Having a pet in the home can be a joy, but it can also require more diligence when finding the perfect wood flooring. Today, we’re going to look into which hardwood flooring is best for your pet-friendly home, so follow along to find out more.

When you need the best wood flooring


Pet-friendly homes need a floor covering that can stand up to increased wear as well as occasional accidents or wet paw prints. For most homeowners, engineered hardwood is a better choice than solid hardwood flooring for several reasons.

Engineered hardwood is constructed with plywood layers topped with a natural solid wood veneer. A durable wear layer is added on the very top to protect against most daily wear, including scratches, scuffs, and dampness.

To further protect your hardwood floors, you can add a few area rugs or runners where traffic is highest to extend the lifespan. Of course, you'll get the added benefit of increased visuals as well.
