Ideally, your home is designed to maximize the comfort and convenience of you and your family. Unfortunately, many homes fail to take into account the other members of the family: our pets. Today, Handyman Connection of Knightdale will explain how to make your home more pet-friendly.
- Create a Pet-Friendly Entryway – You can create an entryway that prevents grime by choosing flooring that’s low maintenance, easy to clean, and impervious to dirt. Choices include ceramic or stone tiles, painted concrete, or laminate flooring. You’ll then need to paint the wall with satin, eggshell, or semigloss paint for spatter protection. Install wall hooks to keep leashes tangle-free and keep an old towel nearby to wipe muddy paws clean.
- Use Windows That Highlight Great Views – Your pets love a great view, so it helps if you have large windows around your home. Place pet-friendly furniture near that window so your pet can watch things outside. However, you need to make sure that they can’t escape, so you need good locks. Finally, you also need window treatments to cover the window in case your pet makes noise or becomes too interested in what’s happening outside.
- Arrange Furniture While Considering Your Pets – Consider using pet-friendly furniture and designating a pet play area where they can interact with their toys. You can use chairs and tables with rounded edges to reduce the risk of pet injury as well. You can also create spots where your dog or cat can lie down underneath or rest.
These are just a few of the ways you can make a home safer, more comfortable, and more secure for your pets. If you need more help, then Handyman Connection of Knightdale will be glad to assist you.
