Home Furnishings for Pampered Pets

Back To Inspiration

Everyone enjoys a relaxing resort vacation, but for many they’re in shorter supply these days. That means for pets, too. Pet resorts have been popping up across the U.S. for a while now, but with many of us traveling less in 2020, a spa retreat for your pet just may not have made the list from a budget or risk perspective. But if luxury grooming services, premium doggy daycare, and high-end pet retreats aren’t in your budget, don’t worry. A few additions to your home furnishings will make any room in your house the perfect place to pamper canine companions or feline friends (and maybe a nice spot for humans to relax, too). A TV stand with a PanoGlow™ electric fireplace from ClassicFlame® is great example of that kind of spot. Check out our best tips for creating resort-style comforts for your pets at home.

Home Furnishings to Keep Your Pet Warm

There’s no doubt that pets love to be cozy. After a walk on a crisp (or downright chilly) fall morning, you may see your dog or cat curled up near a heat vent to soak up some extra warmth. Offer them a more comfortable place to snuggle and get toasty with a safe, attractive electric fireplace or electric stove heater (like the Duraflame Infragen 3D Electric Stove Heater shown entrancing a feline admirer below).

With the ClassicFlame® Artesian Wall Mantel Electric Fireplace (seen below), your furry pal will love joining you for a binge-watching session or movie marathon. The included fireplace delivers a 5,200 BTU output to keep the viewing area warm and inviting when cold weather strikes. Your pet may also enjoy the relaxing effect of dancing flames the same way you do. Thanks to patent-pending 3D Flame® Effect technology, you can both sit back and watch realistic dancing flames. Five adjustable brightness and speed settings let you create a custom look for the ultimate in relaxation.

Beat the Lonely Pet Blues

Your pet is happiest on the days you spend together. As much as you’d like to be available for them all the time, even while many of us are working from home these days, often there’s no avoiding work meetings, school, and other commitments. Some pets will use this alone time to catch up on napping or watch the wildlife outside your window. Others, however, are more prone to separation anxiety. For these pets, leaving a television on for background noise creates the illusion of people in the house to help them feel less alone.

To protect your display when pets are home alone, choose a TV stand designed to safely hold your large flat-screen. This keeps the TV stable to avoid tipping and other hazards. The Emelia TV Stand works well for most TVs up to 50” and offers a chic look with stylish X-frame paneling. An integrated cable management system prevents tangles and keeps cords out of sight, making chewing less tempting for young puppies. The stand also offers plenty of storage, featuring shelves for A/V components and side cabinets with stylish dual X-frame paneling on the doors.

Anxious pets may also chew on anything left out, from remotes and game controllers to your favorite decorative treasures. The Nancy TV Stand for TVs up to 60” solves this dilemma with side cabinets featuring glass doors. Glass allows a quick view of the items inside the cabinets and offers a charming farmhouse aesthetic. Keep a pack of pet treats inside, and you can reward your pup for his good behavior while you were out for the day.

Make Pet Monitoring Easy

With a pet camera, you never have to leave your pets truly alone. These devices let owners check in to make sure pets are happy, safe, and content throughout the day. You can even choose an automated treat dispenser that lets you dole out snacks before you get home.

Ensure secure placement for your pet tech with a stylish accent cabinet. Big on style and storage alike, these cabinets are available in a wide range of décor aesthetics to match your current design. Take the Dumas 2-Door Accent Cabinet. Paneled doors create a cool, beachy feel and provide plenty of room for brushes, bowls, toys, and other pet essentials. Place your camera on top for a clear view of your pet’s daily activities. You can even keep it powered throughout the day with one of the cabinet’s convenient USB charging ports.
