Pet-Friendly Home Renovations

Pet-Friendly Home Renovations

Many of us are huge pet lovers, and love and adore our own pets at home. As some people would say their pets are like their children, we want to do everything we possibly can to make sure they are safe and healthy at home. There are many simple home renovations that can take place to improve your pet’s life. Green Design Home Services, a general remodeling company, will share with you tips on how to make your house animal friendly.

Simple Renovations

The first thing to consider is the flooring of your home. Since your dogs and cats may have long nails and claws, they can easily scratch your carpets and have their nails getting stuck on them, potentially causing them pain and damage. The best alternative solution for your pets to walk comfortably on the floor of your home is to install wood floors, tile, or marble. These floors are smooth and will allow your dog to enjoy their time at home without worrying about them. Plus, these type of floors are much easier to clean, and all of us pet owners know how dirty our animals can get from being outdoors. Simply brushing over your new wood or tile floors with a damp rag or a vacuum/broom will do just the trick to keep them spotless and shiny.

Next, renovating your kitchen space and building bigger cabinets and a pantry will be much more beneficial to you and your pets. Storing away human food in places out of reach of your animals can save them from potentially falling ill after eating something they should not have eaten. This way, you do not need to worry about your pet scarfing through your leftovers after you clear the dinner table. By adding more cabinets, you also make more room for your kitchen essentials, making your space look cleaner and bigger.

Lastly, a room addition for your pet can be a good idea. For example, if you have cats, then having their toys and equipment in a separate room can allow them to play freely while giving you and your family some privacy. Plus, having a room addition will boost the value of your home, so you get the best of both worlds!

There are many alternative solutions that can be done to your home to help your pets stay healthy and live a good lifestyle. For more information on home renovations, give Green Design Home Services a call today!
