There are always going to be some areas of your home that are more “high-traffic” than others, it’s inevitable.

Out of all the areas in your home, the busiest areas are usually the entryway or foyer, mudroom, kitchen, and hallways. These areas are going to need flooring that is durable, easy to clean, and ideally scratch resistant. It might seem like a lot to ask for but there are a couple of excellent flooring options that will be able to handle all of that!

Tile Flooring

Tile flooring is one of the best options for high-traffic areas in your home. It’s a scratch-resistant, durable, and easy to clean option that comes in a variety of styles. Hardwood floors are popular but don’t handle the abuse of busy families very well. Going with a wood-look tile option can give you the hardwood vibe that you’re going for without the added maintenance.

Luxury Vinyl

Luxury vinyl flooring is another great option for high-traffic areas. If you don’t want to break the bank with tile flooring, luxury vinyl is often a more budget-friendly alternative. It offers a softer feeling than tile while being water-resistant and coming in a huge selection of styles. Many luxury vinyl options are even rated to hold up to commercial use!

Bad High-Traffic Flooring

While we love the soft, comforting feeling of carpet, it’s not the right choice for high traffic areas. You’ll likely wear down the carpet fairly quickly and be constantly cleaning. If you love the look and feel of carpet, try adding an area rug to those high-traffic areas! It’s much easier to remove and clean whenever necessary.
