What is the Best Flooring for a Nursery?

If you’ve got a little one on the way, you’ve probably also got a checklist of a million things you want to do to prepare for their arrival. From bottle-buying to baby-proofing, you want to ensure that your home is going to be a safe and happy place for your new baby. One of the biggest projects that you’ll undertake is putting together a nursery. You’ve got all the snuggly blankets and cuddly stuffed animals picked out, but what about the flooring?

Cork flooring can be a wonderful option for a baby’s room. While not the most conventional of choices, cork is practical, easy to clean, and can be dressed up with small area rugs. The number one benefit of cork flooring for your nursery is that because it is soft, it absorbs sound. Unlike with a hardwood floor, you won’t have to tip-toe around on cork flooring when your baby is napping. And when they get to toddling age, that soft floor underfoot will be much more forgiving than hardwood when your baby learns to walk and, inevitably, stumble a little bit too!

Like cork flooring, carpeting shares the benefit of being soft and sound-absorbing. Unlike cork flooring, however, carpeting can be difficult to keep clean and can be susceptible to staining. If you ask your expert at Jim Boyd’s Flooring America, they can tell you which carpet options are stain-resistant, hypoallergenic, and environmentally sustainable, making it a better option for your baby’s room,

No matter which kind of flooring you choose, proper care will be the key to keeping it baby-friendly. Vacuum frequently to prevent dust and allergens from collecting, as these can be harmful to your newborn, and use organic or “green” cleaning supplies to cut down on your baby’s exposure to chemicals. The most important thing is to create a cozy spot for your new family, and the experts at Jim Boyd’s Flooring America can help!
