Pet Decor We Love

Remodeling and Home Improvement

by PODS Posted on August 21, 2018

It’s safe to say our pets are full-on members of the family. While they may be a bit furrier and a little messier than we are —we think — we should spoil them anyway. We believe you shouldn’t have to compromise between a play palace for pets and bad home decor. That’s why we’ve compiled this swoon-worthy list to pet decor that every animal lover needs in their life. Let’s pounce right in.

Pet Lounging Furniture

A dog teepee is a cute dog decor addition to any living room or bedroom. Plus, your dog gets the lounging privacy that goes a long way in helping them feel comfortable and safe.

Art Inspired by Your Pet

Create custom pop art of your pets at Pop Your Pup. It couldn’t be easier. Just upload a pic of your furry friend and customize the rest, all online. Pet pop art is great for countertop frames or pin-boards!

Everyone knows how great Etsy is for fun, hand-crafted products. But what’s less known is that Etsy has some of the most unique pet decor and decorations around. Type “dog decor” into the search bar, and you’ll find some of our favorite pieces, like this minimalist puppy wall hanging — perfect for your living room or office space.

Cat lovers, we didn’t forget about you! There are tons of unique cat decor for you to choose from on Etsy as well. Like this colorful cat painting. It can certainly add a pop of color to your home. Let it be a centerpiece and decorate around it with throw pillows and lamps. Or … more cats. You can never have too many cats.

Food and Water Bowls

Collapsible food and water bowls are great for traveling, going to the park, or even everyday use.

Grab an elevated feeder with bowls for both food and water. They’re elegant, stable, and storage friendly. What’s your favorite color? What’s your dog’s favorite color? Pick out the one that’s right for you both!

cat decor


This mice and cheese hide-and-seek plush toy is the perfect puzzle to keep your pet occupied and, probably, very confused.

Plush toys not really their thing? Give your cat this 3-Level Tower Ball and Track for only $14 on Amazon and watch them run wild.

Yes, we all want to spoil our pets endlessly, and these are all great pet decor options. But we also want to have a cute and welcoming house. There are many design faux-pas when it comes to make your home pet friendly and gorgeous. Here are three to remember.

Don’t buy expensive rugs. Do we need to say it? Pets are messy! Even when you house-train and bathe them. When filling your home with loving critters, it’s best not to spend a lot of money on things they have access to 24/7. Namely, rugs. But if you do want that Persian rug for your Persian cat, at least use an anti-stain treatment first.

Opt for hard surface floors. Quick quiz. Which surface is the easiest to clean? Hard surface floors like tile and wood are great for pets, and you should consider them especially if you’re remodeling. Accidents are much easier to clean, plus your pets will love the option of a sturdier surface when lying on the floor.

Keep things off the floor as much as possible. Maintain your sanity and your unconditional love for your pet by giving them as little opportunity to destroy your house as possible. While it might be trendy to lay art pieces on the floor against the wall, it’s easy access for your pet who may have sharp nails and teeth.

The bottom line is that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style when it comes to making Fido and Whiskers feel at home, and some ideas may be better than others. There are many great options that might take some digging to find, but trust us: Stylish digs and stylish dogs are not mutually exclusive.

P.S. If you're moving with your pets, make sure the moving is as comfortable as possible for the little ones with our moving guide for pets.

My husband & I would like to consider moving to Jax from the Fl. Panhandle (Santa Rosa Beach). We moved to SRB from Miami because we retired and hated all the crime and LOTS of traffic & people in the 305, so we thought that a quieter beach town would be perfect but WRONG. This place is slammed with people all summer long.....tourists from 5-6 states come here and crowd the beaches and restaurants every single day for at least 90 days in the summer and 2-3 weeks in the spring making traffic horrible too, and PS, we don't have the roadways for all of these people. Anyhow......we'd like to see if Jacksonville is a good fit for us. We love shopping, culture, movie theatres, YMCA, biking and more. The one thing that I'd like to know is if there are "seasons" in Jax? We love cool/cold weather in the winter and it does get cold here in the Panhandle but LOTS of rain :-/ Would you say it gets into the 30's or even 40's at night in Jax? :-)) Thanks!

What would you say are the safest areas to live at in Jacksonville? They don’t give safety a very high rating. Thanks for any information you can provide.

Hello. Hello, I am 63 yrs.old. Hoping to relocate within the next couple of months while working from home so traffic won't be a problem. My 89 year old mom will accompany me. Any suggestions where to live?

Jacksonville has long been known as the working son among Florida's playboys. It has a very strong blue collar background whereas Miami, Tampa, and Orlando have been the main tourist spots for decades. Also, it doesn't have a very glamorous name and there's a Jacksonville in about every other state so you never know which one people are referring to. If I visit North Carolina and say I'm from Jacksonville they assume I mean the one in there state.

Thanks for all your great information everyone! I’m looking to rent an apartment for 6 months out of the year, as I live in PA and can’t stand the cold weather anymore. I too like the simple life and small town feel. If anyone has any suggestions, I’d appreciate it.
