Tips for a pet friendly home
Every pet owner had difficulties when it comes to adapting the home décor in a way that satisfies him as well as his furry friend. Here are some tips of how to do this without sacrificing your sense of style.
First of all, let’s start with the flooring. Try to avoid carpet. In this case it is the most impractical type of flooring there is. Choose instead resilient flooring like tile, wood or even vinyl. Also try to avoid hardwood flooring because it scratches easily. Laminate flooring is a much better choice.
Next, the pet friendly furniture. This is a must have. Choose a type of furniture made from durable fabric. This will hide stains better and it is also more resilient. You should also consider wood and metal as options for some furniture pieces.
Now that we finished with that, let’s talk about the details, like patterns and colors. Avoid by any means the light colors, as well as the neutrals. Choose instead multicolored fabrics and patterns that help camouflage stains and pet hair. Also consider purchasing machine washable slipcovers. Try to keep breakable art work, sculptures and electronics out of reach for pets and be careful with the loose cords from computers and electronics.If you decide to have a pet in your home, at least try to make it happy.
