Top flooring picks for your furry friends

Pets quickly become endearing and important members of the family. They provide companionship, fun and unconditional love. However, the fun part can wear thin when our playful friends damage perfectly good flooring in the home.

It's worth exploring proactive solutions, including choosing appropriate flooring products that resist scratching, scraping and other damage caused by pets. Now is a good time to take a look at various flooring materials and investigate tips for keeping flooring in as-new condition. Read on to discover top flooring picks for living in harmony with your furry friends. 

Pet friendly vinyl, laminate and hybrid flooring options

Many people at first glance consider hardwood flooring the best type of flooring for pets. This isn't necessarily the case, as new flooring products are introducing homeowners to hardwearing hybrid-style flooring choices with plenty of showroom appeal. 

Times have moved on since the old days when grandmas vinyl flooring was in vogue, and today's products are in a whole other league. Here are a few options worth considering as the right flooring for your dog, cat or other critter.

VINYL FLOORING

Modern vinyl flooring is a great option for pet lovers. The material is surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk on. Luxury vinyl flooring is relatively scratch resistant and very easy to clean and maintain. In addition, Carpet Court offers a wide variety of tasteful designs to choose from.

LAMINATE FLOORING

This option has pros and cons, just like all designs. Some laminate flooring can be a little slippery for animals, particularly those that enjoy speeding down the hallway and around corners. This can be a little frustrating for some pets. You will also need to prepare for prompt and regular cleaning to avoid damage from spills, stains and little accidents. 

HYBRID FLOORING 

The number-one pet-friendly flooring choice according to many homeowners. Hybrid flooring combines the benefits of both vinyl and laminate materials. It is 100% waterproof and easy to maintain courtesy of a durable wear layer that resists scratching. Carpet Court offers a comprehensive warranty on hybrid flooring products. 

CARPET FLOORING 

Pets love carpet, but it isn't always a good option. Think cat-choking hairballs and molting dogs in summertime and you get the picture. Sharp claws also have a tendency to pick and pull at carpet fibres, an action that can quickly ruin perfectly good carpet. If you must insist on luxuriant carpet for your furry friends, consider low pile natural weaves for longevity.

Features to look for in a pet friendly floor

Here are a few pet friendly flooring tips, plus some ideas to ensure your perfect flooring stands the test of time.

  • Choose a hard flooring top layer product that is strong enough to resist your pet's nails. Hybrid flooring with tough exterior and softer underlay is a great option.
  • Choose flooring of a similar colour to your pet's fur. This will hide hairy shedding in between regular cleaning. 
  • Sweep, vacuum or mop regularly. Pet hair carries odours that can hang around for some time. Speak to Carpet Court experts regarding cleaning products for your floors.
  • Introduce your cat to its own scratching post so it doesn't try to sharpen nails on your precious flooring. 
  • Animal treats, bones and pet food are best eaten outside or away from new flooring. Enthusiastic animals tend to play with their food, potentially damaging your floor.  
  • Wash your pets regularly and clip their nails to lessen the potential for scratches, odours, and damage. 

Durable and scratch resistant flooring

Fortunately, Carpet Court stocks many durable flooring options that are both pet-friendly and stylish, and rigid core hybrid flooring ticks all the right boxes. This flooring offers ultimate dent, scratch and stain resistance, plus it's 100% waterproof.

Hybrid vinyl/laminate flooring is a cost-effective alternative to natural timber flooring, and is available in patterns and textures that realistically emulate timbers such as spotted gum, blackbutt and oak. Hybrid laminate/vinyl plank flooring won't buckle, swell or lose integrity when exposed to water bowl spills and splashes. This flooring is great for pet owners and busy families with active, energetic kids.

Hybrid flooring advantages

No matter what type of flooring you choose, you will be wanting it to look great for many years. This is where Carpet Court hybrid flooring comes into the picture. Here are some advantages for your home or business premises. 

  • Water and moisture resistant - Hybrid flooring is the perfect flooring option for pet friendly areas of the home. Made from waterproof materials, this flooring is designed and manufactured to withstand splashes and spills. 
  • Stain Resistant - Hybrid flooring is built with a strong wear layer surface barrier. The composite materials are hardwearing and resistant to staining. However, it's advisable to clean up asap to keep your flooring in as-new condition for longer. 
  • Comfort - Sitting or standing for long periods on hard surfaces can become uncomfortable for animals (and humans). Hybrid flooring with soft underlayment may be the solution you are looking for. 
  • Affordable - Hybrid flooring is a smart budget-conscious flooring choice compared to traditional hardwood or tiles. Carpet Court has everything you need to suit your style and budget. 
  • Easy cleaning - Pets are fun and beloved family members, but pet owners don't always have time and patience to deal with the mess. Easy-clean pet friendly hybrid flooring is the solution. 
  • Ease of Installation - DIY experts appreciate convenient ideas that deliver eye-catching results, and hybrid flooring for the home or business is a good example. If in doubt, the installation experts from Carpet Court can lay the flooring for you. 
  • Design Options - Hybrid vinyl flooring has evolved, and is now one of the most popular flooring choices in Australia. The designs and quality are so good you will find it hard to tell the difference from real hardwood flooring. 
  • Low noise levels - Playing with your pets is always fun, but there are times when quieter footfalls around the house are appreciated. Pet friendly hybrid flooring is acoustically soft for a more peaceful home. 

Easy to replace and install flooring

Pet friendly hybrid flooring is hard wearing, water resistant, and suitable for kitchens, dining rooms, living rooms, laundries and other potentially wet areas of the home. However, they are not indestructible. Fortunately, hybrid flooring planks use the click-lock system, making them convenient to lay and easy to replace. This is a cost-effective flooring solution for pet owners.
