Turn your home into a beautiful pet-friendly paradise with these simple-to-follow tips.
• Choose soft and cozy fabrics, like ultra suede and chenille.
• Pick wallpaper, tile, or paint finishes that can withstand pet activity. Choosing commercial-grade wallpaper or high gloss paint will also make your walls easier to clean and maintain.
• Tile or luxury vinyl tile flooring works well with pets as they last longer and are less prone to absorb a pet's funky odor. Carpets and wood flooring can get damaged easily by pet urine. If you must have natural wood flooring, opt for more durable options such as bamboo, beech, or recycled teak.
• Use household cleaners that state they are safe for use around furry friends. Pets are just as sensitive to VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) as humans are.
