Which timber flooring is greatest for dogs? Is man's best friend your wooden floor's worst enemy? Despite popular opinion, it isn't! There's a frequent misconception that dogs and wooden floors don't mix, but at North London Floor Sanding, we think that having a heartfelt buddy shouldn't get in the way of you and the wooden floor of your dreams.
Recent statistics show that more than a quarter of UK households own a puppy and we think there is no reason for all the dog lovers out there to miss out on getting the high-end look they want with high quality hardwood floors. There are lots of suitable possibilities for pet owners that are worried about their own floorboards getting damaged by their excitable pets. Of course, there are a few kinds of wooden flooring that are more dog-friendly compared to others.
FOR EASY-TO-MAINTAIN, WOOD FLOORS THAT WORK WITH YOUR DOGS WE RECOMMEND:
AVOIDING SOFTER WOODS WHEN YOU HAVE DOGS
The two Douglas Fir and Pine may make a gorgeous foundation for your inside, but equally are naturally warmer forests, which makes them unsuitable in a puppy owner's house. If it comes to the most appropriate species, we'd advocate hardwoods like Oak, European Ash, and Dutch Elm.
A textured or distressed flooring will make any scratches less noticeable. We recommend our Sawn & Brushed Collection These boards have been ring sawn throughout the width of the wood and wire brushed to supply a rustic, tactile finish that will hide scratches well.
