Pet Friendly Kitchens

Renovating your kitchen is one of the biggest investments of your life.  Why not accommodate it for all members of the family?  Personalize your cabinetry with pet friendly features, such as food storage, bowl areas, spot for a bed, crates and gates for everyone's safety.  Planning for these items strategically within the remodeling will not only save space, but will enhance the future appearance of the kitchen while preventing an obvious view of pet products.

 


A pull out trash bin can be used for food storage. Adding a tight lid it will keep the food fresh. Consider using motion sensors, or a foot pedal open for hands free operation. This idea will also keep the bag of food out of view and prevent it from getting in the way or taking up space.

Tired of the water bowls being kicked?  Consider adding them to the open end of a cabinet.  An easy to wipe clean stainless steel bottom will keep the cabinet floor in tact. Your pets will have easy access to their bowls, and they are in an easy spot to refill.
