Is there a little animal in your house? Most likely, yes. Pets are increasingly present in people’s homes and have already become a member of the family. So they also deserve a decorated space, don’t they? Come check out our tips.
20 tips to inspire and decorate your pet’s space
Bed, food, and toy are basic items in your pet’s “corner”, but you can invest a little more in decoration to make it even cozier. Let’s go, shall we?
1. Comfortable bed
It doesn’t matter if the bed is handmade or bought at the best pet shops. It needs to be soft and comfortable. If possible, engraved with the pet name to get more personalized. Oh, and don’t forget the pillows, okay?
2. Toys cannot be left out
Leave your pet’s favorite toys at their disposal so they can entertain themselves when they are home alone.
3. Use washable paint on the wall
The washable paint will make cleaning much easier, especially if your pet loves rubbing their paws on the wall.
4. Scratchers for cats
The scratcher is a great strategy to amuse and entertain your cat and still keep their nails sharp. They love it.
5. Cat hammocks
Cats, and some dogs, love the swinging of a hammock. And let’s agree that it’s really nice to see them enjoying this moment of rest.
6. Shelves to play with
Another object much appreciated by cats are the shelves fixed on the walls. They love to jump from one to another.
7. Different feeders
Forget that common bowl of food and water. Invest in decorative, personalized feeders that are much more beautiful and elegant.
8. Opening in the walls
Another very cool tip for those who have cats full of energy at home is to make openings in the wall, between one space and another so that the cat can walk around the way they like it most: with a lot of adrenaline.
How about coating a wall with a decorative wallpaper and making your pet’s “corner” totally differentiated?
10. Ceramic floor
Ceramic flooring is colder and helps pets cope with hot days.
11. How about a very soft rug?
You don’t need to invest in expensive rugs. It just needs to be comfortable. Prefer those with shorter fur and according to the size of the animal.
12. Bed at the master bedroom
Is your dog one of those who only sleeps close to you? Have a bed ready there for the time of rest.
13. Watch out for plants
Plants make any environment more pleasant, but be very careful because some species are a real poison for dogs and cats.
14. Mat underneath the feeder
It is an item you can’t forget. In addition to protecting the floor from food crumbs, it still makes the pet’s “corner” more charming.
15. Bed linen organizer
An organizer is a very useful organization object for pets as well. You can store blankets, toys, rugs, towels, toilet mats, and more.
16. Space for sunbathing
Dogs and cats love sunbathing. And if your pets stay at home for long periods of time, that space is key. Facilitate the entry of the sunlight and add a small rug there where the light focuses.
17. Paintings on the wall
Yes, paintings on the wall with pictures of the animal or things he likes to use or do are great decorative elements.
18. Food places, physiological needs and well-divided rest
Feeders, walks, and hygienic mats need to be well separated, even if they are in one space. The characteristic smell of the hygiene mat, for example, can affect the appetite and make them lose their enthusiasm for food.
19. Shelves for storing snacks
How about a suspended stand to store your pets’ food jars, cookies, and other snacks? It is a very practical tip and it makes it much easier to feed them.
20. Pet house
If your pet is more reserved, he may quite like a more closed house to sleep in. Cats, for example, love it. And you find a lot of elegant, personalized and very different houses from the traditional houses that we see out there.
With creativity and a lot of affection, it is possible to decorate the pet’s “corner” in a way that he and you will love.
