Are you ready for the weekend? Does your home become sports central for your family and friends? That flat-screen television seemed like a good idea at the time, but now you’ve discovered that everyone you know wants to see the field as close to full-size as possible.
Realistically, you probably enjoy the crowd that comes to watch various games. It’s a high-energy experience with some of your favorite people. The challenge comes afterwards, when it’s time for clean-up.
Can your flooring handle the crowd? When it’s time to update your home, or if you’re planning for your next one, think about parties such as these when you choose your floors.
Low maintenance flooring includes tile and laminates. Wood floors can work well with the right coating to make spills easier to handle. Carpeting is still a possibility, but invest in the stain-proof options that can withstand messy events.
If it’s not time for new flooring, there are things you can do to protect the floors you have currently. First, choose snacks such as pretzels that will minimize damage from spills. Think about setting up a buffet for munchies, so that people can fill plates in a “safe zone.”
Finally, if you want a simple easy-clean solution for guests that get messy and throw things every time their team scores, invest in several bath sheets in a color similar to your flooring. Simply position them in the spill zone and let the chips fall as they may. You’ll be able to tidy up with a trip to the washing machine after your guests leave. Who doesn’t love an easy clean up?
