It may sound surprising, but many pet owners today decorate their homes with items used by both humans and animals.
For example, carpet is sometimes selected, instead of a hardwood floor, because it gives pets a soft surface on which to lie down after an energetic play session outdoors.
Another option I've seen are pet-friendly fabrics, which can be found in various patterns and colors to match any home décor.
And why not?
Owners use their pets as emotional support, so it makes perfect sense that their animals have access to calming spaces like living rooms and bedrooms with comfortable furniture that make them feel safe.
A dog's (or cat's) bed in a separate bedroom could fill this need as many pets naturally gravitate towards a particular place to sleep anyhow.
Some owners also choose outdoor accessories with their pets in mind. For instance, they decorate their backyards with cozy blankets suitable for both humans and animals.
Because pets are now viewed more like family members, owners are choosing to decorate their homes in a manner that brings greater happiness to their furry friends.
Although there are some limitations to this practice due to allergies or other health conditions (in humans), it can be a great way to express love and care for one's pet.
