The Best Flooring For Pets


What Is The Best Flooring For Pets?

Whether you’re the proud new mother of a “pandemic puppy,” or a seasoned fur-baby father, pets add a lot of love and a little mess to your home. Fur balls, paw prints, and trails of crumbs are the norm, so it’s important to choose a floor that can keep up! Our Flooring Experts rounded up a few of our top picks…

Hand Scraped Wood

Hand-scraped flooring creates an old-world, lived-in feeling within your home due to its rustic look and unique texture. This makes it ideal for homes with pets and works fabulously in high traffic areas. Small marks, scratches, and dents hide easily within the varied scrapes, and its inherently rough finish helps to mask dust and small debris such as pet hair and delicious treat particles.

Luxury Vinyl

This maintenance-free, waterproof product comes in a variety of styles with a depth and realism to suit any space and aesthetic. Whether you like the warmth of a wood-look plank, or the simplicity of a stone-look tile, luxury vinyl is hard wearing, durable, and extremely easy to care for. An invisible scratch, stain, and abrasion-resistant wear layer will protect the beauty of your floor against furry paws for years to come.


Laminate is another great option worth consideration. Similar to Luxury Vinyl flooring, laminate is available in wood and tile-look options. Laminate is extremely durable, and will stand up to high-traffic, pets and the moisture that comes with them.

Tile and Stone Flooring

Water-resistant, stain-resistant, and easy to clean — tile and stone flooring can hold up to whatever your pet dishes out. And if you forget to trim your pet’s nails, you don’t have to worry about them scratching or damaging your floors. Just remember to invest in an extra comfortable pet bed for nap time!
