Carpets

The first thing that comes to our mind when we talk about a nursery is a nice cozy fluffy carpet. They do look as good as they do on all those commercials and movies and are also extremely comfortable. However, if you have a real kid, you would not want to have carpets installed as cleaning them is a menace unless you are considerably rich and can afford the services of a professional carpet cleaner regularly.

Wood

Wooden floors are a treat to the eyes; they look elegant and also feel good. However, they may not be the best solution for a kid’s room as they get worn out easily and are also costly. Moreover, you might have to treat them to prevent pests and these chemicals may be harmful.

In addition, they are also a bit slippery and, therefore, the frequency of accidents may rise.

Vinyl

Commercial vinyl Melbourne can achieve the wooden finish for a lesser cost and will not wear out quickly. It is super easy to clean vinyl floors too.However, if you are an environmentalist or if you just happen to love the nature, this is not the option for you as this type of floors are considered to be harmful to the environment when disposed.

Concrete

This is also an easy to clean flooring option which does not cost much. However, concrete gives rise to an echo and, if proper insulation is not done, your neighbors would think that you are running a daycare while in fact you have only one child.
Another drawback of concrete is that it is hard and the chances of serious injuries caused by falls and the like are higher. This can be avoided by laying a kids mat on the floor.

Rubber

If your kids like the smell you are saved. Hope these tips will come in handy the next time you think of renovating the nursery or building a new one.
