What Are the Best Flooring Options for Households With Pets?

Upgrading your floors will significantly contribute to your home’s appeal and comfort. Before starting your project, an essential thing to consider is how your pets will do with the new flooring.

Continue reading to discover some of the best flooring options for households with pets. 

Cork

Known for its microbial properties and appeal, cork is a great option for pet owners. This material is less likely to grow bacteria, mold and other harmful microorganisms. It has excellent sound absorption capabilities, meaning it’s less likely to produce noise from your steps or your pet’s. 

Another great thing about cork is that it’s scratch-resistant. 

Tile and Stone

With tile and stone flooring, you don’t need to constantly worry about water damage, stains and maintenance. This is a top-tier option for families with pets, no matter the age of your fur babies. Besides its cost-effectiveness, it also offers excellent resistance to scratches and damage from your pets’ nails. 

High-Quality or Luxury Vinyl

Resembling real stone, tile or hardwood, luxury vinyl is ideal for homes with pets. Available in planks and tiles, it’s extremely durable, scratch-resistant and water-resistant. Some manufacturers even produce waterproof luxury vinyl. This flooring material is easy to clean, low-maintenance and soft underfoot. 

Engineered Hardwood

If you have pets, we don’t recommend getting hardwood flooring. However, if you love the appeal and warmth it gives, engineered hardwood is something you should consider. To avoid scratches, invest in planks with a thick veneer. A thick top layer can be sanded down and refinished multiple times.
