The Best You Can Get

  • Puzzle Floor

    Candace says: If you think choosing a wooden floor means choosing plank or strip shapes, think again. Puzzle Floor offers a very playful option: wood flooring in the form of large puzzle pieces. Go subtle by sticking with one stain, or mix it up for more visual interest. Best of all, Puzzle Floor’s wood is only sourced from Certified Managed Forests, which means that the wood used to make the floors is replaced with new trees.

    • 13 stain finishes to choose from
    • Can contribute credits toward LEED certification
    • Mix and match colors for added visual interest
    • Sourced from Certified Managed Forests
  • FLOR Modular Carpet Tile

    Candace says: FLOR is a floating floor, and hugs your floor’s surface with FLOR dots, which actually only stick to the bottom of the carpet tiles, so that they don’t interfere with the original floor’s finish. It’s easy to spend hours on their website, as there are so many groovy, stylish (and also sedate) options for mixing, matching, building the perfect modular carpet. Best of all—if you spill indelible ink or cherry cough syrup on it, you can simply remove that particular tile and replace it with a fresh one. Stain gone.

    FLOR has designated carpet styles for kids, but in addition to that, many of the offerings are so playful that they lend themselves to kids’ rooms.

    Their eco bona fides: FLOR makes its carpet tiles out of recyclable and renewable materials, uses renewable energy sources in the manufacture process, and when you’re done with your carpet, will pay to have it returned to them so that they can make it into new FLOR tiles.

    • Variety of options, from zany to Zen
    • Make an area rug or cover the whole floor
    • Completely recyclable
    • Floating floor surface
  • Yolo Colorhouse Interior Paint

    Candace says: Yolo Colorhouse has a tightly edited selection of colors that coordinate with each other. You can also opt for on their kid-geared Little Yolo line, with six colors that are both playful and chic. Best of all, you can buy their Pint-Sized color swatches (13” x 15”) and test out colors without relying on a tiny chip or buying a quart that will go to waste. Afterwards, kids can repurpose them as arts and crafts supplies.

    • Zero VOC
    • Washable finish
    • Certified by Green Seal
  • Haba Town Carpet

    Candace says: The German company Haba has super-exacting safety standards for their extensive line of toys and games, and they carry over to their fun collection of kids’ rugs. This Town Carpet coordinates with many colors and themes, is long lasting, and can be vacuumed or spot-cleaned with a damp cloth.

    • Gender neutral
    • Thick pile
    • Engaging motif
    • Meets or exceeds safety specs from the British Standards Institution and the American Society for Testing and Materials International
  • Amenity Home Deer Floor Pillow

    Candace says: This generously sized pillow lends a sweet touch to any child’s room, with lots of versatility and eco benefits. You can choose the filling; the soft eco-fill is made from recycled plastic bottles, or select kapok, a fiber from the seed pods of the kapok tree. Either filling is encased in an organic cotton shell. Whenever you want, you can reverse the cover to its other side, which is solid cocoa brown - which means that it can work in any other room in the house.

    • 100% hemp/organic cotton cover
    • Filled with eco-fill or kapok
    • Made with eco-friendly, water-based dyes
    • Reversible
    • 26” x 26”

You will be happy with any of these

Now that we’ve all become aware of the importance of healthy indoor environments, AFM Safecoat provides a time-tested way to cover the walls safely and beautifully with any of hundreds of color tone choices.
