Home Features To Consider As A Dog Owner
If you’re a dog owner, you know the challenge of keeping your pet’s belongings organized in your home. Dog beds, bowls, and toys can clutter up your space and make it difficult to maintain a neat and tidy living environment.
In an ideal world, these items would be hidden out of plain sight or blend seamlessly with your decor, while still being accessible to your furry friend. Here are a few ways you can achieve this:
1. Built-In Dog Bowls
Do your dog’s bowls clutter your space? When doing a kitchen renovation, one of the smartest ways to hide your dog’s bowls is to install a pull-out drawer or built-in nook in your cabinetry. These can be customized to fit the size of your dog’s bowls and can be easily hidden away underneath your counters when not in use. This is a great option for those who want to keep their dog’s feeding area out of sight or tidy when guests come over.
2. Dog Washing Station
If you have a dog that loves to play outside, you know how messy they can get. A dog washing station can be a lifesaver for dog owners who want to keep their homes clean, especially when owning a larger breed. They are often built into a laundry room or mud room, and look similar to a built-in shower with shorter walls, and lower taps and spray nozzles.
3. Hidden Dog Bed
Dog beds can be bulky and take up valuable floor space in your home. One of our favourite solutions is to build a nook under your kitchen island or other built-in furniture to create a cozy spot for your furry friend. This not only keeps your home looking tidy, but it also gives your dog a safe and comfortable spot to relax.
4. Built-In Water Bowl Tap
If you own a dog, it can feel like you’re refilling their water bowl constantly. If pull-out dog bowls aren’t feasible, consider adding a built-in water tap above your dog’s water bowl. Not only is it an easy way to make sure they’re getting fresh water, but it will also help protect your flooring from accidental splashes or spills.
With a little creativity and some customization, you can create a space in your home that works for both you and your furry friend.
