3. Durable floors
The best floors for pets should be scratch and damage resistant while still being comfortable enough for your pet to walk on without slipping or falling. The best options include hardwood, bamboo, stone, cork, and vinyl. You should take your pet’s size, breed, and age into account when selecting floors to ensure that you have a durable option that will withstand the activity of even the most energetic pet.
4. Pet-friendly furniture
Ensure that your pets have their own furniture where they can rest, relax and sleep. This will allow you to avoid having to clean fur out of your good furniture all the time or having to share your bed with a large pet who takes up much of your space. There are various types of pet furniture including beds, baskets, crates, sofas, stairs, and others designed to ensure that your home is as pet-friendly as possible.
5. Windows with screens
Ensure that you invest in some tightly fitting screens on your windows if you live in a high-rise apartment or in an area with lots of traffic. This prevents pets from getting out of the house or falling from a high-up window.
