For many, pets are important members of the family. In a survey by the National Association of Realtors, about 61% of U.S. homes own a pet or plan to own one in the near future. Of this number, over half (52%) have commissioned a remodeling contractor for pet-friendly renovations. These projects can range from adding a simple doggie-door to a full perimeter fencing.
Making your pet feels comfortable in your home is not just limited to these things, however. There are so many other ideas that can help give your animal friends a much better home. Here are a few of them:
If you’re considering a bathroom remodeling project, consider adding a few features that can make bathing your pets much less of a hassle. A bathtub-shower conversion is a great way to give large dogs more space to be thoroughly cleaned. Install a handheld showerhead at a lower height to help make the process easier.
Remodeling Your Kitchen
Your kitchen is an excellent place to build a feeding station for your furry friends. Transform an awkward corner into an all-in-one pet food storage and dispensary area. This means putting up a simple cabinet where bags of doggie treats or kitty chows can be stored safely away from foraging noses. Below, add a few food and water bowls on top of easy-to-clean, laminated flooring. When it’s time to clean up their mess, you’ll be glad you made this renovation. Lastly, think about installing a doggie gate at your kitchen’s entrance. This can help keep your cats and dogs away from the area when you don’t want them there.
