When it comes to choosing the type of flooring for your child’s bedroom or playroom, there are many options to consider. Your local experts at Floor Coverings International East Lake are here to help you decide which is best.


Carpet Flooring Tarpon SpringsCarpeting

Covering your child’s playroom with carpeting guarantees that their little feet will always tread upon something soft and that they will have cushioning for when they fall. There are many stain-resistant brands available, and you can place an area rug over the main play area if you are concerned about keeping the carpet clean. Also, many carpeting choices are cost-effective, attractive, and they are available in a variety of colors.


Laminate Flooring

One option that is durable enough to stand up to the pressures of a playroom and stylish enough to last you years to come is laminate. Planks are made of durable particle board and a high-resolution design layer that can mimic any color or grain of traditional hardwood varieties. Laminate can be “floated” over existing flooring and is incredibly easy to install, maintain, and replace. To make the playroom more inviting and cozy, consider an area rug over your laminate in the main area of the room.


Vinyl Tile Floating Tarpon Springs FlooringVinyl

Vinyl is a versatile choice that also gives your child a soft place to land. You can spruce it up by placing foam lettering on top of it, or you can add some color with a decorative rug. It is very resistant to spills and stains, and it can stand up to the wear and tear of dropped toys and stomping feet. In addition, it is inexpensive and easy to install or to replace later on. For a more stylish upgrade, consider luxury vinyl tile.



Cork has been gaining popularity in recent years with the rise of eco-friendly trends. Floors have a very distinct natural look that brings a lot of vibrancy into a room, but can also be stained and customized to your personal style. Cork is fairly elastic underfoot and provides the softness and cushion that kids would love to play on all day long. The mature look of cork will ensure that it can remain a staple in your home for years to come. Keep in mind that the soft material is susceptible to tears or gouges and should be treated with a durable protectant.
