Pet ownership has been booming in popularity in recent years. As we welcome our new furry companions, we want to make them feel comfortable at home. This article will guide you through several pet-friendly design features to add to your home.
Owning a pet requires a lot of work. You have to take care of your animal companion through feeding, walks, and playtime. Some of this can be made easier by adapting your home to life with a pet. This is why pet-friendly features are becoming more popular in modern homes.
As much as you might want your pet by your side all day, they need to have their own space. Giving them their own room or a section of a room can be perfect for providing this comfort. You could also consider a mudroom for your dogs, outfitted with a dog shower and storage for their food, treats, and toys. If you have cats, consider installing a built-in cat tree, scratching post, and litter box. It’s also a good idea to have an extraction fan in the room to keep foul odors out.
Like humans, cats and dogs love peering through the windows, looking at the great outdoors. Due to this, several homes have large windows or glass doors that allow pets to have a nice view of the outdoors. Cats usually sit on the window sill, but most dogs would love having a window seat. The seat could even double as storage space for pet items.
Other minor additions you could consider are installing a pet door that allows your pets to go in and out on their own. Another excellent addition would be a feeding station incorporated into your kitchen. This design keeps things out of the way and reduces the mess while allowing your pet to eat.
