Best Pet Friendly Flooring Options
The range of choices for stylish, durable pet friendly flooring has never been greater. No matter what your style preference, you can find a material that will please your aesthetic sense as well as your budget.
Here are 5 top choices:
Vinyl Flooring: Available in seamless sheets or individual tiles, modern tile is nothing like your grandmother's "ugly linoleum." Look for patterns that mimic stone, or go graphic by alternating different color squares. The advantage of vinyl tile is that you can replace a single square if necessary without ripping out the entire floor. Today's attractive vinyl is strong enough to withstand pet nails, running and sliding, sand and mud, as well as occasional accidents. It's also super easy to vacuum or sweep up pet hair, and damp mopping doesn't faze it!
Bamboo: An eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to traditional wood flooring, bamboo is the choice of savvy homeowners who want flooring options that are as practical as they are trendy. Fast-growing and available in a variety of styles and tones, from formal to playful, bamboo floors are long-lasting and easy to care for.
Natural Rugs: Rugs of natural materials like jute or sisal can be the perfect option for making an existing wood or concrete floor pet friendly. Also, a rug warms the coldness of tile flooring, and provides a softer surface to stand on or for play. These light rugs are also easy to pick up and shake out, making them a great choice for a covered patio, or an enclosed porch or laundry room.
Laminate: Almost impervious to stains and spills, and unaffected by dog and cat nails, laminate flooring is a great choice for families with pets. It can be slippery, however, and some people don't like the "click-clack" sound that is typical with such floors. But for easy upkeep, laminate can't be beat -- and you can always add area rugs.
Carpet Tiles: Even if you have a pet that sheds mounds of hair, carpet tiles can be a good choice. Just as with vinyl tile, it is easy to pull up and replace a single square if one becomes damaged or stained. Carpet tiles can be a great choice for a den or playroom or if there's a toddler in the family.
One thing is certain: There is no reason not to have a stylish look with the variety of flooring options available!
