Families with pets have different considerations when it comes to furnishing the home, such as resisting scratches, cleaning up after accidents and removing pet hairs. But you don't have to sacrifice style for the sake of your furry friends, according to cort.com. Simply use these tips to accommodate the paws and claws whilst still having an attractive - and durable - home:
Pick a pet-friendly material
Good choices include leather lounges, which are strong and do not attract pet hairs, and microfibre materials, as they are tightly-woven and stain-resistant fabrics which discourage scratching.
Try looking at outdoor furniture
Designed to endure weather conditions, they are generally also strong enough to prevent animals scratching and ruining the legs and seats.
Give pets their own fleece blanket
Fleece loves fur, so let your pet sit on the blanket and you'll find that most of their hair comes off on the fleece and not your furniture.
Finally, be practical and colour
Match your pet and furniture to disguise the pet hairs that will inevitably find their way onto your sofa and chairs.
