Pet-friendly carpet is child-friendly, too; this highly stain-resistant carpet covering is ideal for all active households.

While it may seem unconventional, you can find the carpet perfect for a homeowner with a houseful of kids by looking for a warranty covering pets. In addition, hard-to-stain carpeting that is easy to clean when spills occur makes life easy for parents.


Nylon is the most durable and popular carpet fiber, while 'newcomer' triexta is just as strong. In addition, Triexta naturally resists stains, while nylon is treated for stain resistance.

Choose a carpet made of one of these fibers if you want it to last many years, or pick less expensive polyester and replace it if needed as your children mature.


Padding is essential for carpet longevity and does much more than protect the carpeting above it and the subfloor below it. In addition, it provides cushioning, comfort, and warmth on chilly days.

Padding also helps keep a room at a pleasant temperature on hot days by absorbing heat from warm air, and just as importantly, it absorbs the shock of footsteps.
