INTERIOR STYLE

LIVING WITH YOUR PETS

DON’T LET THEM RUIN YOUR STYLE

If you’re a style conscious pet parent, you no longer have to settle for the mess they can often create in your home. Plenty of new products on the market allow you to forgo the daily mess from your fur or feather babies and keep your home looking chic. If you’re not sure where to start, check my tips out below to get your home back to looking stylish, whilst sharing it with your animal loved ones... Create a space of their own Much like ourselves, our pets like to have their own place to relax. If you don’t like the look of crates or climbing trees, try incorporating these features into the design of your home. For example, are there any unused corners or voids in your home that can serve as a

built- in Kitty scratching corner? With a bit of ingenuity, you can add a built- in space for your pet into end tables, entrance tables, kitchen cabinetry, and even bookcases! Feeding time Dogs and cats both should have bowls that are within neck height. These days, food bowls come in great looking styles that allow you to match with your décor. For a more bespoke solution, you could use an unused bottom drawer in your kitchen or even laundry area as a stow away feeding area. If you’re feeling handy, get some plywood, cut it down to the size of the drawer, cut holes big enough for the bottom of the bowls to sit in, but not big enough for the top lip of the bowl to fall into, paint with a weather- proof gloss paint

and glue or nail into your drawer for a special pull-out feeding bay. Friendly floors Floorboards are good options over carpets in most pet-friendly homes. Whilst they are generally easier to clean, certain floorboards can be more pet-proof than others. As a pet owner, you may want to opt for a floorboard that is long- lasting and scratch resistant. Vinyl flooring or tile floors are the most popular option as they are less likely to scratch and stain compared to hardwoods. They can also come in a variety of designs and styles to imitate stone or wood depending on your style preference. If your heart is still set on authentic hardwood flooring, there are some great, hardy engineered wood or wood-like tile options available as alternatives!

SIMON’S HOUSE

WINDOW TINTING IT’LL CHANGE EVERYTHING!

SIMON STEVENSON SIMONSHOUSE.COM.AU

I’ve lived in my house for 10 years with a whole wall of east facing windows. The summer heat in the room, even with blinds, was unbearable from first thing in the morning. I was getting my car windows tinted one day and spoke to Mal from Forest Window Tinting, he suggested getting my house windows done. I did a year and a half ago, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made! I can now have my blinds open all day long and enjoy the beautiful sunny days! I went with a reflective tint which has also given privacy during the day, the living room is bearable and my energy bills have been reduced. Even if you have blinds or

curtains, the heat gets in the room, but tint stops it at the glass before it gets in! Did you know that the windows and glass in your home are the biggest source of heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer? In addition to saving on energy bills, there are many other benefits to having your windows tinted, like protection against

glare and heat. It’s a whole lot easier to see my TV now too! Protection against sun damage and fading for your furniture and floors. And added privacy is definitely a bonus. With so many films available, there’ll be one to suit you. Clear tint offers protection but still allows you to keep your view, so there’s no change to the look of your home. Security and safety films help protect from break ins or severe weather by helping hold the glass together, making it stronger and less likely to shatter. Reflective and frosted tints give you more protection and privacy. You know what THAT means? You can dance around to ABBA and the neighbours won’t complain!
