7 Stylish and Pet friendly Home Tips

For many people, pets are more than just animals—they’re members of the family. However, living with pets can sometimes mean sacrificing style in your home. From scratch marks on the furniture to toys scattered about, it’s easy to feel like you have to choose between a pet-friendly home and a stylish one. But with some creativity and a few key tips, you can create a pet-friendly home without sacrificing your personal sense of style.

  1. Start with the right materials

One of the most important things you can do when creating a pet-friendly home is to choose the right materials. Opt for furniture and flooring that are durable and easy to clean, such as leather or microfiber upholstery and hardwood or tile flooring. Avoid materials that are easily stained or damaged, such as silk or velvet.

2. Consider color and pattern

When it comes to decorating a pet-friendly home, color and pattern can be your best friends. Choose patterns and colors that will help to camouflage pet hair and stains. For example, a patterned rug or throw pillow can help hide small stains and add a pop of color to your space.

3. Create designated pet spaces

Creating designated spaces for your pets can help keep your home organized and stylish. A cozy dog bed tucked away in the corner or a built-in cat condo can add both function and style to your home.

4. Invest in stylish storage solutions

Toys, leashes, and other pet accessories can quickly clutter up your home. Investing in stylish storage solutions, such as a decorative basket or a chic storage ottoman, can help keep your pet’s belongings organized and out of sight.

5. Incorporate natural elements

Bringing natural elements into your home can help create a calming and inviting space for both you and your pets. Plants, natural wood accents, and stone elements can all help to create a pet-friendly home that feels both stylish and serene.

6. Embrace washable fabrics

When it comes to living with pets, washable fabrics are your best friend. Opt for throw pillows and slipcovers that can be easily removed and thrown in the washing machine, and choose fabrics that are easy to clean, such as cotton or polyester.

7. Choose pet-friendly accessories

Finally, don’t forget to choose pet-friendly accessories that are both stylish and functional. A chic dog leash holder or a decorative cat scratcher can add both function and style to your home.

Creating a pet-friendly home doesn’t mean sacrificing style. With a few key tips and some creativity, you can create a home that is both stylish and functional for you and your furry friends. By starting with the right materials, incorporating natural elements, and investing in stylish storage solutions, you can create a pet-friendly home that you and your pets will love.
