Pet-Friendly Flooring Options
Finding flooring that’s the right fit for the entire family- including your dog and cat- is sometimes easier said than done. At Bastian Carpet One Floor & Home in Allentown, we, too, love our pets, and we know firsthand how important it is to find beautiful flooring that not only fits your vision, but is appropriate for your animal-friendly lifestyle as well.
Pets are an important part of our lives, and fortunately, modern innovation has made it possible to enjoy all the beautiful flooring looks you long for, without ever having to worry about life’s little “accidents” – even pet accidents!
Carpet and Luxury Vinyl
Waterproof carpet: it sounds like it’s too good to be true, doesn’t it? We can assure you, you’re not dreaming! While there once was a time when carpeting was something households with pets and children were advised to avoid, things have changed for the better. Nowadays, there are many, many brands and styles of pet-friendly carpets to choose from. Pet-friendly carpeting is available in all the colors, patterns, and textures that you love, but with additional features to make it compatible with your favorite four-legged friends. This carpeting is extremely durable, water-proof, and stain-resistant. Simply wipe stains away with a damp cloth- and go about your day!
Another wonderful option for pet-friendly flooring is luxury vinyl tile, or LVT. We love LVT for its limitless possibilities. LVT is available in a universe of nature-inspired textures and patterns, including varieties that look and feel just like natural hardwood, genuine ceramic tile, or organic stone. Unlike these coveted materials, however, LVT is crafted with a durable, man-made composition designed to keep beauty in and pet-stains out. Many types even have a waterproof core, so pet accidents and odors cannot “sink in."
