If you are looking for flooring that works for both your family and your beloved pets, then the good news is that there are plenty of options at Floor Coverings International Hillsborough. Approximately forty percent of all American homes have at least one four-legged friend living with them, and Franklin Township is no exception. Let’s look at some of the best flooring options for pet owners.
Stone and Tile Flooring
For durability and maintenance, stone and tile floors are a great option. They resist water and stains and are very easy to clean. So, if your new puppy has an accident, or your furry friend leaves a trail of crumbs on the floor, it is easy to clean and you don’t have to worry about any damage to your floors. Plus, stone and tile flooring are versatile and look amazing in any room.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring
If your heart is set on hardwood flooring, the good news is that pets and hardwoods can coexist. The key is to go with engineered hardwood flooring. Try to choose one with a high Janka test rating like white oak or Brazilian cherry. These hardwoods are more durable and less likely leave marks from untrimmed paws. You can also choose a look that is distressed, or more “rustic” so that if you do get a mark or two on the floor, it will blend right in.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
If affordability and easy maintenance are your top concerns, you should definitely consider luxury vinyl floors. Luxury vinyl is available in a wide variety of styles at an affordable price tag. Best of all, vinyl resists water and staining, so it is hard for your pets to damage it and easy for you to clean up.
