6 Creative Ways to Make Your Home More Pet-Friendly


The days of the dog house are over. But allowing your pet the run of your home doesn’t necessarily mean you have to make sacrifices when it comes to cleanliness and style. Be inspired by these cool and creative pet-friendly living solutions.

1. Built-In Feeding Bowls

This idea is an excellent way to take advantage of unused space; it not only looks neat, but it ensures feeding bowls are never knocked over accidentally.

2. Hidden Entrance

A dog door doesn’t have to be an eyesore. Make the most out of your cupboard space by installing a sneaky side entrance to give your pets easy access to your home.

3. Decorative Cat Litter Boxes

Forget leaving a litter tray in the corner. Cat litter cabinets can be both pretty and practical.

4. Dog Friendly Mud Room

A built-in dog shower is one of the best pet investments you can make. If, like most of us, you haven’t got room for a dedicated dog-friendly mud room, you can also install one in your laundry room. We also recommend a dog shower head attachment ($34.98, Amazon) that can work indoors and out. 

5. Cat Tower

Save your furniture from constant scratch marks by investing in cat tower, complete with machine-washable cushions.

6. Dog Bed Designs

Instead of throwing a mat on the floor, think of ways to build your dog bed into areas that be hidden or tucked away when they are not being used.
