Pet lovers know a cat or dog is a member of the family. We want our pets to be comfortable, happy and feel safe. So the question is, can you still have a beautiful home as a pet owner, or is everything covered in fur and pet proof ugly? Good news fellow animal lovers, when considering your home décor, you no longer need to sacrifice your personal style to accommodate Fido and Fluffy! Everyone can be happy and you can be proud of your home too! Here are some ideas that will keep your personal style in tact while providing the products your pet will need to be happy too.
One of the biggest challenges pet owners face is the smell of their cats and dogs. Litter boxes, wet dogs and piddle accidents can be a homeowner’s worst nightmare. It is super important to clean up your pet’s mess as soon as it happens. One of the absolute best non-toxic pet specific cleaners on the market is Rocco and Roxie.
This product will leave your home smelling fresh while eliminating stains. Trust me, you will love this product.
If you must have high-end furniture, consider slipcovers as a way to protect your couch. A great tip for decorating with pets is to use a similar color on your couch that is your pet’s fur. If you have a grey tabby cat, consider a nice deep charcoal grey slipcover to camouflage the fur left behind after a catnap. Use bright throw pillows to add a pop of color to your room.
Pets are so popular that it is not surprising they have their own line of stylish products! Your cat or dog will love these aesthetically pleasing pieces, all while keeping a sense of your own personal style. Try accenting your home with these wool pet beds. Made specifically so your pet will feel safe and snugly, the shapes and colors are ideal for any home décor!
Use cat shelving that is specifically kitty friendly and looks great too! Invest in stainless steel pet dishes to keep your kitchen looking upgraded. With that, elevated dish holders can add a nice touch while removing dishes from the floor and minimizing food spill.
When choosing carpet, go with colors that will help mask your pet’s fur. Always get carpet that is easy to vacuum and clean. Keep your pet’s nails trimmed to avoid pulls in your carpet from the claws. Only use pet friendly, non-toxic rug cleaners for deeper cleaning and odor elimination.
A great place to browse for pet friendly home decorating ideas is Pinterest. If you are moving or re-decorating your entire home, it can be fun to start a decorating board. Either print out photos from Pinterest and catalogues and add them to a board, or start an electronic decorating board using the app Canva. The happier your pet is, the happier you will be and visa versa. Having a stylish home you and your fur family love can be great fun to create, and so comfortable to enjoy!
