Best Flooring for Busy Homes


Reading time: 4 minutes


Finding the right flooring can come down to a few factors such as cost and appearance, but practicality is very important. This is especially true in properties that see a lot of traffic. As well as commercial properties such as offices, warehouses and shops, and some homes are a hive of activity. That’s why it’s essential to find flooring that can handle situations from busy family life, pets or parties.


Types of flooring for rooms with high traffic

It's important to consider particular rooms, or a hallway, that might benefit from certain types of flooring. Some parts of a property might be busier than others, while some flooring might be right for certain rooms, such as finding the best flooring for a kitchen for example.

  • Solid Wood Flooring
  • Luxury Vinyl Flooring
  • Rugs and Carpeting

What flooring does not dent or scratch?

Most flooring can suffer from the occasional dents and scratches, not only from being walked on but from furniture, plant pots and other items. One of the most scratch-resistant types of flooring is LVT floor panels, while porcelain tiles and ceramic tiles come close. However, this type of tiled flooring is more specifically designed for bathroom flooring. Other types of durable, dent-resistant flooring includes stone and poured resin, but these aren’t always scratch-resistant.
