pet friendly homeShould you have a pet friendly home? Yes! Our homes are a place we can relax away from the daily grind of life with our family and friends. More often than not, we’re sharing our homes with cats, dogs, birds and more!

Many homeowners happily admit to being crazy about their pets and treating them like their best friend.

But like any BFF, your pets’ habits, belongings and decor can be a headache to live with.

Here’s some simple pet friendly home ideas to keep your home looking beautiful and your pets feeling happy and secure.

Pet friendly home ideas

Spring for a doggie/cat door

Spend the money on a nice-looking airtight one, and you’ll save you and your pet a lot of time and worry. Hire a handyman or builder to advise you on the best options for your home.

Even if your dog is toilet trained, your rug will collect dirt, hair and bacteria. That’s why a pet friendly home is better off with hard flooring.

Hirye a professional to replace your old carpet with new easy-to-clean vinyl, stone, tile or hardwood flooring.

If you’ve got a dog, keep their nails trimmed to minimise floor (and furniture) scratches.

Pick satin paint

Drooling or a shake after rain will stain walls painted with flat paint so hire a painter to repaint your walls with a lovely satin paint and stains from doggy drool on your walls will be a thing of the past.
