Pet friendly decor and design

Sat, 30 Jun 2012 by Polycorp

Your furry friends are part of your family. And just as you would decorate your place to accommodate your children, in-laws and personal style, you should do the same for your pets. Check out these pet friendly décor and design tips for Ravenscraig, the new home in Halifax NS community, by Polycorp.

  1. Use machine washable linens and comforters for your bed. These come in handy especially if your four legged friends plan on using your bed as their own.
  1. Purchase stain-resistant fabrics to avoid having your furniture ruined. Velvet, silk and similar textured materials are not recommended.
  1. Select upholstery that matches the color of your pet’s fur to hide shedding.
  1. Choose tile or hardwood for your floors instead of carpet – they’re easy to clean and stain resistant.
  1. Buy furniture just for your pets, toys for them to play with, a scratching post for your cats, and treats for them to eat. This helps distract them from scratching your furniture or chewing up other items in your new home in Halifax NS.
  1. Stylish bins or baskets for your pet’s toys and chic feeding stations that complement your décor will add pizzazz to your house.
  1. Store your breakables out of nose, paw and tail level. If your cats can jump high, be careful on what you place on top of your marble and quartz countertops.
  1. Brush and groom your pets on a regular basis to reduce shedding. Clip their nails often so they don’t mark up your floors.
  1. If you have a large dog that loves to jump into water or roll in the mud, consider installing waist-high dog bath in your garage.  It will save your floors and furniture, as well as your back.
  1. Vacuum regularly and keep your home clean and free of clutter.
