Pet and Home Remodeling
Just like no house is ever built the precisely the same, no remodeling projects are also created equal. There are those that benefit most, if not every home, but most of them may only serve advantageously to certain living circumstances. Home remodeling and renovations are investments that when done right, boost not only home value but also improve the quality of living of the family.
In this, have you ever thought about doing something to improve things for the other components of your household, the ones with four legs?
Adding new members to your home implies changing up its design and making adjustments for the happiness and health of your new additions. Just like you'd make improvements for a new baby, you will need to make a few changes for the benefit of your new pets as well. While you don't have to design a playroom or nursery as you would for a kid, there are some renovations s and remodels you can perform around your home to make your new furry friends feel more at home.
When you pause to think about it, your furry friends might not be so happy with their lot. Do you think that Fido likes trekking to the basement to use her litter box? Or that Fluffy enjoys being condemned to a dirty mud room just because his crate is not so attractive?
Keeping pets, like so many other things, can be quite the double-edged sword. Alternatively, they can make great companions and be lots of fun but, on the other, some are messy, noisy and take a great deal of looking after.
Most doting pet owners are beginning to understand this and are creating unique pet nooks in their homes, deciding to make life a lot nicer for their four-legged companions. Some are choosing to assign just a corner of a room to this new pet haven while others are devoting entire rooms to creating a pet playground. And thanks to most rather innovative pet furniture that is on sale these days, and with a few simple remodeling tweaks, these spaces look as comfortable as they make the pets who occupy them feel.
Building a Pet Haven in your Home
To start with, you will need to assign the space that you will be donating to your pet. This should be a well-ventilated area, not too cold and not too hot, and hard surface flooring is probably the best choice so that any minor accidents can be cleaned up with ease. Hardwood may not be the best choice however as pet urine can damage it permanently but a good Pergo or ceramic tile floor should fit the bill very adequately and should prove less expensive to boot.
When you talk about pet furniture, the choice these days is yours. There are different cabinets available customized to camouflage a kitty litter tray without making it difficult to get in and out and bigger cupboards that can accommodate a dog bed. Some shelves look as enticing as any other but are designed to be cat perches, sophisticated cat gyms that look a little like sculpture.
How you decide to furnish your pet's new suite is entirely up to you, but there are a great many surprisingly sophisticated options available in the modern pet furniture business.
Both dog crates and litter boxes can be veiled away in attractive wooden cabinets that look just like regular furniture. And a significant number of pet beds, cat posts that look like beautiful shelving and even real wooden cat trees can be purchased (or even custom designed by a carpenter), to give your pet's personal space an attractive air and a conducive environment.
