I didn't get to choose the floor coverings with my cheap house and land package, so I ended up with cheap carpet. And 6 months on, I'm already well fed up with it. Even though it is low pile synthetic, I am having trouble getting pet stains out with my carpet shampooer. And it already has multiple loose threads too.
So as soon as I get some money, I'm replacing it. I was going to do laminate as a cheap option, but my research shows that the cheap stuff won't cope with the pets either. It will get scratched and can't cope with moisture so toilet training foster pups would also be an issue. Has anyone had laminate with indoor dogs?
The best option seems to be bamboo. If I drive to Sydney, I can get some cheap deals and then find a tradie to lay it for me here. Our living areas are only 25m2. Does anyone have bamboo floors?
Any other suggestions for pet proof floors in the same price range? Bearing in mind the house is built on a concrete slab and it gets bloody cold here in winter.
