It goes without saying that flooring will experience wear and tear in every kind of home. However, when it comes to a busy household the level of use increases considerably which can put extra pressure on the material.

Whether you have kids running around playing games or pets roaming your living spaces, it’s a good idea to choose a material that is manufactured to last. 

At Frank’s, we have a huge range of durable options to choose from that are perfect for a busy household. Let’s take a look at our best matches!

Engineered wood flooring

For homes with high traffic areas, engineered wood from Frank’s is a fantastic choice.

Engineered wood is crafted using multiple layers of timber and finished with a solid wood veneer. This option is a brilliant way to achieve the look of solid oak flooring but without the high cost associated.

What’s more, engineered hardwood works well with underfloor heating and has a high tolerance to moisture and liquid spills.

Laminate flooring 

If you are in search of a solution that is hard wearing and affordable, laminate is a great choice. Laminate is one of the most popular flooring installations and our modern designs can withstand years of family wear and tear.

At Frank’s, we have laminate available in a variety of styles, colours and effects that work to create traditional and contemporary homes. Plus, laminate is easy to keep clean and works in every room in the house.

Vinyl flooring

Over the years, vinyl has come a long way since traditional home installations. There are now many luxury vinyl designs to choose from and this material is easy to maintain and clean too.

We have vinyl in stock to mimic other flooring types, such as wood, stone and tiles. It is ideal for bathrooms and kitchens especially, due to its water resistance capabilities. What’s more, it provides fantastic installation and will not scuff or stain.


While many busy family homes prefer wood and vinyl options, carpet is still a good choice for bedrooms and living spaces. Carpet remains a favourite due to the warmth it provides underfoot and the many styles and colours available.

At Frank’s, we have over 40,000 rolls of carpet to choose from, including synthetic and wool carpets or a mix of both. For improved peace of mind, we recommend avoiding light coloured carpet, especially in children’s bedrooms and entrances to your home.

Pop down to your local Frank’s and we’ll be happy to help you find the perfect flooring for your busy household.
