Yes, carpets are OK for bedrooms and stairs to prevent noise but wood/laminate flooring is much better when you have animals. So easy to keep clean.

Re: New Flooring.

Thank you,Barry,Mags.

LD,I much prefer carpets if I'm honest,I don't find this floor easy to keep clean as jack is shedding hair constantly,...it is much more practical as you say,because if it gets muddy,wet,a quick wipe will bring it up as new...

Re: New Flooring.

When I first laid our living room floor a few years ago I was a bit disappointed. It was solid Oak but with an oiled finish, not varnished. Every little mark showed up on it originally and I was scared to move furniture due to scratching. Since then, I have re-oiled it a few times and is great now. It still gets the odd scratch but I just have to oil the area and the scratch magically disappears. It has also endured a few 'puppy accidents' which has not affected it at all.

Really easy to keep clean too.

Have a good look through the Amtico catalogue. Some of their flooring is very hard wearing and is used in commercial settings as well as domestic.

Re: New Flooring.

Pauline - that floor looks lovely and, I would imagine, is warmer than laminate - and quieter.

Realspeed - those puppies are so cute. Are all Afghan pups born black?
