Pet Friendly Furniture Buying Guide

You love your pets; that goes without saying. However, that fact doesn't eliminate the inevitable byproducts of living with your furry companions. Shedding, scratching, and "accidents" can cause lasting damage to your furniture and test the bonds between you and your pet. This guide helps you shop for pet friendly furniture with your trusted sidekick in mind, ensuring you live a happy and stress-free life together.

Step 1: Know Your Pets

Only you know your pets and their habits, and this knowledge will go a long way in preventing your furniture from long-term, irreversible damage. As you begin, here are a few things to keep in mind.

Scratching

Cats or dogs who scratch can cause significant damage and leave lasting marks. Choose a tightly woven fabric to resist damage or a patterned one to hide marks.

Licking / Chewing

An obsessive licking habit can leave unattractive wet spots on your upholstery that can resemble water marks, while a chronic chewer can wreak havoc on exposed wood. Be wary of microfiber type fabrics, as they are more prone to water marks.

Shedding

Like it or not, your pet's hair will find your furniture. If your companion sheds, consider either a patterned fabric or one that matches your pet's coat.

Training

Puppies and kittens can be difficult to house train and messy accidents are bound to happen. Fabrics that are easily wiped will help in this case, as well as ones that don't retain odors.

Step 2: Choose the Right Fabric

Your upholstered pieces are the most vulnerable to pet behavior and damage. Leather, distressed leathers, and synthetic fabrics are, in most cases, the best choices for pets. Regardless, you'll save money, time, and stress just by choosing a fabric that both you and your pet will love.

Other Things to Consider

  • This should go without saying, but taking care of your pet will go a long way in preventing furniture damage. Regular bathing, clipping nails, and taking them out when they need to all contribute to a healthy lifestyle for you and your pet.
  • If accidents do happen, make sure to wipe them up as soon as possible to prevent permanent stains and odors.
  • If you really don't want to share your chair or sofa, consider furniture designed specifically for them. Dog beds and cat trees will give your pal a comfortable place to relax that they can have as their own.

  • If your cat loves to scratch or dog loves to chew, make sure they have scratching posts or toys nearby to steer them away from your furniture.
  • Slipcovers are a great way to not only protect your upholstery from your pets, but to also introduce a new look or color for your piece.
