Summertime is a great season to get outdoors and enjoy! With the popularity of outdoor kitchens and making your home a sanctuary, people are finding themselves remodeling to suit their wants and needs. Kids are home a lot more in summer which means higher foot traffic, spills, water on the floor, etc. which is all the more reason to consider these factors when installing new flooring in your home. Listed below are choices for outdoor flooring/pool areas, indoor flooring and maintenance.
Outdoor Flooring and Pool Areas: If you have an outdoor area like a patio, deck, backyard, or pool, it’s essential to have a suitable flooring option. Common choices include porcelain tile, natural stone, porcelain pavers, and brick pavers. These materials are durable, slip-resistant, and can withstand the elements making them ideal for children to play on. Pictured below is one of the natural stone options in our showroom: A & P Coral Classics in fossil and shell stone.
Indoor Flooring: If you’re concerned about keeping your indoor floors clean during the summer, consider using durable flooring options that can withstand high foot traffic and are easy to clean. Laminate flooring, vinyl planks, and tile are resistant to spills , stains, and scratches but hardwood flooring and carpet are also great choices depending on your preferences. Consider where it would be best for them in your home. If you are looking to remodel, it’s important to contact an industry professional to choose the right flooring for your home. There many products out there and it can be very overwhelming when trying to decide on your own. Our showroom has many samples and our team is always available to help.

Playroom Flooring: For indoor play areas or kids’ bedrooms, foam mats or carpet tiles are excellent options. They provide a soft and comfortable surface for children to play on, reducing the risk of injuries during playtime. Having a custom rug made for your space is an excellent option.

Maintenance: Regular maintenance is essential to keep your floors in good condition. Sweeping or vacuuming regularly helps remove dirt and debris, preventing scratches or damage. For specific flooring types, follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for cleaning and maintenance.
