Designing Around Pets
It goes without saying that pet owners love their animals. But for those of us who have four-legged friends underfoot, there are always a few things that we could do without. Smelly litter boxes, ugly pet beds, unsightly carpet-covered cat structures, and fur-covered cushions are just a few items on the list. We all deal, because, well … it’s worth it. But fear not fellow animal lovers — there are solutions to our troubles. Yup, you can still be stylish without sacrificing any of your animal’s comfort. Check out these pet problems that were solved with design (on Houzz.com).
Of course, a mini-window seat is another great options for cat and dog owners. Cushion the area with a washable pad, and have a spare one on hand for when guests come over.

A built-in dog food station prevents bowls from tipping over and food from spilling on to the floor or into water bowls. The drawers above the eating station can conveniently house dog food and treats.
