Ah, our pets. We love them. Even when the family dog digs a new hole in the backyard, then joyfully bursts through the door and rolls on the living room carpet leaving a wide swath of fresh, moist mud. Or when the cat presents a freshly-caught rodent or leaves a surprise somewhere because she didn’t like the scent of the new cat litter. As a general rule, you want a flooring surface that’s easy to clean, resists scratch marks, and provides a level of comfort for the entire family. The good news is that you needn’t sacrifice high-quality or elegant flooring options that will enhance the resale value and overall look of your home. There are numerous options that can do both.
