Seattle — Interior designer Rebecca West of Seriously Happy Homes shares options for flooring, counters, and textiles that can be put to the test of your kids or grandkids and how to protect your home's interiors against food stains and possible stress areas.

Rebecca's suggestions:

LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) Flooring:

- Any flooring store, I prefer these two in Seattle:

- CFM (7 locations) (anyone can check out samples, but must be ordered through your contractor/installer)

- Vogels (north Seattle) (retail, sells to the public)

"Marble" Quartz:

- All the brands have beautiful options. The one I showed today was from Pental - with a showroom in South Seattle at 713 S Fidalgo St, Seattle, WA 98108

"Marble" porcelain tile:

Again, very easy to find now. I most often shop at:

Seattle Tile (north Seattle, sells to the public)

Art Tile (north Seattle, sells to the public)

and CFM (7 locations) (anyone can check out samples, but must be ordered through your contractor/installer): but even Lowes and Home Depot have great options.

Family friendly carpet tiles: Flor

(Note, I've tried cheaper brands, they don't hold up as well and are slippery!)

Performance fabrics:

I picked up my samples for the show at Designer Fabric Liquidations on Stone Way:, but even on a site like you can choose performance fabrics as an option.





Perennial Fabrics (probably the costliest)

QuakeHold / Museum Putty:

Picked it up at Lowes: regular and clear versions.
