Protecting Your Sofas When You have Furry Friends

When it comes to choosing your sofas, you probably consider the size, the color and the layout very carefully! If you have pets that are allowed on the sofas (or sneak on when you aren’t looking) then you will also need to consider other factors as well. At Gibson Brothers Furniture Inc., we understand that many people consider their pets to be part of the family that just happen to be much furrier, and we want to help you find the right sofa and sofa protection to help you. Here are a few tips that can help protect your sofas when you have furry friends.

The best place to start with your sofas is at our furniture store! We can show you fabrics that are durable and easily cleaned, which is important for people with pets as well as those who have children at home. Finding the right sofas that can be easily cleaned will make your time inside far more enjoyable since the sofa will not turn into a source of anxiety and frustration.

If you want an extra layer of protection for your sofas, consider a throw placed strategically over your pet’s favorite place to lay down. This helps to protect your sofas from fur as well as muddy or dirty paw prints. If your cat is prone to scratching, putting scratching posts next to the sofa will encourage them to scratch in appropriate places.

These are just a few of the ideas that we have for protecting your sofas from your furry friends! We would love to hear what ideas you have. To learn more or to share your valuable insight, please give us a call today!
