Pets add so much love and joy to our lives here in Boca Raton. While we love our pets, they have the potential to wreak havoc on our flooring with scratches, accidents, and clawing. Here at Floor Coverings International Boca Raton, we think that flooring should be ideal for both your home and your pet. Our experts are here to help with four of the best flooring choices for pet owners in Boca Raton.
Luxury Vinyl Tile
Vinyl used to get a bad rap as the flooring you’d see in your grandma’s house. However, recent developments in technology have turned luxury vinyl tile into one of the best flooring choices for the home. Advanced 3D printers create unique imaging for each tile that can mimic any type of flooring like hardwood or stone. Luxury vinyl absorbs sound better than other flooring choices, so it will dampen the sounds of your pets’ nails. Resistant to spills and scratches, luxury vinyl is the top choice for pet owners.
Bamboo has the aesthetic beauty of hardwood but much higher durability. It’s naturally resilient, making it more resistant to moisture and scratching than typical hardwoods. Bamboo is the ideal choice for Boca Raton homeowners with pets who still want hardwood in their home. You can have the look and feel of hardwood but not worry about your furry friend ruining the floor by scratching or having an accident.
While carpet may not seem possible for pet owners, Berber is an excellent option. As a tightly woven looped carpet, it keeps liquid spills on the surface better than other carpets, making for easier cleanup if accidents happen. Berber can snag if your pets have long nails, so make sure they are regularly trimmed.
Stone tile has a naturally polished look that makes it simple to clean up if a spill or pet accident happens. The natural hardness of stone tile safeguards it against scratches and scuff marks. Stone tile can be cooler underfoot than other flooring choices and can in turn make your pets cold. Be sure to put down an area rug or two for your pets to sit or lay down on.
