Designing for the Modern Dog

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design and Decorating, Family, Hints, Tips and Advice

As a society we spend billions on our beloved pets. For many of us, our pets are more than just cats and dogs, they are members of our families. Like our children, they come with a lot of stuff. Toys, beds, snacks, and clothes can take over. And yes, we’re still talking about pets. Luckily we can find storage and beds for our sweet furry friends that also match our sense of style and décor.

Decorating for the modern dog or cat is much easier today than it was a few years or decades ago. The dog bed that used to come in one style and a handful of colors is now available in a myriad of styles, colors and patterns. Choose a pet bed that fits in with your modern décor so it will blend in with the rest of the living room or bedroom. A pet bed is a must in a home with wood or tile floors as it provides a comfy place for mid-day naps that isn’t your favorite sofa or chair.

Storage is also key when decorating for a modern dog or cat. Toys and treats can take up a lot of drawer space or floor space. Find cute containers, boxes and baskets to store these must haves. Look for clean lines and modern patterns or stripes on these storage containers.

Living with a pet can be tough on your wood floors. Runners on stairs can protect wood stairs from claws and dirt. Area rugs and carpet can trap pet hair so make sure you have a good pet hair vacuum.

Now you are ready to live in style and harmony with your beloved furry companion.
