What is the Best Flooring for Pets?

Pets enrich lives in many ways, but they can also cause damage to the flooring in homes without intending to do so. Whether individuals have dogs or cats, there are some types of flooring that will best withstand claws, stains and accidents.


One of the hardest woods available, bamboo is highly durable, eco-friendly, and a sustainable resource. It holds up well to everyday wear and tear of pets and human foot traffic. The disadvantage is that’s its sensitive to moisture.


The material is naturally antimicrobial, water resistant, absorbs sound, and offers an eco-friendly option. It’s a comfortable surface for people and pets, but like all wood products, has the potential to sustain damage from claws.


Kuhn Flooring and Your Boca Raton Carpet InstallationFor those that want the high-end appearance of hardwood without the cost, laminate flooring is a good solution. It minimizes scratches, is durable, and resistant to stains and moisture. Another benefit is that it works to muffle sounds, won’t reflect the sounds of claws walking across the floor, and is easy to maintain. However, it has a very smooth surface that can be slippery for pet paws.

Luxury Vinyl

The flooring is a cost effective and durable option and can be obtained in planks or tiles that imitate the appearance of stone and hardwood. It provides a comfortable surface for people and pets to walk on, stays cool in summer, warm in winter, and is easy to clean. The biggest advantage is that it’s waterproof and highly resistant to scratches and stains. There’s also luxury vinyl that’s available with a waterproof backing designed specifically for pets.


Very durable and resistant to damage, tile, ceramic and porcelain tiles can be further enhanced by sealing and glazing to increase durability. It’s easy to clean and resistant to stains and moisture. The disadvantages are that tile can be slippery and result in falls, and pets will need a rug or bed to lay on as the material is cold. Older dogs and cats can experience difficulties rising from a prone position due to the slippery surface.
