We happen to be replacing our floors right now, it doesn’t really have anything to do with the puppy we’re getting this weekend, but because of the timing I started thinking. We’re replacing the carpet in our family room and office with laminate, and we were going to continue it into the mudroom, which will be the puppy’s domain, simply because it’s adjoining and the current flooring isn’t my favorite. We plan to crate train and eventually allow freedom within the mudroom when we aren’t home. I’m suddenly thinking we should forgo the laminate in there and use something else. I would love tile, but I know some tile and especially grout can be an issue with accidents. What kind of flooring do you prefer? If you have grout, how often do you have to seal it? If we decide to tile I have to decide today. The other rooms are almost done, and the old flooring is already ripped out, so I’d have to get a cheap box of vinyl plank or sheet vinyl or something to put down until we can tackle it in a couple of weeks.
Regardless, I know it really comes down to supervision and making sure accidents aren’t soaking on the floor, but I wonder if anyone has preferences.
