Most of us consider our pets to be members of our families, but despite our best intentions, it can be hard to make space for them sometimes. Between their food, toys, beds, and litter boxes, they often take up just as much room as the humans we live with!
Of course, we want them to be as happy and comfortable as possible, but not at the expense of our sanity. These 6 awesome ideas will help you provide your pet with a life of luxury while making sure you don't have to sacrifice all of your valuable space.
1. Food bowl drawer
If you're tired of always tripping over your pet's food and water bowls, this is the solution. The bowls can simply be tucked away when not needed, and you can even use the top part of the dresser to store all your extra pet supplies! Learn how to make it from The Design Confidential.
2. Entry table dog crate
This clever dog crate was custom-built by D.T. Carlson Co., and it's the perfect way to make sure your pet is the first thing you can tend to when you get home. It doubles as a stylish table, and is a great place to store your keys, mail, and other necessities.
3. The Cat Library
Designed by Corentin Dombrecht, this modular bookshelf is designed just as much for cats as it is for humans. It includes a built-in cat basket, and is made up of three separate units that can be assembled in a variety of ways to keep things interesting for your feline friend.
4. Built-in dog bed
If you have any extra space in your kitchen, you should consider a built-in dog bed like this one from Cook Architectural Design Studio. It makes it easy for your dog to hang out in the center of your home, while keeping him out of the way!
5. Hidden litter box
No matter how much you love your cat, the last thing you want is a litter box cluttering up your valuable space. This decorative plant does double-duty as a litter box, and nobody will even know it's there. You can order it online from Good Pet Stuff.
6. Murphy dog bed
If you're tight on space but want your furry friend to have a comfy place to sleep, murphy beds are a great option. They're a gorgeous alternative to typical bulky pet beds, and can be folded away when they're not needed! This one even has a separate storage space for your pet accessories, and you can buy it from Murphy's Paw Designs.
