Laundry Room Hangout

This pretty laundry room is also the perfect pad for the family dog with low stainless steel dishes, one with a water faucet for fresh drinks, as well as a cozy, out-of-the-way bed.

Mudroom Kennel

The most loyal of friends gets a resting spot in this cheerful mudroom. Lots of natural light and pretty blue details make the mood bright and friendly.

Puppy-Friendly Alcove

This dead space beneath the stairs is transformed into a private, puppy-friendly alcove. Built-in storage allows for stocking treats and toys.

Feeder + Storage Cabinet

A dog feeder and water station is a sleek and creative addition to this kitchen. The cabinet also provides storage for pet food, treats, glassware and other small items.

Cozy Pet Nook

A small nook tucked under the stairs serves as a cozy doghouse for this lucky pup.

Pet-Friendly Porch

This porch features a place for the pooches. Built-in benches offer lounge seating, while built-in dog beds below give this porch added functionality.

Smart Storage

Fido's food and water bowls are hidden neatly inside a drawer in the laundry room.

Cozy Kitchen Spot

A nook below the kitchen island is the perfect spot for a pet to perch while you're cooking; it lets them be near you but keeps them from getting under your feet.

Sleep Space

Orange throw pillows and a dog bed are nestled inside this nook, creating a comfortable lounge spot for the family pet.

Room for the Pooch

This laundry room features a built-in space for your pooch to recharge and relax while you handle the daily housework.

Stylish Pallet Bed

Give your four-footed family member a stylish place to sit with a one-of-a-kind shipping pallet pet bed mobilized with casters. This not only serves as a resting spot for your pet but also makes for a stylish addition to your living space.

Pull-Out Pet Bowls

This built-in pet-feeding station features two bowls that can be pulled out from beneath the kitchen island when it's Fido's feeding time. They simply slide back in when not in use.

Comfy Crates

Three dog crates built underneath an upholstered bench in the living room ensure your furry friends have a space to call their own.
