Difficult to choose from all floor coverings. In order to offer your child the layout that best suits him, here are some selection criteria that will help you determine the coating you need. You just have to weigh the pros and cons!
PVC (polyvinyl chloride)
The + : Not only is PVC a trendy product that imitates many materials (parquet, stone, patterns, etc.), it is above all a very ecological and easy-to-clean thermal and sound insulator. Thanks to its antibacterial properties and its resistance to stains and soiling, PVC is perfectly suited to the bedroom of the youngest. The - : Suitable for a room that we plan to renovate in the future. PVC is indeed not very resistant to wear.
The + : With its wide choice of colors and patterns suitable for a child's room, lino is a very designer coating known for its ecological qualities. Its 100% natural composition makes it a healthy product for children's rooms, especially since it is antiallergic and hygienic. Another advantage of linoleum is its resistance to stains. A sponge is enough to erase the traces. The - : If the maintenance of the linoleum is easy, it tears easily however and remains sensitive to sharp toys or the movement of heavy furniture.
The + : It is well known, the carpet is the comfortable and warm covering par excellence. Toddlers enjoy playing on soft, anti-booze ground, older children like to invite their friends and sit comfortably on the floor. Because it retains heat, the carpet is particularly suitable for cold or dark rooms. The - : The floor of a child's room is never protected from a stain of paint, plasticine or a trace of felt. However, on the carpet, all this dirt is difficult to remove. On the other hand, this flooring is synonymous with rapid dust accumulation. Avoid if your child has an allergy or asthma.
The + : For wood lovers, laminate parquet offers an appearance very close to that of solid parquet at a lower cost. Quick to install, with a wide palette of colors and wood species, easy maintenance (regular sweeping is enough), this floor covering has many advantages. The - : Attention, laminate parquet is particularly sensitive to shocks (knocks and scratches), as well as to humidity, whether it comes from the sub-floor or from a mop loaded with water.
