NEKOFLOOR is a cat-friendly solid wood flooring, a comfortable living environment for both cats and people, even considering elderly cats. Unique brush stroke finishes and natural paint material make the flooring easy for cats underfoot.
The planks have many design features; natural paint finish safe for cats to lick, narrow grooves to prevent the nails from catching, high durability, and cushioning properties that absorb the impact of landing. Based on the idea that cats are an important family member, this flooring material was created with a "cats first" mindset. lt is also utilized in kindergartens and nursery schools.
