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

Keep you pets in mind next time you make a home improvement, and give them the space they deserve!

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 like 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.

Closets

Have you ever bought a new shirt at the end of summer because it was on sale? Then you put it away for next summer, and when summer rolls around you have forgotten all about it because you can’t find it in your monster of a closet? Yeah, me too. Closets are one space that need storage and organization… and LOTS of it! Check out these closets below. Which one would you choose for your own?

Bathrooms

One common thing that all bathrooms share is the need for storage. Why not make them look fabulous at the same time? These are both two needs for every bathroom. What good is a bathroom if it looks great but lacks storage?

Dining Rooms

Being able to have cabinetry in the dining room allows you to match it to the kitchen! With the trend to have open spaces, using coordinating cabinetry in the kitchen and dining room really pulls everything together.

Pantries 

A pantry can be designed to be strictly a pantry, or it can be designed to do a little more. Check out these pantries below. Do you like the idea of having a breakfast area/bar in the pantry? Or, do you like a pantry to be only a room for storing items such as canned goods, food, etc.?
