If you have pets but love wood flooring for your remodel, we know you have some questions. But, of course, some products are better for this need than others, and we'll help you find the best.
Understanding the characteristics of each material gives you plenty of options. You can further customize each material for more pet friendliness too.
Engineered or solid hardwood?
Regarding attributes that cater to pets, engineered floors are an excellent choice. They're very durable and offer added protection against dampness and moisture.
These options are also easier and faster to install than solid hardwood flooring. Floating floors offer the quickest installation and provide a single-day installation.
The finish can make a big difference
The finish you choose can make a big difference, too, especially with pets in the home. Textured options can help resist or hide light scuffs, scratches, and wear.
Consider options like hand-scraped, vintage, and distressed finishes for excellent results. Your pet's nails are less like to damage a finish like this.
Add area rugs and runners
For added protection against pet traffic, consider adding a few runners and area rugs. This extended wood flooring protection is a great way to maintain the surface of your floors.
This is an excellent choice in areas where your pets have free reign. You'll get the best results when combined with the other protective features.
