4 Ideas to Make Your Spaces Pet-Friendly

According to the Humane Society of the United States, as much as 65% of households across the country have a pet. It’s safe to say that millions of dogs, cats, and other animals share our living spaces, romping across our living rooms, and snuggling into our bedrooms. Pets are an important part of our families, which is why we need to make our living spaces friendly for them.

Pet-Friendly Space

Creating a pet-friendly home will not only protect you from noise and scratches; it will also help your furry friends become more comfortable in their surroundings. Handyman Connection® of Alpharetta, the top home maintenance partner in the region, shares four ideas to help you create a safe environment for your pets.

  • Creative Entrance – The truth is, dogs and cats love to roam around our backyards. Many homeowners create small exterior doors to help their pets easily get in and out of the room. You don’t have to settle for the run-of-the-mill door, though. Create whimsical entrances by incorporating different opening shapes, colors, and decors in your design.
  • Built-In Feeding Bowls – For kitchens and living rooms that have many unused spaces, you can add built-in feeding bowls for your pets. They don’t just look neat; they also make sure that your pets never knock them over accidentally.
  • Comfy Beds – Instead of having your pets sleep on mats, take the time to build them a personal bed. To save space, you can incorporate pet beds into your regular furniture, such as small tables or cabinets with hollowed out cavities. They will keep your furry friends warm and cozy, especially during cold months.
  • Washing Stations – When your pet decides to roll in the mud or in something unpleasant, prevent the mess from getting all over your home by adding pet washing stations. You can place them in your laundry room or mudroom for easy cleaning.

These are just some of the ways you can better accommodate your dogs, cats, and other pets. The professionals at Handyman Connection of Alpharetta have experience in a wide range of remodeling options and can customize your project to fit your pet’s needs. Call us at (770) 870-5200 today.
