Home Decor Inspiration: Pets!
Do you love pets as much as we do? If so, you want the absolute best for them. They give you enough happiness, its the least you can do to give them a cozy place to lay their head at night. Not to mention, giving your pet some extra care can save your home decor in the long run. Here are some tips that will make both you and your pet much happier at home.
A Place to Eat
It's important to remember that pets are animals, and animals like to eat. Even if they are not always clean about it. Make it easier on you and your pet by setting up a designated place for your furry friend to eat. This doesn't mean just a bowl on the floor, either. Enhance the functionality of the space and save your floors by placing a mat under the food and water bowls. This will save your floors from water and stain damage while also giving your pet a clear spot to come and eat.Pink Ribbon Welcome Mat from Carpet One Floor & Home.
Durable, Stain Resistant Floors
Floors are one huge factor when it comes to owning a pet. Whether it's stained carpet or scratched wood, pets can do some serious damage to your floors. Invest in floors that were made with pet owners in mind such as Lees Carpet, Invisible Hardwood or Earthscapes Vinyl. All of these brands have stain repellent qualities and warranties to keep your peace of mind. It'll make a huge difference in the long run.
Place to Sleep
Similar to a place to eat, setting a designated place for your pet to sleep can be very beneficial to both your pet and your home. Purchase a dog bed, build a cubby or set out some old sheets for your pet to cuddle into at night. Setting this area will make for a much cleaner home. It will keep the pet hair off of your bed or family room couch and into the one area set aside for them. It will also make them happier to know there is one place they can go to sleep in peace at the end of the day. For more pet ideas, visit our Pinterest Board for Pet Decor.
