If you are one of the 6 in 10 households in the U.S. that has a family pet, then you likely already know your home needs flooring that can withstand several situations. Whether you are in the market for flooring or don’t know what to choose for an upcoming renovation, you may wonder if the popular, stylish luxury vinyl tile or luxury vinyl plank can get the job done. Can these installations hold up to cats running around or dogs playing together? Let’s go over a few reasons why easy-to-clean, scratch-resistant vinyl floors do indeed make for an ideal alternative.

Luxury vinyl plank (LVP)

Available in a stunning array of ceramic, slate, or wood-look styles, planks provide the design you want with tons of flexibility. Adorable pet paws will appreciate its slip resistance, while the textured surface creates an appearance that is sure to appeal to any homeowner. As one of the most resilient surfacing options manufactured, these 100% waterproof planks are not only anti-buckle and easy to maintain but also incredibly long-lasting. That means you don’t have to worry about having to redo your floors any time soon, even though your pets constantly scurry across its surface!

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT)

Another excellent choice for pet owners is the tile version of a vinyl installation. With superior stain and scuff resistance, they are ideal for any house with pets. Cleaning up is also a cinch, as these floors easily repel spills and soils – so pet accidents won’t be so problematic! All it takes is a quick and simple wipe to clean up water bowl spills or messes left by housetraining puppies. What’s more, the attractive design choices offer tons of styles, colors, and patterns to create the perfect, personalized room you desire.
