For those of us who own pets, it’s impossible to imagine life without them. Pet owners would do anything to keep their four-legged family members healthy and happy, including letting them hang out on the sofa. Fortunately, there are pet-friendly couches that hide pet hair and are easy to clean. Take a look at our three favorites below.
What is the Best Fabric for a Sofa with Pets?
When it comes to pet hair, you can never go wrong with a microfiber fabric. If you’ve been searching for a pet-friendly sectional couch, there’s a lot to love about the Aiden 2-piece Sectional. Aside from being stylish, the microfiber cover is a great option for pet owners. Tight weave microfiber can prevent pet hair from sticking to the couch, but if pet hair does end up on the upholstery, it’s a breeze to clean off. Removing hair from synthetic fabrics is as simple as running the vacuum over the fabric or using a lint roller. You can also wipe it down with a wet cloth to easily remove any dirt.
Another plus, the tight weave of the microfiber makes it one of the best at standing up to cat claws. You and your furry best friend will love this super comfy and easy to clean sectional.
What Fabric is Best for Hiding Pet Hair?
Being a pet owner often means trying your best to hide pet hair by picking darker flooring (or lighter if you have a light-colored pet) and furniture that will make the hair blend in. An easy way to hide the appearance of pet hair is by choosing patterned fabric. The Constance Sofa is absolutely gorgeous. It achieves a traditional look thanks to its hand-carved wood frame and traditional upholstery. It’s a durable option, plus it comes with coordinating pillows that can be placed to keep pets off the couch.
You’ll also notice its beautiful fabric pattern. If you can’t commit to vacuuming the sofa regularly and want an option that’s low maintenance, this sofa is the one for you and your furry friend. The fabric pattern does a great job of camouflaging pet hair so it’s not a noticeable eyesore to your guests.
What Couch Material is Easiest to Clean?
If you want an easy-to-clean material, you’re going to want to go with a leather couch. Not only is it easy to wipe down, but real leather tends to be pretty durable. The Echo Brown 3 Pc. Leather Power Living Room is another great option for pet owners. While your pup may not appreciate the reclining seats, you certainly will. Keeping the Echo clean is a simple as wiping it down with a damp cloth. Using a leather conditioner once a month will keep this sectional looking new for years to come. The dark color will also do a great job of hiding hair if you have pets with dark fur. If you’re still worried about fur or claws, a blanket always makes a nice additional decoration and can keep your pet off the leather.
No matter how much you love your pets, dealing with their trail of fur can definitely put a strain on the relationship. Whether it’s dog or cat hair you’re up against, the three pieces above will make cleanup much easier while providing all the other benefits of high-quality furniture.
