Carpet in AhwatukeeAs a parent, you probably appreciate floors that look good but are also practical, safe, and easy to clean. Here at Floor Coverings International Chandler-Gilbert, we want to help you find the right floors for your needs, so we’ve put together this list of some of our favorite flooring ideas for Ahwatukee families.

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is currently the fastest growing market in the flooring industry. This is because vinyl floors are not what they once were. Thanks to technological advancements, these floors can now be printed to look like high-end materials such as tile, stone, and wood, at a fraction of the cost. Vinyl is inexpensive, easy to install, very durable, and easy to clean. This makes it perfect for homes with busy, active families.


Carpet has long been a popular option for those with young children. When kids are small, they roll around on the floor and may fall as they learn to walk, run and play, so it is important to have a floor that is safe and comfortable. Soft, padded carpet is just the solution. Carpet does require more maintenance than other flooring types, but it offers warmth and comfort that you won’t find in any other flooring option.

Laminate Floors

Wood floors are beautiful and long lasting. However, they can be vulnerable to spills, scratches, and dents, which are difficult to avoid if you have kids around. Laminate is not only more affordable than real hardwood, it is also generally more resistant to water, scratches, and dents. If you love hardwood floors but worry about what your kids will do to them, try budget-friendly laminate instead.
