Built to Last: The Most Durable Flooring for Your Home

The condition of your flooring may not be at the forefront of your mind, so you may not realize just how much wear and tear is happening to it. Floors withstand excited feet in ball cleats, muddy paws, spills, your family get-togethers, and more.

Years of use may have your flooring looking scratched or dull, possibly to the point you’re ready for an upgrade. If you live in a busy home, especially in homes with children or pets, it’s a good idea to invest in durable flooring. Durable flooring is built to last and will give you a low-maintenance, worry-free flooring.

But how do you know what flooring is the most durable and best for your home and lifestyle? Today’s flooring is built with the latest innovations in technology and is more durable than ever, giving you plenty of options, no matter your personal style or your budget.

The Floor Store is the Bay Area’s most trusted retailer for all your flooring needs, and we can help you find the perfect durable flooring for you, whether you want tile, luxury vinyl, laminate, or even carpet.

Tile Flooring

Tile is one of the most durable types of flooring, whether you choose porcelain, ceramic, or a natural stone. Each material is incredibly strong, but porcelain is denser, making it more resistant to higher-traffic areas. Tile will give you decades of resilience and resistance to stains, scratches, water, and wear and tear, while still looking beautiful. Since tile is available in a wide selection of colors, patterns, shapes, and sizes, you can create a look that is unique to you. Tile is low maintenance, easy to clean, and a great choice for a busy home.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring is another great durable option perfect for busy homes and high-traffic areas. Luxury vinyl plank and tile are both resistant to staining, scratching, wear and tear, and moisture. Both are available in beautiful options made to mimic the look of either natural wood or stone flooring. Since luxury vinyl is easy to clean and low maintenance, it is a worry-free flooring popular for busy homes, especially those with kids and pets. Plus, luxury vinyl is one of the most affordable choices, and it is one of the easiest to install.

Laminate Flooring

When you want attractive and budget-friendly, as well as durable flooring, laminate is another good choice. Designed to mimic the look of wood or stone, laminate is available in a wide variety of options. Laminate is also resistant to scratches, stains, fading, and wear and tear, perfect for the high-traffic areas of your home. It has the added bonus of being easy to maintain and easy to clean for a worry-free flooring that can hold up to a busy household, even those with kids and pets.


You may not immediately think of carpet when you think of durable flooring. But today’s carpet is stronger than ever, with several options made for high-traffic areas and homes with kids and pets. Carpet is made to stand up to a busy home and can handle everyday wear and tear and spills. Carpet adds comfort to your room, as well as style. It is great in areas such as your living room, where you want that touch of softness underfoot.
