The Purrfect Products For A Pet-Friendly Household

If there’s one thing that’s helped get many of us through the lockdown years with optimism intact, it’s our pets.

With a surge in working from home giving rise to a boom in pet ownership, there’s no doubt that our furry friends have helped to provide moments of solace, happiness, and amusement throughout that extra time spent indoors.



Now, it’s time to acknowledge their contribution to our lives, and think how we can best pay them back. In the form of interior design improvements.

If you’re thinking of giving your home a pet-friendly makeover this summer, we have the ideal product list to suit an animal loving household. Here’s how we manage to achieve this:

Flawless faceplates to deter mess

All our switches and sockets are screwless, providing smooth surfaces which are not only easy to clean, but will ensure your fittings won’t be picking up stray pet hair. If you have a pet that sheds a lot, why not reduce the chances of hair and other mess getting into the crevices of your fixture?

As an example, our Crystal Touch range provides a sleek led-lit panel which are very easy to maintain. With screwless faceplates providing a smooth, easily wipeable surface, you can ensure the hygiene and longevity of your fixtures and fittings, and your pet can frolic around the home to its heart’s content.

Minimal extrusion avoids injury

Pets like to play. Any experienced pet owner will be able to testify to the destructive power of that tendency. So while they chase tennis balls around the house, you need to ensure there aren’t any sharp extruding objects they could injure themselves on.

It was perhaps with a nod to the gamboling pets of this country that our designers decided to make our panels ultra thin. At just 4mm, you will barely notice any change from the rest of the wall, and your dog or cat will be able to play on with reckless abandon.

By lowering the depth of our fixtures and fittings, we’ve endeavored to make these products sit flush on the wall, leading to noticeable aesthetic improvements, and an array of extra benefits for pet owners.
