We are thinking of redoing our kitchen/dining room/living room area with one flooring. Just got a 6th month old rescue GSD and he slobbers so much more than our old 13 year old. I have been researching flooring and there is a product called Allure which is like laminate but supposed to be waterproof. I would like to stay away from linoleum because we have it in there and it just doesn't have much to convince me to use it again. Any suggestions?
