Hardwood floors for a family room are ideal since they are easy to clean and add resale value to the home. It is important to note, however, that the wood needs to be refinished often if the family room gets a lot of foot traffic.
Tile is an aesthetically pleasing family room flooring option as well. The flooring is scratch resistant and waterproof, which works well for a large family or families with pets. Laminate is also a flooring material that does not easily scratch; however, standing water can ruin this material. Laminate is easy to clean, and it is impossible for pets to permanently stain it.
