Tips for choosing pet-friendly furniture
You must be wondering what furniture you should buy that will suit your home interior and will also be pet friendly for your animals, in that case, we are here to give you some tips and help you chose the pet-friendly furniture for your pet.
1. Buy leather furniture
We know that leather can be a little expensive sometimes but it also comes with its benefits as the material of leather will be comforting for your pet and not only for your pet but also you. Most of the fabrics absorb the stains and it then becomes impossible to remove that stain from that piece of furniture but if you buy the leather sofa or couch you can easily wipe the stains off, in case your dog messes it up. Cleaning your pet’s hair or any dirt is also easy and less consuming from the leather sofa as you’ll only have to use a damp cloth to clean it. One of the other benefits of leather furniture is that it is highly durable; the claw of your pet won’t even puncture its surface because its material is too thick and long-lasting.
2. Buy furniture with zippers
Furniture with zippers are really easy to clean; all you have to do is take their cover out and wash it in your machine. Some couches and pillows have zippers and in case your pet gets it dirty you won’t have to throw it away as you can send them to the laundry. If you want to buy separate furniture for your pet you can also buy the furniture that is specifically designed for your pet and mostly that furniture does have zippers for your ease and they are also high quality.
3. Buy rugs that won’t wear out
Lying down on the rug or sleeping on it is very common for pets, they like to snuggle on a furry rug but one thing you need to keep in your mind before buying the rug is that it should be of high quality. If you notice the pattern of fibers of rugs, you must have noticed that rugs with tight fiber patterns are more durable while the rugs with loose fiber structure are easier to worn; out so pick your rug wisely.
What are the types of furniture fabrics most suitable for your pet?
Synthetic fabrics would be much more preferable for you in your home as they are very easy to clean and have non-absorbent qualities. Wool also has its benefits as it can wrap lost fur into its material. Canvas and handmade micro fiber couches will also be great furniture investment for your pet as they’re very comfortable. You can also opt for the dark shade furniture as it won’t show dirt clearly and you will not have to worry about cleaning the furniture all the time.
In case, you still want to be sure about the maintenance of your home furniture then you will have to train your pet well, teach your dog on which furniture it is allowed to sit and which not, after some time things will work according to your convenience.
Some other tips for buying pet-friendly furniture would involve giving your pet its own space, let them enjoy and be comfortable on their favorite piece of your furniture.
