Pet-friendly Home Design: Interior Design Solutions for Pet Parents

If we want to learn how to do unconditional love, pets are the best teachers. 

As a pet parent, we can completely relate to the above statement. They are not just a dog or a cat at home. They are a part of our lives. They wait for us to come home each day and give us endless love. They are FAMILY.

At Sun Interiors, we respect your love for your four-legged family members. Now you have a pet-friendly home interior design to give your pets their space. Not only will it get your pet its dedicated space, but your house’s aesthetic will stay clean. In this blog post, we will share 8 tips with which you can design your modern house pet-friendly, 

Tips & Tricks To Designing a Pet’s Paradise

Designing a pet’s paradise while keeping the space functional is a tedious task. However, you can leave it up to professional designers and stay stress-free. 

Here are 8 home interior design ideas that you can consider:

1. All-in-One Pet Station

Pets need their own space as a cosy corner. Having an all-in-one pet station will give them their space while keeping your house clean. We can include pet-friendly furniture, beds, and toys for them to play with. 

Thus, keeping the space visually pleasing and functional at the same time.

2. Choose Pet-friendly Materials

Dogs and cats have a habit of scratching whatever they find around. To prevent them from ruining your furniture, we can incorporate furniture made of leather or microfiber.

Hence, maintaining the durability of the furniture.

3. Washable Fabrics

To prevent any stains on your couch, the best is to use washable, stain-resistant fabrics — such as aqua clean. Our designers can find the best fabrics that fit your home’s aesthetic.

4. Easy-to-Clean Flooring

When it comes to flooring, choose options that are scratch-resistant and easy to clean. Some options that are durable and easy to maintain are tile, laminate, and vinyl floors. These can withstand muddy pawprints and are quick to clean. 

5. Inviting, Warm Color Palette

Even with all the pet hair around, you don’t have to compromise with the vibe of your modern house design. We can incorporate neutral or dark colours to create a warm and inviting space.

6. Add Plenty of Toys & Scratch Posts

Adding plenty of toys and scratch posts in your pet’s home will keep them engaged and happy. Interactive toys like puzzle feeders or treat-dispensing toys can help stimulate their minds. 

Scratch posts can redirect their natural urge to scratch, keeping your furniture safe from any potential damage. These will also help them be playful in their pet home .

7. Consider Pet-Safe Plants

At Sun Interiors, we take care of every detail. Therefore, we will suggest adding only pet-friendly plants around your home interior design. Some examples include Boston ferns and spider plants. 

8. Cordless Blinds 

Pets love having a bath of sunlight in their room. A good choice for windows would be cordless blinds or sturdy shutters — to avoid any tangling hazards and damage from pets.
