When pets live with us in our home (or we live in theirs as the case is with cats) there are some changes that will inevitably have to occur. Having pets living indoors doesn’t mean that we cannot have nice things anymore. Sometimes their items can be a great addition to your already existing décor. Take a look…
5 Ideas for pet-friendly décor
Instead of owning a plain old bookshelf, why not add some wood to build steps for kitty to enjoy all the way to the top? We all know they love climbing and keeping them busy will keep them out of trouble (we hope).
Dog house inside
Use a nook or an unused space under a staircase to build a dog house inside. They do like to have their privacy every now and then so let them have their own room.
Table for kitty
I saw an amazing design for a table that has a curved split down the middle where grass can be planted INTO THE TABLE. It then physically grows out of it. Cats love nature but we often opt to keep them indoors because they like to wander. This option gives them a bit of nature in the safety of their homes and it looks amazing too.
Pet bed floating shelves
Curved shelves on the wall with a soft and cozy cover could be the perfect little resting place for a four footed friend. They love to be in our company on occasion so placing these shelves in the living room or wherever we hang out will make them feel even more like family and hopefully keep them off our couches.
Wet pet pipeline
With some planning and someone who knows what they are doing to assist, you could make an amazing pipeline for your splashy friends. Some aquatic pets are very curious and they would love the freedom of going where you are, even if it’s just to check out what you are doing. It will also be an amazing experience for people who visit to have live turtles, prawns, fish or even snails moving around the house.
There are a plethora of ways in which you can combine your pet accessories and furniture with your décor and it could still look great if you do it properly but I know that if someone wants to invite a pet into their homes, they will find a way.
