As the lighter days grow shorter and the sound of children playing in the sun starts to wane, it can only mean one thing: back-to-school season is back! With that in mind, we believe now is the perfect chance to refresh your flooring in time for Christmas.

For both parents and students, this time of year signifies a fresh start, new opportunities, and a chance to get organised for the year ahead. 

While backpacks, school supplies, and new clothes are often at the top of the back-to-school shopping list, there’s one important item that tends to be overlooked – flooring!

You might be wondering why you should consider new floors as part of your back-to-school preparations, so let’s explore the many reasons why investing in new flooring can be a smart decision for both your home and your family’s well-being.

Create a Healthy and Clean Environment

A new school year often means new germs and allergens being brought into your home. With old, worn-out floors, it’s much easier for dust, dirt, and allergens to accumulate, potentially leading to health issues for your family. 

New floors provide a fresh and clean foundation for your living spaces, making it easier to maintain a healthy environment. 

Whether you choose hardwood, laminate, or vinyl flooring from Frank’s, these options are often more resistant to allergens and can be easily cleaned and maintained.

Enhance Safety

Let’s face it, children are prone to accidents! Slippery or damaged flooring can increase the risk of slips, trips, and falls but installing new floors that is designed to be slip-resistant and in good condition can significantly reduce these risks. 

Plus, if you have young children who love to play on the floor, a soft and cushioned flooring option, such as carpet, can provide an extra layer of safety and comfort.

Improve Concentration and Learning

For students of all ages, a healthy learning environment is essential for academic success and the right flooring choice can impact the acoustics and overall atmosphere of a room. 

Carpets from Frank’s can help absorb sound and create a quieter space, making it easier for students to concentrate on their studies. 

New Flooring Can Boost Aesthetic Appeal

Aesthetic factors may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about back-to-school preparations, but the appearance of your home can have a significant impact on your family’s mood and overall well-being. 

New floors can transform the look of your home, giving it a fresh and inviting feel. Whether you opt for a classic hardwood look, modern laminate patterns, or stylish vinyl designs, your choice of flooring can set the tone for the entire house.

Enhance Resale Value

If you’re thinking long-term, investing in new floors is a smart move for homeowners. High quality, well-maintained flooring can increase the resale value of your home significantly. 

So, even if you’re not planning to move anytime soon, upgrading your flooring now can be a worthwhile investment that pays off in the future. This is because potential buyers often appreciate homes with new and attractive flooring, and it can be a major selling point.

New Flooring Can Simplify Maintenance

Scratches, stains, and wear-and-tear are common issues with aged flooring materials. However, new flooring options from Frank’s are designed with durability in mind, making them much easier to clean and maintain. 

Modern technology has produced floor materials that are not only beautiful but also resilient against the hustle and bustle of everyday life, making your life as a parent a little less stressful.

While it may not be the first item on your checklist, investing in new flooring can provide a wide range of benefits for your family. Get your floors down in time for Christmas!
