Cater parts of your home to your pets. One of the first things said on every sell-your-house-type show is to get rid of all evidence of pets. But unless you are selling your house right now, who cares if your home’s next owners don’t like cats (or dogs or ferrets)? Building in cat ramps, pet doors, or built in food bowls under the island, can make life with furry friends easier and more entertaining.

So what makes these stairs so unique? First, the foam density is an exemplified feature. Royal Ramps offers 1.5 pounds per cubic foot of Industrial-Grade, high-density foam. This allows for extra firm support, with 50% more density than many other products; however, the foam itself is still lightweight enough for you to move the dog stairs around. Furthermore, the life cycle of the foam has been constructed to last the lifetime of your pet. Other products typically only have 1 pound per cubic foot, commercial grade packaging foam. When constructed from this material, your stairs will break down faster, as this type of foam is not intended for long term, repetitive use. It will crush down more easily, and once this has occurred, the stairs cannot provide safety or security for your pets. Furthermore, many other brands of stairs use materials that are cheap to produce, but overly flimsy and lightweight, so that they too easily shift around, which could be dangerous for your pet; or, the materials are so heavy that you could hurt your own back or neck moving them into place.
