If you own a pet, it can be challenging to keep a clean and beautiful home. Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to keep a lovely space for Fido and Fluffy. Here are 4 interior decorating tips for pet owners.

1. Find a Unique Way to Keep Your Cat Litter Box Hidden

If you have a cat and you love to entertain, you might be wondering where to hide your kitty’s litter box. Are you looking for a place where no one will have to know - unless they happen to be around when you receive your cat litter delivery? We have some ideas:

One idea is to build a cabinet or end table with a hollow space in the back to store the box. Your cat can enter the space without anyone ever knowing. You might also consider hanging a curtain from a four-legged table (but make sure the cat can easily enter).

Litter box plant stands can be another great way to hide your litter box. To the naked eye, they appear to just be a plant, but they’re a discreet way to store a litter box.

If you have a space under your stairs, you can turn this into a secret hiding spot for the litter box. All you’ll need to do is add a cat door.

2. Invest in Luxurious Pet Furniture

Do you want to turn Max into a successful pupstagrammer? Pet furniture has come a long way and can make the perfect prop for your photos. Doggie sofas and chaise lounges come in so many different colors, sizes, and designs.

Whether you have a Cavapoo or a Golden Retriever, you’re bound to find dog furniture that will have your pet’s followers saying “aww” on Instagram.

3. Build a Food Station for Your Pets

There’s no doubt that pet bowls can be a hassle. Not only do they clutter up your kitchen, but your pet’s food probably ends up all over. That’s also not to mention the risk of someone accidentally tripping over it and spilling pet food or water all over the kitchen.

We have a pet-friendly interior design idea for you: an extension off the kitchen island that serves as a food station. It won’t be an eyesore since it will just look like a lower level to your kitchen island, and your pet’s food will be contained and out of the way of people’s feet.

4. Consider Designating a Shower or Bathtub for Your Dogs

Here’s an interior design idea for pet owners: a shower or bathtub that’s only for your dogs to use. There are a few reasons you might consider this.

Whether you have small or large dogs, they probably get dirty when you walk them through the mud or on rainy days. They’ll probably require a bath. Rather than dragging them into your own bathing space, having a dedicated pet wash station can simplify the process and help keep your tub cleaner.

When creating one, there are a few design considerations to keep in mind. You'll want an area that's high enough that you don't strain your back or knees while scrubbing Fido. Also, think about getting them in and out of the station. If they are small enough, you can just pick them up and put them in. However, if they are a larger breed, add some steps or a ramp to make things easier.

Other things to add include a water sprayer and shelves to hold products and towels.

These are just 4 interior decorating tips for pet owners. From creating discreet places for your pet’s supplies to buying pet furniture to get more Likes on Instagram, decorating your home as a pet owner just requires a little creativity.
