Beautiful, safe and clean – the right flooring for living with pets

Font size   

Living with a dog or cat is a challenge for any home, particularly for the flooring. Its choice not only depends on the design and how easy it is to clean, but also on the animals‘ safety. Read here about how to find the suitable flooring.

For many of us, pets are best friends – but again and again we realise that the needs of both are, well, different when it comes to the living environment. A Bernese mountain dog, for instance, does not care whether it brings piles of mud and soil into the house after a long walk through the woods. And a Persian cat sees no problem in sharpening its claws on the carpet-covered steps instead of the cat tree. Well, that is just what our four-legged friends are like.

We can make life with our beloved pets a lot easier if we prevent this kind of problem right from the start – by choosing the right flooring. It is important to keep the needs of both humans and animals in mind. The former want a beautiful, comfortable and clean home, the latter need just as much comfort, but also a lot of space to move. This is why some floor coverings are more suitable than others.

By the way: What is appreciated by pet owners can also be of great benefit for parents…


Fed and happy - who cares about scraps of pet food on the floor? After all, they can quickly be wiped away on laminate. For laminate floors to be suitable for dogs a textured surface that allows animals to run around safely is essential. A laminate floor with an oak style that is on par with its natural model. The surface is almost indestructible. Stunningly beautiful and full of character: a parquet floor of oak in shabby look. As the surface is oiled, marks caused by the pets can often be repaired. The right flooring makes a vibrant family life easier - not just for dog owners. Parents appreciate resistant surfaces, too.
