Pet-Friendly Furniture for Your Furry Friends

Pets are cherished family members that give us a sense of purpose. According to the University of Michigan survey on healthy aging, 64% of pet owners said their pets helped them stay active, while 60% reported that their pets helped them manage physical and emotional issues. With this in mind, it’s only fitting that both you and your furry friends enjoy the benefits of high-end pet-friendly furniture.

How to Create a Pet-Friendly Haven

To create the best space for you, identify what areas your pet frequently resides in. For starters, ask yourself this: where does your pet eat, sleep, and play? What areas are off-limits or potentially hazardous for active play? 

For example, if you have a cat that explores forgotten or underutilized spaces, you can transform these spaces into sanctuaries where your pets can relax. Thinking about your pet’s needs will allow you to maximize your layout and select furniture that best suits your aesthetic.

Choosing Pet-Friendly Furniture

When choosing the right furniture, a general rule of thumb is to invest in tightly woven fabrics that can withstand claws, dirt, and fur, such as microfiber, twill, and denim. Acrylic fabrics, typically used in outdoor furniture, are also excellent for pet-friendly interiors.

Leather is another pet-friendly fabric known for its versatility and longevity. Genuine, high-quality leather is resistant to scratches and punctures, making it an ideal choice for pet owners. Avoid synthetic leather, as it can flake and scratch easily from everyday use. 

Furthermore, furniture with ornate patterns and textures can mask pet stains and frequent shedding. Dark and earth-toned colors like charcoal, olive, mocha, and dark brown can help camouflage pet stains while maintaining a sophisticated look to your interior. 

Creating Designated Pet Spaces

When creating a comfortable environment for you and your pet, identify spaces in your home your pet prefers and brainstorm ways to maintain these areas. If you have an older dog that needs a quiet resting place, dedicate a room away from social spaces where you can place pet-friendly furniture, such as dog beds, couches, and ramps.

However, if you need to set boundaries to mitigate rough play, try purchasing free-standing gates, exercise pens, and crates. Wayfair offers a variety of pet-friendly furniture that elevates your interior, such as wooden dog kennels with drawers and even space for tabletop decorations. Be wary of the decorations placed in these pet spaces to prevent indoor accidents.

Organizing and Optimizing Storage

Another essential step for creating a pet-friendly home is incorporating storage to keep clutter at bay. Many pet storage furniture offers stylish space-saving solutions for toys, food, and hygiene items. The Ecoflex dog food pantry includes a pull-out drawer for bowls and storage compartments made from contemporary, non-toxic materials.

If you find yourself picking up toys and leashes often, consider investing in durable, easy-to-clean baskets for convenient storage. Collapsible wicker baskets are great for maintaining a polished interior while ensuring your pet doesn’t lose their favorite toys. You can also find elevated food bowls with built-in storage, which are perfect for storing food, treats, and medicine while promoting pet digestive health.

Integrating Pet-Friendly Furniture


Maintaining a clutter-free kitchen and dining room can be challenging with messy pets. To properly address this issue, try installing pet-friendly furniture like storage units and feeders. Automatic feeders will also provide the benefit of managing your pet’s routine food intake.

Additionally, you can place waterproof pet mats and pads to make mealtime cleanup more efficient while complementing your interior aesthetic. Opt for darker-colored mats to conceal mealtime stains.

Living Rooms and Playspaces

Living rooms provide space to nurture relationships with friends, family, and furry friends. Enhance this social space by incorporating pet-friendly furniture like enclosures and exercise pens. You can even find portable playpens with compact pop-up designs that can be hand-washed after play sessions.

Living rooms are ideal spaces for multi-level cat trees and villas. When prioritizing longevity and functionality, look for cat condos constructed with manufactured wood and metal. Heavy-duty playspaces made from non-skid particleboards will ensure a fun and stimulating environment for active pets. 

Looking to shield your furniture from stains and unwanted pet hair? You can find machine-washable covers with bolstered edges that protect your furniture and create a cozy resting spot. Alternatively, you can purchase orthopedic pet sofas that seamlessly integrate with your interior design. For outdoor resting areas, consider purchasing pet houses and beds with roofs to guarantee comfort.


Bedrooms provide security for pets that enjoy snuggling up with their owners. You can make bedtime more accessible for your pet by placing foam pet stairs at the front of your bed. However, if your companion prefers sleeping on the floor, convert under-bed storage areas into cozy spots for pet beds. Based on your pet’s needs, try finding beds with cushions for added comfort.


Bathrooms are ideal spaces for litter boxes as they are typically located in low-traffic areas, far from food and dishes. Investing in the latest litter-box technology can mask unwanted odors and make cleanup a breeze. For example, some brands make smart cat litter boxes in various colors to complement any household interior.

Maintaining your pet’s hygiene can also be achieved in the bathroom to ensure a pleasant grooming experience for you and your pet. Firstly, you’ll want to dedicate space in your bathroom for installing foldable tablets and grooming stations. Consider purchasing low-noise, electric grooming kits, which include pet clippers and vacuum suction.
