Pet-Friendly Home Decor

Let’s face it; our pets are part of the family. Designing a space or a home with four-legged family members in mind can be tricky. Not only can animals be tough on furniture and upholstery, sometimes, pet-centric essentials like dog crates or litter boxes can be major eyesores. Fortunately, there are a few tips and tricks to create a stylish, pet-friendly space. Here are a few of our favorites:


Double-duty pet furniture

Transform a mudroom or a laundry room into an attractive place to hold a dog crate. Make it more functional and part of the overall cozy feel of the space.






Install built-in feeding stations

If you have more than one pet, you’re probably dealing with several food and water bowls. To prevent clutter and mess, consider custom built-ins or low-level drawers for your pets.





Use pet-friendly performance materials

Of course, pets can wreak havoc on upholstery. So, it’s a good idea to utilize stain-resistant fabrics and scratch-resilient furniture.






Buy pet beds with washable covers

While many cozy pet beds keep furry friends off furniture, they can quickly turn into allergy-inducing, full-of-pet-hair surfaces pretty quickly. Be sure to purchase pet bedding with removable and washable covers.





Dog-only bathing area

Give your fur baby a touch of sophistication with a stylish dog shower-station. This is a perfect way to keep your pet clean and out of your shower.
