If your dream is to live in your dream home and you have pets, here is how to design a pet-friendly home!

As we all know, our pets are fundamental members of our family. That is why they need spaces designed keeping their needs in mind.  

What does your animal enjoy?

First of all, it is important to ask yourself what your pet likes. Based on this it is possible to make a correct distribution of space.

First of all, it is important to ask yourself what your pet likes. Based on this it is possible to make a correct distribution of space.

If, for example, your dog or cat likes to move between the inside and outside of the house several times a day, it is a good idea to place dirt-collecting mats near the door. They are ideal for trying to keep your home as clean as possible.

A perfect solution for this need is also the Swing door line. This is a range of robust and reliable swing doors for dogs and cats. Available in various sizes, Swing doors are equipped with a useful Wind Stopper system that protects against draughts and drafts.

On the other hand, if your pet loves to spend his days in the open air, you should think of a canopy or patio and place his kennel in this setting to provide shelter for your four-legged friend. 

Besides this, the Argo dog kennel is made of sustainable Nordic pine wood. This means that it comes from forests that are managed fairly and responsibly according to strict environmental, social and economic standards.

For maximum comfort, the padded Jolly mattress can be placed inside the kennel, suitable for dogs of all sizes. Made of super-strong technical fabric, it is completely water-repellent, scratch-resistant and will not get damaged even after intensive use.

If, on the other hand, your four-legged friend likes to rest in the comfort of your sofa, thanks to the features mentioned above, Jolly is also perfect for protecting the fabric of your seats from scratches and wear.

Choosing the flooring and some useful tips

If you have pets, it is always better to stick to flooring solutions such as tiles, vinyl and resin. This way, scratches and imperfections will be hardly noticeable compared to, for example, a parquet floor.

The use of a carpet could be a good solution to cover any damage, except for the accumulation of dust. Carpets in fact retain a lot of dust and bacteria compared to floors alone. In addition to this, they are easily damaged.

To avoid damaging your home and protect the health of your pets, here are two simple tips:

– Avoid furniture with sharp edges;

– Do not place objects on tables or in areas where they can easily be knocked over.

Hair and cleaning

It is inevitable: animals lose their hair. For this reason, the risk of hair showing on furniture and upholstery is very high. How to avoid this problem?

  • Choosefabrics in darker shades than the animal.
  • Avoid fabrics such as velvet and linen in which animal hair tends to entangle more.
  • Choose stain-resistant fabrics that do not attract fur. Such as leather, which is easy to clean.

Acrylic or semi-gloss washable wall paint, on the other hand, is very practical. Dirty marks can be easily removed from these surfaces.

Otherwise, floors, curtains and blinds need regular vacuuming to keep harmful insects at bay. Regular bathing and brushing of dogs and cats will also minimise lint.

In conclusion, having a pet-friendly home really is possible. All it takes is a few simple things to create a space suitable for living together with our four-legged friends.
