Pet-Friendly Home Remodeling
Home remodeling serves the purpose of making your home better and more comfortable for you and your family. If you’re a pet lover like us, you consider your pets a part of the family too. As a result, it’s only natural to consider remodeling ideas that will help make your home safe and comfortable for your pet. Here are a few remodeling ideas that help make life easier for you and pet.
Want to give your dog a bath a home instead of going to the groomers? A walk-in the shower will make it easier if you have a larger dog. Having a handheld showerhead will also make it easier to rinse off your dog. You can also have a bathing station installed outside, attached to your home for baths and rinse-offs on warmer days.
Adding pet storage makes life easier for you too. It allows you to keep all your pet’s items in one location. Towels, clothes, leashes, toys and more can all be kept in here. You can build in various compartments to separate the various items. You can place the storage where it’s easily accessible. Additionally, you can have more than one in your home. You can have one near your home’s entrance for outdoor supplies. This will make it easier to just grab and go when taking your dog out.
Keep food bowls out of the way by creating an area for it. You can create a space where food and water bowls can come out for meal times and then be concealed after meal time. This helps keep bowls out of sight for a tidy space and you’ll be less likely to trip on bowls walking back and forth.
Most pets like to catch some rays and enjoy a bit of fresh air. If you can’t trust your furry friend to run out and come back home, an enclosed patio or porch can come in handy. An enclosed patio allows them to perch and stretch around in the sun, it also allows you to enjoy your view all year round.
Have an aging pet? As your pet ages it might be more difficult to navigate stairs. Building a ramp can help get up and down. They can also help your pet get up on the couch (if they are allowed), since jumping might be harder for them with age.
A comfortable and happy pet, helps keep you happy too.
