A matte or brushed finish is recommended as it will forgive scratches better than a gloss finish. Vinyl planks are also an ultra strong and trendy product. Some can even be installed directly over an existing floor! These types of vinyl planks and tiles have been gaining fast popularity to renovate basements and games rooms.

Green, yellow, gray or white will introduce neutrality to the room. Wooden elements are also perfect. Animal themes and geometric shapes are also quite fun to add a youthful element to a child’s room. Note that a herringbone pattern can add a beautiful dynamic flow to your child’s bedroom.
7. Carpet: Synonymous with Softness
In a child's room, softness and comfort are required. Soft textures can be created with blankets and cushions made of fake fur or wool. But the floor can also be comfortable by incorporating an area rug. With short or long hairs, a carpeted area will certainly inspire comfort.
