Paw-Friendly Decorating: The Best Furniture Options for Pet Owners

Best couch for dog ownersHaving a pet doesn’t mean you have to throw your dream of keeping a stylish home out the window. But, keeping your furry friends confined to the yard or to certain rooms of your home is unrealistic. So, what’s a pet owner to do? With a few smart paw-friendly décor choices, both you and your pet can be happy and comfortable in every room of your home.


Choose a hard surface or pet proof carpet that limits moisture and odor absorption. These carpets are also chemically treated to resist stains, so you don’t have to worry too much about dirty paws. Selecting a carpet color the same shade as your pet’s fur color will help conceal shedding between vacuuming.


Invest in a good set of high-quality cotton sheets that will stand up to frequent washing.

If your pet sleeps in bed with you, consider upgrading to a King size bed; the extra space will allow everyone to get more sleep.


When designing a pet-friendly living room, think about pet hair resistant fabrics and materials. The best couches for dog owners are typically leather or a synthetic fiber like microfiber. Both are resistant to clingy pet hair and is easy to wipe down if hair does build up. Avoid throw pillows and blankets made of chenille, velvet, wool, linen, silk, and tweed, which are difficult to clean and will absorb pet smells.


Even with pet-friendly furniture, the occasional accident can happen. That’s why our PremiumPlus furniture protection plan covers pet stains on fabric or leather. Get the coverage and have peace of mind knowing your couch will be repaired or replaced if it gets accidentally damaged or stained.
