Designing with Natural Stone for a Pet-Friendly Home

Marmol Export, U.S.A. shows a way to allow pets to live inside a home without sacrificing style

The company writes on its webpage: „Granite flooring is an excellent choice for pet owners who have dogs and cats. This durable flooring is scratch resistant and requires little maintenance. Granite is a natural stone that is available in a multitude of color varieties which makes it perfect for hiding imperfections and dog hair. Other natural stones such as travertine and marble are common choices for pet-friendly flooring, although they do require a bit more maintenance when compared to granite. Natural stone flooring should be sealed properly to avoid stains due to pet urine, spills and other accidents.

The cool natural stone tile flooring is a favorite of pets during the summer, since it helps them cool down while resting and lying on it. However, in the winter the floor can become too cold and uncomfortable for pets. Placing a stylish rug that coordinates with your décor is recommended. Pets will enjoy snuggling up on the area rug for hours…

You will want to remove any fabrics from your home that are magnets for pet hair such as velvet. There are plenty of fabrics that are pet-friendly and will make your home look exquisite. Leather is a durable material that can withstand the wear and tear of an energetic dog. It’s available in a wide range of colors that will surely be suitable for your interior décor goals…“
