Fido is part of the family, but sometimes he doesn’t quite know how to obey the family rules, and sometimes just doesn’t fit in the human-sized furniture. You’ve gone to great effort to design your home just the way you want it, but that doggy-bed in the middle of the floor somehow detracts from what you had in mind. Here are some delightful design ideas for making life at home with your four-legged friends more fun and less hassle.
Give a leg up
Protect your place
Minding multiple pets quickly gets out of hand, so create an organizing space with hooks for leashes and outdoor gear. Keep toys at hand in a basket or bin. Set a water-proof mat or boot tray under food bowls for easy cleanup and make sure pet dishes work in the dishwasher for simple sanitation.
Store in style
Rather than keeping large unsightly bags of pet food, store it in more stylish containers such as adorable trash bins with lids, or inside a decorative hamper, basket, or crate.
If your pet prefers a crate at home, check out some of the stylish wood/metal combinations or pet crate/side table furniture so that your pet’s home blends right in with yours.
