half inch of thickness. This subfloor padding makes the flooring easier on joints and softer for everyone to walk on—including kids. When they take a tumble, it will likely hurt less than flooring with less padding underneath.
Recycled rubber flooring is great for playrooms. It provides plenty of comfort for kids and scratch resistance against toys and activities. Recycled rubber is also shock resistant, with a padding thickness of eight millimeters. Landmark Interiors’ Sports Strength flooring has a thickness up to one inch.

Consider How Easy the Floors Are to Clean
Kids are messy. Mess means cleaning. Make sure that the floors you choose make it easy to wipe up spills or dirt. The less time you have to spend cleaning, the more time you can spend with your kids.
Keeping your floors clean also helps keep your child healthy. Routine vacuuming or sweeping can pick up dirt, debris, or pet dander on your floor and aid in keeping your child from breathing it in as often. This is particularly important for children with allergies and asthma.
Many of our LVT and LVT flooring products also have anti-microbial properties and air quality GreenGaurd certifications. Children with breathing issues can breathe easier and keep playing.
Both LVT and engineered hardwood make it easy to vacuum up any dirt or debris. Pet dander and dust won’t get trapped inside these flooring options either.
For more stubborn messes, the occasional Swiffer or a similar device can also keep your floors shining bright, and ScotchGuard can help prevent permanent staining. For proper cleaning care, be sure to consult the manufacturer’s instructions.
