A guide to the best pet-friendly flooring
Choosing a flooring that will keep up with your busy lifestyle and will withstand the risk of damage from pets can be a challenge. From pet claws, household accidents and anything in-between, it’s important to have flooring that not only suits you but suits your pets too.
Top 3 pet-friendly flooring options
Luxury vinyl tile
Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are one of the best pet-friendly flooring options available. LVT offer a durable flooring solution that is incredibly long-lasting and is finished with a tough, scratch-resistant layer that has enough friction to prevent your pets from slipping over. This type of pet-friendly flooring is waterproof and easy to clean, and a good quality LVT will last a really long time.
As a pet-friendly flooring option, vinyl flooring is another excellent choice. Not only is vinyl easy to maintain and clean, but it performs well against dents and scratches. Most types of vinyl are water-resistant and, in some varieties, waterproof. The thicker the wear layer on the vinyl the more durability and resistance it provides.
Engineered wood flooring
If you desire the luxury of wood flooring that’s also compatible with pets, engineered wood flooring is an ideal choice. Engineered wood flooring is a type of hardwood flooring that can withstand a lot of wear and tear. This type of pet-friendly flooring is particularly great for owners of larger dogs due to the flooring’s durability and hard-wearing benefits.
