The Top Flooring Options For Pet Owners

We know that your oh-so-loved pup or cat is oh-so-important in your life, but the amount of time they spend damaging or scratching up the floors is NOT!

Even if little Max or princess Leia is well trained, pets are prone to the occasional accident. This is why if you own a pet, you need to have long-lasting, easy-to-clean, and resilient flooring in your home.

Here's what to consider as a pet owner:

  • Scratch resistance: Pets can do much damage with their nails alone, so we suggest using a scratch-resistant floor.
  • Upkeep: We all know the struggle of using the vacuum cleaner with a dog around, so choosing a lower maintenance floor type will make the “sweep-up” and “mop-up” easier as a dog owner.
  • Water and stain resistance: If your pet is being potty-trained, you'll need a floor that won't easily ruin or stain to keep it looking (and smelling) fresh.

Keeping these things in mind will help you search for the right flooring! Here are our top flooring recommendations for pet owners this year.

Vinyl Flooring (LVT/LVP)

Luxury Vinyl Tile or Plank flooring is a timeless option that has been a go-to choice for pet owners. It's durable, cost-effective, and waterproof, making it an excellent choice for dog owners. Today's LVT/LVP options can replicate hardwood's look while providing a scratch-resistant, impervious surface.

Engineered Hardwood Flooring

If you're looking to add the look of natural hardwood floors to your home but are worried about wear and tear, engineered hardwood flooring is a brilliant, cost-effective alternative. Though engineered hardwood has slightly better performance in humid locations because of its plywood construction, any water and spills should be cleaned quickly to prevent long-term damage.

Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is known for its ability to withstand scratches due to its sturdiness, making it an excellent option for pet owners. As a pet owner, you may lean towards this option since laminate can withstand liquid spills and messes effectively.

While still being functional and trendy, we understand that your flooring type should reflect the overall ambiance in your space. It’s time to see which of these flooring options would look AND feel best in your home. We invite you to come see our selection of these different products in one of our showrooms!
