Creating a convenient and functional dog-friendly home is easy, but your needs are paramount when you have a pet.
Today we want to share three interior design tips to help you seamlessly incorporate pet-friendly features into your home.
Then, we’ll show you how to choose suitable floors and create a functional and beautiful home.
Add some style to your living room.
Choosing a sofa based on pet comfort and convenience may be easy, but it may not match your ideas for your home’s interior design.
It would be best to consider how easily your pet’s fur will be handled and how well it can be cleaned when you buy soft furnishings.
This doesn’t always mean sacrificing style but using clever tools that allow you to clean up after your pets easily.
Stay away from fabrics that are magnets for dog hair, such as velvet, mohair, or corduroy – as these materials are easily damaged and make a great place to accumulate hair.
Instead, we recommend choosing smooth, hard-wearing materials for your house to keep your pets safe.
Choose natural colors that won’t easily show marks from claws or fur – perfect if your furry friend loves to lounge on your sofa.
If your pup is still young and is starting to chew things, consider swapping out wicker or other wood furniture for a sleeker metal option.
It’ll never taste as nice, and using modern, sophisticated pieces like shiny metal or brass will enhance your home.
It’s vital that your kitchen is practical, too – and it should look cool too.
If you have pets, you might not be able to clean your kitchen as quickly as you would like, so remembering how frequently your family members clean their homes is crucial.
Choose stainless steel or high-quality painted doors for modern and easy-to-clean kitchen cabinets.
They’re great for keeping your kitchen tidy and looking great.
Cabinets that are easy to use, clean, and durable will be indispensable in busy kitchens.
It’s helpful to have a space aside for your pets if that’s where they sleep and spend a lot of their time.
If you have some comfy furniture, such as a bed or a blanket for your dog and a few toys for your cat, it will help them feel comfortable and help you not worry about stepping over them while you prepare to cook a meal.
When choosing floor coverings for your living room, we recommend installing durable ceramic tiles.
Tiles are easy to clean, stain, and keep clean, and they’re also very hard-wearing, so it’s the perfect solution to help you keep your pets comfortable during the hot summer days.
In addition, many people love highly versatile and easy-to-clean furniture, so they can create interior designs that look sophisticated, chic, or sophisticated.
Finally, adding extra protection and appeal to your kitchen walls is accessible by placing decorative tiles on low-level kitchen areas where pets usually sleep and feed.
Make your bathroom their favorite place to bathe.
Dog lovers will know their beloved furry friends must be bathed quite often, so planning your bathroom design is essential.
For example, if you have the space, you can make your kitchen a big doggy-wash area – or, if you have it, you can even put up a big kitchen work area in the bathroom.
When this isn’t feasible, opting for an elevated bathtub can be a great way to give your pets an easy bath and get to those hard-to-reach areas.
This also helps you get a nice scrub on your back and knees.
If you have a traditional bathtub, adding a ladder or stepping up to the bathroom will help you bathe your dog easier – especially if you have older dogs or dogs who are less agile.
Protect floors and walls where people often have to shake things, like in the kitchen, by covering them with a water-resistant tile that will stand up to frequent soaking.
Spend a little money on a mat and a towel for your pet so the mess won’t affect your clothes.
You can easily make some simple changes to make your bathroom more pet-friendly.
You don’t have to spend thousands to get them. For example, if you have a large dog, purchase a floor mat or flooring to give your dog extra grip in the shower while cleaning his bowl.
You can find many different styles of flooring that are easy to install and provide a durable yet elegant appearance.
With some 68% of US households including a pet, making sure your home is a good fit for you and your pet is more important than ever.
We hope that by learning these tips, you can create living spaces that successfully blend function and style so that all family members are happy.
What is a pet-friendly home?
A pet-friendly home is a dwelling with no restrictions on owning or keeping pets.
This type of housing is typically found in apartments, condos, townhomes, and single-family homes.
Some pet-friendly homes may require a pet deposit or fee, but this is typically refundable if the pet does not cause any damage to the property.
How do I make my house dog friendly?
There are a few things you can do to make your house more dog friendly:
-Create a designated area for your dog with their bed, toys, and food/water bowls. This will help them feel comfortable and safe in their own space.
-Make sure all trash is properly disposed of and that there are no potential hazards within reach of your dog.
