Pets are a huge part of our lives, becoming a member of the family, and therefore a big part of our homes too! As pet owners it is important to invest in their wellbeing at home, and creating a pet friendly home is a fantastic way of doing this.

You can actually create a very trendy space that even your four legged friends can enjoy too. In this Shop the Look feature I’m going to share my top tips and ideas on how you can create a Pet Friendly Home design that doesn’t compromise on style!

Create a Pet Friendly Home

A pet friendly home is typically quite a relaxed home that features little cues towards the furry friends that live there too! The space is likely to have storage baskets, extra throw blankets draped on furniture and rugs. There may be extra jars in the kitchen for treats or a cabinet of pet hygiene products. This may sound like any other home, but these items will have been chosen with the pets in mind! 

Fun Facts:

Pet-friendly homes are those that have accessories or design considerations with pets in mind. As pets bring homeowners a huge amount of joy, the home and environment that the pet lives in should do the same for them too. Avoid using carpet or soft floor finishes as carpet harbors a lot of hair and bacteria. Leather furniture is extremely durable and highly recommended for those with pets as it can be cleaned easily. Always remember to purchase budget-friendly accessories that can be washed to ensure your home is clean and free of bacteria.

Did you know that keeping dogs as pets dates back to more than 30,000 years ago? This is 10,000 years before horses were domesticated!
