Best Pet Friendly Flooring Options
Cleaning up after pets doesn’t have to be a chore, and pet accidents don’t have to ruin your home. There are many flooring options that can beautify your home but still stand up to constant use by even large pets.
What Kind of Flooring is Good for Dogs?
If you love the look of hardwood, but would cringe every time your pet’s nails scrape across the surface – or panic at a potty accident, then bamboo flooring might be an ideal option. Bamboo has all of the beauty of wood, but is far hardier; a bamboo floor is likely to stand up to many years of use, even if you have multiple dogs or cats
Is Vinyl Flooring good for Dogs?
Affordable, attractive and durable vinyl tile can be used anywhere you’d place more pricey and vulnerable tile. Vinyl tiles are particularly helpful for pets, since there is no grout to stain and a damaged tile can be replaced in minutes; just peel it up and add the new one.
Scratch Resistant Flooring
In the right hands, painted concrete can become an attractive and almost impossible to damage flooring for your home. Concrete resists scratching and damage and allows for easy cleanup of accidents or even shed pet hair, making it an ideal choice for a stylish home with one or more pets.
For a modern home, painted concrete can be an inexpensive, pet-friendly, and fun option. Concrete that is painted or stained in a bright, cheery color won’t look stark. Pet nails will not scratch the surface, and accidents can be quickly cleaned up.
Pet Proof Rugs
Sisal or jute area rugs can go on top of your wood or other existing floor to prevent it from damage; these fibers are particularly easy to clean – just take the rug outside and give it a quick shake. If you don’t want to change your existing flooring, an area rug from natural fibers is an ideal starting point.
Best Flooring for Pets that have Accidents
Individual tiles that interlock to form the look of seamless wall to wall carpeting, but offer flexibility make it easy to have pets in any part of your home. If one carpet tile becomes soiled or damaged, you can simply swap it out for a new one.
The right flooring will be impervious to claws and nails, easy to clean and add an attractive design element to your home.
