Luxury vinyl flooring is a dog owner’s ‘best friend!’

Doggie mishaps of all types can happen at any time, but you won't become frazzled if you have a luxury vinyl plank floor. Spilled water bowls, muddy paws, and 'accidents' can be cleaned up quickly, and there's no damage to the floor. If you live in the Waltham, MA, area, Mal Elfman's of Waltham is the best place to find the latest luxury vinyl styles.

Most popular styles

While many luxury vinyl tile designs are available, most homeowners favor the stone look and wood-look styles. LVP mimics trendy wood species like oak, maple, and hickory, while LVT imitates stones like travertine, granite, marble, and wood. Textured styles, which may be preferable for pet paws, feel and look like the material they simulate.

Waterproof brands

The best LVP and LVT brands are waterproof, which means that planks and tiles won't peel, warp, or expand even when submerged in water for a lengthy period. In addition, these brands usually have a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. WPC flooring will serve you well, but SPC flooring, almost indestructible, is superior.


Luxury vinyl tile adapts to any flooring application because it can be installed using three different methods. Glue-down floors contrast loose-lay floors, constructed by butting planks and tiles together. Then your new floor can be disassembled later and relaid elsewhere if desired. Finally, floating floors are installed over the subfloor rather than attached.
