If you fancy yourself a ‘cat person’ then there is very little you wouldn’t want for your kitty. A cat friendly interior design may be a little unconventional, but it’s not unheard of. It’s a unique and avant-garde concept because most people tend to think in regards to their own habits and desires. So to want a space that accommodates feline living is something of a rarity. Today, we’ll be discussing 5 techniques you can use to make your home interior designs cat friendly.
1. Give a lot of stepping stones
Cats like to move around a lot. As such, an interior design that is specifically crafted to accommodate them should have a lot of stepping stones so they can jump around the space without feeling constrained. You can use wall installations or built-in semi-shelving to accomplish this design feat.
2. No sharp edged fans
Singapore is a country with hot summers, so ceiling fans are completely unavoidable. You can, however make sure that your fan has no sharp edges that can hard your cat. The rest is completely up to your pet’s instinct. So try to leave a hefty distance between your kitty-friendly ceiling and the fan, though.
3. Play room
Cats always need room to move around. They’re playful creatures who like to bounce around from one place to another. So you’ll have to have an indoor play area for your kitty to play out all its energy. Note that it doesn’t have to be a large, overly extravagant room. It can just be a small space with wall to ceiling playfully designed pathways for your cat to enjoy.
4. Ceiling room
A literal ceiling ‘cat walk’ would be the best way to make your cat happy. These pathways can be designed to accommodate your light plan and have a positive impact on the overall aesthetic. You can suspend them from your ceiling with the help of aluminum or mild steel framing. It’s the perfect way to create some extra moving room for your cat.
Last, but not the least, graphics always matter. Just because you’re prioritizing your cat does not mean that you have to compromise on the visuals of the space. You can, however work within the theme. Cat inspired graphics combined with a softly hued color scheme can make your home look positively stunning!
