Pet friendly flooring


What to consider with pet friendly flooring:

One of the biggest issues with pets and floors is scratching, especially if you don’t keep nails trimmed. Even pets that don’t actively scratch floors can still leave their mark just by walking, running or jumping around. Pets also shed and occasionally forget that they’re housebroken.

But don’t fret, we have good news: Even with a scratchy, furry, accident-prone pet at home, it can still be possible to have beautiful floors. You just need to find the right type!

Fortunately, many of our durable flooring options are both pet-friendly and big on style, so you don’t need to pick one or the other. Whether you want the best flooring for dogs or the best flooring for cats, here are some options and considerations to keep in mind.

More than 6 in 10 of all U.S. households have a pet, but they can be tough on floors. To help you select a suitable floor to stand up to life with the animal members of your family, here’s an overview of some of the most popular types of flooring — and how each might hold up with dogs, cats and other furry friends.

Luxury vinyl tile

Luxury vinyl tile is an excellent choice for homes with furry companions. Our luxury flooring collection is one of the most resilient flooring products on the market featuring Diamond 10® Technology for long-lasting durability, easy cleaning and 100% waterproof planks which when exposed to water will not swell, buckle or lose integrity. See warranty for details. It comes in luxurious looks of wood, stone, slate and ceramic with a textured surface that’s not only convincingly real but provides slip resistance to padded paws.

Sheet vinyl

Vinyl sheet flooring is also a great option for homes with pets. This resilient flooring comes in a roll, so there are few seams and no grout, but you can still get highly realistic hardwood and natural stone styles. Two Armstrong collections, Duality™ Premium and CushionStep™ Better, also include Diamond 10® Technology for superior scratch, scuff and stain resistance. This innovative protective finish also repels soil and spills, making clean-up incredibly easy.

Vinyl tile

Vinyl tile flooring makes it easy to wipe away the little accidents left by housetraining puppies or the inevitable water bowl spills. And there’s no need to sacrifice style for the convenience of an easy-care surface.

Vinyl floor tiles come in a variety of patterns, colors and styles that closely resemble natural products like stone and ceramic tile.
