Michigan families spend a lot on pet products and services every year, and pet owners are looking for new ways to make life with animals easier, cleaner, and more stylish. Low maintenance is the key concept to keep in mind, since dirt and stains are inevitable with indoor animals or any busy household. Decorating for pet owners has become serious business, and we’re here to help with all your painting needs in Washtenaw and Oakland Counties!
Keep wall surfaces easy to clean by having a professional painter cover your walls in a satin, eggshell, or semi-gloss finish – it makes cleaning up after your furry friends a snap! Our painting contractors know that flat paint is not a good choice because it doesn’t hold up well to washing or scrubbing. Vinyl wallpapers are also very durable and easy to sponge down. When choosing wall color, remember that light-colored walls will show dirt very quickly. Consider a medium to dark shade or even a faux finish to help hide the grime between cleanings.
Take cues from your pets when choosing other items in your home as well. Select flooring and fabric colors that match your pet’s coat, so that you can effortlessly camouflage pet hair. Avoid displaying delicate accessories where pets can access them with a curious paw or a wagging tail. If you do have fragile treasures, put them on view up high in a curio or on a shelf. Also, put your focus on accessories that mount on the walls, such as paintings or sculptures that rest on hidden-mount shelves.
As family members, pets commonly share homes with pet owners. Responsible pet owners know that having indoor pets makes keeping a clean, safe home for animals and humans alike more of a challenge. However, with a little extra effort and the right resources, decorating a pet owners’ home can be rewarding and fun.
