Pet Proof Your Home
Pet-friendly furniture calls for forgiving fabrics and low-maintenance materials. Leather or even pleather furniture is durable and easy to clean. A simple wipe down and a quick vacuum is all you need to do! Any scratches you may encounter from your pet’s claws will add a little patina. On the other hand, synthetic fabrics withstand a lot of action, as they are difficult to stain and do not hold odors as much as natural fibers. With minimal wear and tear, you can easily remove accumulated hair with a lint brush. Look for fabrics such as microfiber and polyester.
Lay It Down
Your floors take a lot of abuse from your pet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t maximize your style and your pet’s comfort with a beautiful area rug. Look for synthetic blends such as polypropylene with intricate patterns or dark colours. They are wonderfully durable and hide stains like a breeze.
Invest In A Good Bed
Replace your pet’s favourite spot on the sofa with their very own comfortable landing pad! Not all pets will love their new bed right away, so it is important to keep their personality in mind. If they love to be with you at all times, consider placing it somewhere close to high traffic areas of your home. The more time your pet spends in their own bed, the less fur, scratches, stains, and odors you’ll find on your furniture.
