Get Pet Friendly Tile For Your Next Flooring!
Our fur babies are just as much of a family member as anyone else, so let’s start considering them when we renovate our homes! If not trimmed regularly, pups and cats can have sharp nails that are at risk of damaging your floors. This isn’t there fault – it’s ours! It’s necessary for us to consider our lifestyles and the day-to-day activities that will be endured inside the home, and that includes the lives of our four-legged family members!
Tile is one of the best options when it comes to pet-friendly flooring. It is extremely durable, resistant to scratching and staining, and it is a breeze to clean up! Your pet’s nails simply don’t stand a chance! In addition to the natural benefits of tile, your animals will love the floor during the summer time, as it will maintain a cooler temperature for them to lay on and cool off!
Stone ties with tile for first place regarding best flooring for animals! Stone is a naturally hard surface that will not stain, scratch or damage easily (or at all). However, there are various amounts of stones out there, so it is important that you choose one that is known to be durable. Marble and travertine are soft stones that look elegant in your home and are great for countertops in your kitchen or bathroom, however, we recommend staying away from these options for your flooring. Harder material, such as granite, make for the perfect pet-friendly surface! Granite comes in a variety of textures and designs and is a perfectly durable material that can withstand the typical harsh interactions of the day-to-day lifestyle.
Luxury vinyl is a fanastic alternative to wood flooring for a pet-friendly environment. Wood, unfortunately, is more susceptible to scratching and damaging, however, luxury vinyl can mimic the rustic look of wooden panels and more! Vinyl flooring is easy on the wallet (budget friendly) and is very durable. It is resistant to scratch and tearing, and it holds up well against spills. You can even opt for waterproof vinyl to get the full, luxurious effect!
