If morning walks and muddy paws are part of your daily routine, dedicate a space to make life with pets a breeze. Regardless of your square footage, here are some Fido-friendly design tips to consider as you embark on your next remodel.

Spaces that serve triple duty.

Eat, sleep, bathe—all in one space. Keep pets and their essentials close to the heart of your home with a designated mudroom. This hardworking room offers space-saving solutions that ensure everything, even mud, has its place.


Expert mudroom tips:

  • Use Deep Roll Out Drawers to maximize pet supply storage.
  • Integrate opening shelving and wicker baskets to keep pet toys accessible.
  • Strategically place a bench seat by the door. A bench seat begs people to take a seat and remove their muddy boots, leaving the dirt behind.
  • Hang sturdy hooks at varying heights so they are well prepared for everything from kids’ coats to dog leashes.
  • Create a pet feeding station using a Wall Top Hinge cabinet.
  • Install a pet shower in the mudroom to keep mud from entering your home. Muddy paws are inevitable but muddy floors don’t have to be.

This multifunctional space serves triple-duty as a mud, pet and laundry room.

Expert tips for a multifunctional space:

  • Floor-to-ceiling cabinets ensure there is plenty of space for all your pet products. Keep your most used items on the lower shelves and reserve the top cabinets for less frequently used items.
  • A pet feeding station provides the ideal place for meals. Create a canine kitchen table that’s out of harm’s way.
  • Open shelving makes treats and grooming supplies easily accessible.
  • Deep Roll Out Trays create the perfect pet pantry.
  • A Wood Tiered Cutlery Divider drawer keeps pet accessories organized.
  • A Base Wastebasket is ideal for easy to reach pet food storage.
