Why Vinyl Flooring is the most child and pet friendly floor

When it comes to our children and our pets, we want the best for them.  We want to be sure that the floors they crawl or walk on are completely safe. And we need to consider how to balance this safety with durability and comfort.

Some of the types of floors you will perhaps consider for your home, nursery, playrooms or pet care centres are ceramic, wood, laminate or stone but these have their drawbacks.  Let’s dive a little deeper:


Wood looks good, but scratches easily and liquid spills can leave stains that look ugly. It’s a nightmare to wax, reseal and refinish wood floors. You need to move out when this is being done and that awful chemical smell lasts for ages! Besides with climate change, you don’t want cutting trees on your conscience!


Laminates show scratches and marks very easily. And we know that is sure to be a major issue with both children and pets. Also, keep in mind that laminate is very slippery when it gets wet, so the potential for accidental falls is high and that is a huge worry with children, pets and even the elderly. Furthermore, if there is a liquid spill which is not cleaned immediately, it will “warp” that area very quickly. Laminates also have a strange “hollow’ sound when you walk on them, as they don’t absorb noise very well.


Stone floors are hard, cold and aren’t really very comfortable to crawl or walk on. Not a good choice at all for adults, leave alone your toddlers and furry friends!

Ceramic tiles

Ceramic tiles are generally cheap, but you need to hack your floor in order to compensate for the height and that can be a huge hassle, especially if you are renovating. Plus, the ugly black and brown dirt that collects in the joints is impossible to clean and a real eyesore. Light coloured ceramic tiles can stain easily too and if they chip, they are very hard to replace.

So is there really another option? Glad you asked!  Introducing Luxe Natural Look Vinyl. The next generation vinyl floor that not only looks amazingly like real wood or stone floors but is also ultra-safe and durable too.

Here’s why Luxe Natural look vinyl is really the best choice for your home, playschool, nursery or pet daycare centre.


Safety is a major consideration when it comes to children or pets. You want absolute peace of mind knowing that you have those precious tots crawling on the floors or pets sprawled around.

Its easy to clean off any paint and other spills from kids playing or eating and drinking. And there’s no staining whatsoever. Just wipe and its gone! And for normal maintenance, just sweep, vacuum or mop with floor cleaner and water and these floors look as good as new for a very long time
