Pet Lovers: Create a Unique Space or Your Four-Legged Friends

Are four-legged friends part of your family? Most of the time they are treated as if they are, so don’t they deserve a space to call their own? People make decisions on building and remodeling all of the time; however, most often the four-legged family members are not included in the plans. What if you could create a design that included pet friendly features that are not only beautiful but functional as well? Cabinetry is a wonderful way to provide pet friendly function to any room. There are three categories to keep in mind when integrating your pet into the design of your next home improvement. Pets, like humans, need a place to be bathed, to sleep, and to eat. These are three spaces that can easily be incorporated into rooms of your home while disguising their purpose.

Bathing

Whether your dog is large or small, having a space to keep them clean is a necessity for year round grooming. Also, by giving them their own space, you are no longer having to fork up your sink or bathtub. One perfect place to include a pet grooming area is the laundry room. This is a room that is often hidden to guests and lacks carpet, which makes it the ideal place for bathing animals.

Sleeping

It’s pretty common that pets have their own bed, but is it just lying out in the living room floor? Why not incorporate an area for their bed to stay out of the way and in a pleasing aesthetic? A living/entertainment space or the kitchen is perfect for getting dogs and cats out of the way and in their own cozy corner!

Feeding

Our four-legged friends have to eat just humans! Create them an area for their food and water bowls to stay where they are out of the way of daily commotion. Feeding stations are perfect for the kitchen, laundry room, and other rooms of the home.

Cabinetry is a wonderful way to provide storage for all rooms and all needs, including pets, while making a room look spectacular. Although including animals in the plan can sometimes take a little customization, with Wellborn Cabinet, Inc.’s You Draw It Program, nearly anything is possible! No matter the size or personality of your fur baby, you are sure to find just what makes them happy!

Do your pets a favor and keep them in mind when building your home or doing your next remodel. For more ideas on how you can include your pet in the design of your home, go to www.wellborn.com.

  • Invest in a baby pool, or build one yourself for lazy poolside days with your pup!
  • Be sure your furry friend has plenty of shade to relax on those long hot summer days!
