Don’t worry peeps!! Today, we will discuss about smart ideas to stylishly pet proof your home.

1. Colors & Patterns – always look for rugs that have small patterns and are dark in color. Huge patterns will leave a lot of space for solid colors, which will easily not only accommodate pet hair (which you can find almost everywhere) but will also make stains visible. Dark colors will hide stains and dirt better.

2. Fabric – the kind of fabric you choose also to a great extent make your home pet proof. For example – if your pet is sitting on a normal fabric couch, it is prone to wear and tear coz of the big nails and incessant scratching habits of our beloved pets. However, if you use velvet fabric on the couch, it can be saved to a great extent as it is not a looped thread. It is cut in the rear like hair. So it gives almost no chance of damage as the fabric gives very little space to pets to hook their claws.

3. Befriend Ropes – it is a fact that pets love scratching especially the cats, they like to rub vertically. And this natural trait of scraping is beyond your control and you can’t smother them and take away this freedom from them. Try to wrap sisal ropes around the furniture legs or pipes & poles in your home. When the rope is frayed, untwist it and wrap a new rope again. Isn’t it easy!!
