The best flooring for pets
Whether you’ve noticed the decline of your floor due to excited paws running around, or you’re planning for the arrival of your new pet, finding the right flooring is important. Just like your pet, your flooring choice will likely be with you for years to come, so choosing a durable yet stylish floor is essential. Here’s what you should go for.
Tile and stone
This type of flooring is extremely durable and is easy to clean. You don’t have to worry about scratch marks, and due to it being water and stain proof it is guaranteed to look good for longer.
Do bear in mind that these aren’t the most comfortable surfaces for your pet and so you should ensure that you provide them with something soft. Don’t panic: you can easily pick up pet accessories that will still suit your décor.
It’s no secret that pets have accidents, and whilst a soft fluffy carpet might feel good under your feet, it probably won’t look as good until your puppy masters toilet training. Waterproof laminate flooring, such as the options found here https://www.woodfloorwarehouse.co.uk/laminate-flooring/waterproof.html can be a good choice to allow quick and easy clean up should accidents occur.
Having a pet doesn’t mean that you need to stay away from wood floors, you just need to be careful with your choice. Always ensure that it is coated with a scratch-resistant finish or even let the scratches blend in if you go for a distressed look instead.
