Tips for Blending Your Current Style with New Feline Furniture
If you are looking to blend your current home decor and furniture with a new furniture cat wall or just new feline furniture overall, we have got you totally covered in cat hair for that too!
I don’t know about you, but it seems overwhelming to me to think I about.
Not knowing where to start can be intimidating. Here are some tips for creating a stylish and functional space for your fur baby.
Think about colors
Begin by looking at the colors and fabrics of the existing furniture and decor in the space. If you have neutral colors, such as white, gray, and beige, you can easily add pops of brighter colors in the cat wall furniture. For example, add a bright, playful yellow scratching post or a bright red cat perch. If you have bold, bright colors already in the room, adding furniture with neutral tones would be a great way to balance out the space.
Consider the style.
When picking out wall furniture for your cat wall, (such as wall mounted cat shelves) consider the style of the room. If your home is decorated in a bohemian style, choose wall mounted cat wall shelves with natural materials and earthy colors. If your home is more modern, look for sleek, geometric shapes with solid colors and textures. For an eclectic room, mix and match furniture pieces that have different shapes, styles, and colors. Fun shapes can be used as a cat shelf or cat perch.
These insanely gorgeous and unique cat shelves will make a great addition to just about any stile home. For modern homes, I would stick with the colors black, grey and even pink/reds. For bohemian anything that is a natural tone like off white, grey and tan are and ideal cat shelf choice.
The shape of these unique masterpieces makes them purrrfect for eclectic homes too!
