For many homeowners, pets are considered members of the family. If you have been thinking of ways to improve your pet’s life at home, then you might be surprised to know that there are ways that you can remodel your house to make it more comfortable for them. Here are three remodeling projects that will make your home a better place for you and your pet.
If your front entrance goes right into your kitchen or living room, then things can get crowded and messy very easily, especially when you have pets. A mudroom can be as big or small as you want. You can install a cubby or storage bench to hold towels to dry off your dog, as well as a shoe rack. A mudroom is the perfect place for a stress-free cleanup to keep the mess of the outdoors from getting into your house.
A very simple and easy remodeling project is to install your pet’s food and water bowls into the bottom drawer of a kitchen cabinet. You can use an existing drawer or have a new one installed. The idea is that you can have a convenient place to take out the food bowls when your pet is eating and to put them away when they’re not in use. No more worries of them getting knocked over, and it can help you regulate mealtimes for a healthier pet. Just remember to give your pet access to water throughout the day.
A bigger project is to have a sunroom add-on to your home or to get a screened porch installed. A sunroom is a great way for your pet to enjoy the outdoors without the risks of being outside unattended. This is perfect for indoor cats or pet birds. Also, you and the rest of your family can enjoy the sunroom in any weather, all year.
