It’s no secret that dogs love a good bed to curl up on and cats enjoy napping in the warmest spots, so why not elevate your home design with comfortable throws and rugs? Area rugs are especially great for rooms where you might have cold tile or slippery luxury vinyl installed, as it gives your pet a soft place to land. Typically, flatweave rugs made of synthetic materials like nylon or polyester make for the most pet-friendly rugs since they are durable and easy to clean.
