According to a recent study, the number of work-at-home moms is around 29 percent, which is growing in numbers. For moms who wish to work in their home, it is important to have the right atmosphere so here is more on the best flooring for working, stay-at-home moms.
Flooring That is Durable
One of the most important factors in any type of flooring choice is its durability. Without flooring that will last a long time, money is wasted.
For a long-lasting choice that is easy to care for, tile is perfect for your floors. It is resistant to spills and repels stains and bacteria for a cleaner option. It is easy to keep clean too, which is perfect for when you have little ones around the house. In fact, for those of you with animals, it is a pet-friendly option as well.
Vinyl plank flooring is a great choice for a child’s playroom, reception area, kitchen, bathroom, laundry area or any other area guaranteed to go through a lot of wear and tear.
Vinyl comes in a variety of styles, colors, and design options which makes it easy to create a unique style, while still making your home space as a kid and work friendly as possible.
For another flooring idea that is incredibly durable, stone will allow you a classy aesthetic while giving you a myriad of design choices. From small mosaics to larger rectangles – the design ideas are as many as you can create.
Natural stone is also cut from real natural solid rock so it is an eco-friendly choice that is timeless, classy, and choices include marble, granite, slate, limestone, sandstone, porcelain, and travertine. Not all of these choices will break the bank either. In fact, some of the options like slate are relatively cheap and make a great option for those on a budget.
Flooring That is Quiet
Another option for work-at-home moms is flooring that is quiet. You need a place to work that has more peace and quiet and with children, that is sometimes hard to do no matter what. While the following options are not 100 percent silent, nothing is. However, these options create a more peaceful atmosphere that is conducive to a better working area.
An obvious alternative for less noise is carpeting. Carpeting absorbs more sound and makes less noise than stone, hardwood, or ceramic tile. Not only does it help soundproof a room due to its construction, but even the padding underneath absorbs more unwanted sound.
Luxury vinyl is perfect for sound reduction due to it having a cushioned, flexible surface as well as being backed by foam. For the best sound absorption, choose a quality vinyl and you will find a more soundless surface that is still comfortable in any home.
