Pet-Friendly Kitchen Remodeling Ideas Your Pet Will Love
For a household with a pet or several furry family members, you must accord due consideration to making every space of your home more pet-friendly. If you are undergoing kitchen remodeling, here are some great ideas to add to your design.
1. Laminate Flooring
For pet owners, laminate flooring for your kitchen remodeling project is an excellent option for several reasons. This type of flooring is scratch-resistant and will continue to look as good as new long after you complete your kitchen remodeling. Laminate is also very easy to clean, and you will have an easier time cleaning up after your pets when they make a mess on the kitchen floor. Additionally, you may want to consider getting water-resistant laminate flooring so you don't have to worry about not being able to clean up spills immediately.
Another consideration for the floors for your kitchen remodeling is to lay out runners on your kitchen floor. For all its advantages, laminate flooring can feel slippery under the paws of your little pets, and adding the runners will ensure they have a non-slip surface on which to run around freely.
2. Add a Pull-Out Feeder Station
Leave your pets' food and water bowls on your kitchen floor, and it may just be a matter of time before you trip over them as you move around the kitchen. In addition to getting hurt, you will have a mess to clean off the floor. This isn't to mention the fact that these bowls on the floor can be quite an eyesore.
Why not improve your safety and the aesthetics of your space while ensuring your pet has an easy feeding time by adding a feeder station to your kitchen remodeling plan? You can achieve this by adding a pull-out drawer to your cabinet where you can fit the bowls. You can always splurge on a dedicated stand-alone and stylish feeder station if your budget allows it.
3. Pet Beds and Rest Areas
Go for bespoke kitchen islands and cabinets with some designated space in which to spread out a cozy bed for your pets. Also, you can order a pet bed to match with the theme you select for the kitchen remodeling. Either way, your furry family member will have a place to rest, and you don't have to worry about them being in your way.
As outlined, you can add some pet-friendly ideas to your kitchen remodeling without compromising on style. Consult with your designer for more ideas, and both you and your pets will be happy after the remodel.
