With nail scratches and accidents, your floors are going to go through a lot. The experts at Floor Coverings International North York outline their favorite pet-friendly options below.


If you love the look of hardwood, laminate is a great alternative that will stand up well to pets! Laminate is much cheaper than hardwood, water resistant, and can be made with extra-durable finishes that resist wear and tear. Laminate can be made in almost any wood look, from distressed walnut to a glossy white oak.
