1. A Throne for a King / Queen
An essential part of pet friendly interior decor must surely be the addition of their own comfy pet bed.
Avoid designs that are multicolored and with childish patterns that could make the decoration of your house seem disconcerting. Opt for a more classic, a single color that combines better.
2. Pet-Friendly Kitchens
Pet-friendly interiors are all about keeping your space as tidy as possible, allowing that stunning new kitchen to glisten without unsightly doggy / kitty bowls smudging that perfect vision.
Avoid leaving food bowls out in plain sight and if you need to keep them in the area, give up a space under a shelf where you can slide and are easily accessible for when your pets also need to eat.

You need to avoid fabrics that are a magnet for pet hair e.g. velvet, mohair, corduroy, velor or chenille. Steer clear of any delicate materials that could be damaged by your adorable little friend e.g. silk Your best options can be smooth tapestries, leathers and synthetic fibers. Invest in quality textiles that will withstand the test of those claws!
