Look of the Week: Built-Ins for Dogs

Loving this rustic built-in dog cave.

And really, what a great idea to customize a space for pets - so that beds and bowls can be out of the way! Ideally the space remains flexible for other uses, of course (that's the resale part of my brain talking). That said, 68% of Americans own a pet.

Laundry areas are popular spaces for dog cubbies.

This recessed space at the end of the island is great to keep bowls out of the way - yet they bowls and stand could easily be removed and it's not longer a dog space.

Alas, if built-in opportunities are slim -- this graphic tent is sure to feel cozy. Land of Nod has tons of styles, and even Petco is in on it.

p.s. while we're on this topic of building in pretty pet spaces -- this gate (for dog or baby). Yes!
