As the back-to-school season kicks off and families start to get into that school year groove, it's critical to make sure your home is as durable and safe as possible. This means making choices about durable flooring for entryways, foyers, and hallways. Countless options are available on the market today, but one of our favorites is LVP or Luxury Vinyl Plank. We love this durable flooring option because it has a number of benefits, including being durable against wear and tear from children, easy to clean with little need for special cleaners or treatments, spill-resistant, and so much more! Let's dive into a few flooring options below that we think are perfect for back-to-school.

LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank)

LVP is a durable vinyl flooring option that has the look of a natural wood plank. This durable flooring will make any entryway, foyer, or hallway feel like a cozy home and still be durable for those little feet running through your house on their way to or from school each day! Luxury vinyl plank flooring is perfect because it comes in different colors, so you can choose one that matches the color scheme of your own personal style, whether traditional, cottage, or modern.

LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tile)

LVT is durable vinyl flooring that comes in different colors and sizes to match your style. This durable option makes for a perfect entryway, foyer, or hallway because it is easy to clean with little need for maintenance or cleaners! It's also durable against wear and tear from children and is spill, scuff, and water-resistant.

A Word On Vinyl Flooring

It may be tempting to think of vinyl floors as cheap and inferior quality, but this couldn't be more untrue! Vinyl has been used since World War II by commercial businesses like grocery stores, factories, hospitals - you name it. Today there are many types of vinyl, including the two luxury options we mentioned above. While the names sound like they may break the bank, luxury refers more to the look than the price tag!

Ceramic Tile Flooring

A durable flooring option that will withstand the test of time is ceramic tile. It's durable against scuffs, scratches, and spills! Ceramic tiles come in many colors to match any style. They are also available with a textured surface for extra durability - perfect for hallways or other high traffic areas where children may be running around at any time! The number of colors and design options has grown exponentially over time, so ceramic tile is an option you should consider for your entryway.
