We are continuing our series Pet-Friendly Decorating Tips.
We love our dogs but between potty training and all that fur, it can be a little hard to try and decorate our homes around them. Not to mention somethings can be hazardous to their safety and health! Here are a few pet-friendly decorating tips for you and your home! One thing you can decorate your home with is rugs instead of carpet.
Floor It Hard
Question: Which flooring gives a room cache, offers furry pets a cool nap spot when the temps rise, cleans easily, and is even toenail-proof? Answer: Ceramic tile! Marble and other natural stones also supply great benefits, but show stains from pet vomit due to their porous nature (even when sealed.) Another option: paint concrete for a durable, attractive appearance. Of course, hardwood floors bring warmth to decor and are mop-and-vacuum-safe, but watch out for big dogs’ toenail scratches and warping from frequent cat urine accidents.
