3 Pet-Friendly Flooring Materials, Honolulu, Hawaii

Quality flooring is not only a crucial part of comfort in your home, but can also be an aesthetic centerpiece. However, your rambunctious pets could damage vulnerable floors, which is why you need to install something durable, like the following options. 

3 Best Flooring Types for Pets

1. Vinyl

Vinyl flooring is highly scratch-resistant, so it’ll hold up under dogs chasing each other around the home. The material also absorbs noise well, which will cut down on the clicking sounds of your pet’s nails. Vinyl can be crafted to mimic numerous wood and natural stone colors and patterns. You’ll enjoy the same design for half the price and won’t have to worry about your pets wearing it down.

2. Ceramic Tile

Glossy, cream-colored tile can create a sophisticated atmosphere, while faux-wood tiles are perfect for a warm, comfortable aesthetic. Tile holds up well against pets’ claws and is easy to clean when accidents occur. General maintenance can be completed with most household products, like water and vinegar. Tile also fits well in almost any room in the home, so you can be confident your pet is always on a safe surface.

3. Stone

Natural stones like marble have many of the same qualities as tile. They’re durable, stain and water-resistant, and can handle the wear and tear of a pet’s nails. Natural stone also retains cold temperatures, so when your pet comes in from outside, they’ll have a comfortable place to cool off. Stone surfaces are also easy to maintain and generally only require the occasional wash.
