Most every household has at least one pet – whether it be a dog, cat, or even a guinea pig. I would venture to say that most of us treat them just like family. And just like we would baby-proof our home for our children, we should pet-proof our home for our furry family members 🙂
DO Choose hard surfaces for your flooring (tile, wood, laminate, etc.)
Much easier to keep control of pet hair issues with hard surfaces versus carpet!
DON’T Purchase a light area rug if you have a pet with dark hair, and vice versa.
Although none of us like the thought of pet hair on our floor, it’s fairly unavoidable. Black pet hair on a white rug is never inviting…
DO Opt for leather and/or slipcovers.
Leather is easily wiped, slipcovers are perfect for throwing in the wash on your pet’s “bad” days.
DON’T Purchase a pet bed that doesn’t match your decor!
Pet bed can be found in many almost “designer” fabrics that will match any decor. Why not make your pet’s bed blend in so he can feel stylish as well? 🙂
