Pet-Friendly Flooring Options

Posted by creatingyourspace under Flooring

As homeowners, we love the blessings and joys pets bring to our households. Coming home to an energetic, loveable fur-ball is one of the best feelings in the world. However, as much as we love pets, they can have some destructive tendencies. Flooring can be an expensive home investment, and you want to get the most longevity out of it. So having a flooring that works well with your pet is ideal. Since each floor comes with its own sets of pros and cons, we are going to discuss the top pet-friendly floors for your home. Let’s take a look!


A pet-friendly floor needs to be water-resistant and very durable.  Tile is a great-looking option that is very versatile in design. Plus, it adds a luxurious look to any home while being pet-friendly. Additionally, your pet’s paws will not damage tile flooring, making it the ideal solution for your furry friends. Also, with tile, accidents can be easily cleaned. However, tile and its grout are porous. Unattended areas may lead to staining, so remember to treat accidents as quickly as possible. 

Luxury Vinyl Planking 

While many homeowners love hardwood for its warmth, it is not always the best choice of flooring for pets.  LVP is a great hardwood alternative since these high-resolution floorings are 100% waterproof. They can give your home the appearance of wood or tile with added durability. Plus, they are also great to be installed in basements and wet areas of your home, and most LVPs can withstand pets’ claws from damaging them as well. 

Sheet Vinyl 

Sheet vinyl is another great choice. While not as durable, it comes at a fraction of the price. Additionally, it is a waterproof floor, which can withstand many pet accidents. Sheet vinyl has come a long way with a more comforting and padded feel! 

Finding a durable flooring that you will love in your home is key. Try to stay away from easily-damaged floors or flooring that cannot withstand your households daily wear and tear. Choosing the perfect floors can be challenging, but with Carpets N More, we take the difficulty out of selecting the right floors. Be sure to visit or call us for more information.


Kid Friendly Floors

14763695_SIf you have kids, you know that they can be tough on your house, especially floors.  For a kid’s playroom or bedroom, there are plenty of flooring options that will please your style and stand up to the daily rigors of life with kids.  If your kids don’t have a designated playroom, having the right flooring in your living room and family room is even more key.  Once the toys and games are put away, you’ll want to feel like you are sitting in your room and not a play zone.

If you are putting in new flooring, talk with us about the best options for kids.  You can also take our “How I Live Quiz” to learn more about the best flooring options suitable for your lifestyle and home. There are many stain resistant and stain repellent carpets on the market. This means you can put carpet in a kids’ area and not fear every time something spills it will stain forever. Another option for carpeted rooms is to put a large area rug over the carpet to protect it.  Feel free to browse our area rug catalog to learn more.  As the kids get older, you can remove the area rug or swap it out for a new pattern or color. With this same idea in mind, carpet squares can be used and replaced if they get stained.

Hard surfaces like tile and stone are durable but might be too tough on little knees and elbows. Hardwood is good as is cork, which has a soft feeling under foot. Again, area rugs are your friends when it comes to protecting floors.

Kids and pets are probably the hardest on your floors.  Work with your flooring person to choose the best option that will be durable and stylish for years to come.
