Let's get real - our furry friends are members of our family. They love us unconditionally, are always glad to see us (except maybe a few from the feline variety!), and just make life sweeter. It makes sense to incorporate them into your next build or remodel. Here are some of our favorite built-in accessories for your pet.
There's no need to have a bulky plastic crate in the middle of your otherwise beautiful space when you can build kennels to match the rest of your house and cabinetry.
Our favorite guy, Winston, in his built-in kennel complete with a separator to control access to the outside doggie door that always stays hidden.
This built-in kennel blends in so well you hardly know it's there!
From our showroom display, this built-in kennel is a perfect place for Fido!
TOE-KICK FOOD/WATER BOWLS
So convenient and easy! Toe-kick bowls are a stylish way for you to control your pet's access to food/water, but also tuck them out of sight when they're not in use.
Examples of toe-kick bowls both on modern cabinetry and traditional.
WATER FILLING STATION
Wanting to go beyond the toe-kick option and take your pet's eating space to the next level? Install a food & water station complete with a wall mounted faucet and lined with marble, granite or tile.

No more bulky bins taking up precious space in your laundry or mud rooms! Build pet food storage right into your cabinetry with an easy sliding pull-out.
Easy (and gorgeous!) food storage for your pets.
Leashes, collars, doggie bags - all the things that normally get cluttered in a drawer can now have their place. Here's another look at our showroom display that has a great example of a hidden side cabinet.

BUILT-IN DOG WASH
No more dog hair in your tub and water all over your bathroom! It just makes sense!

Let's face it - we LOVE our pets! They deserve to be a consideration when designing a home. It not only provides spaces for our furry friends, but can make our lives easier, too. All things "pet" have their own place and messes stay confined and tucked away. It's a win/win!
