Turning Your Laundry Into a Dogs Sanctuary
We have a design trend that will have all dog lovers jumping to renovate their laundry.
The laundry is often a room that we last think to renovate, it's a functional room that reminds us we have chores to be done. But, what if I told you, you could turn this space into a sanctuary for your furry friends - because who can resist spoiling our four legged children.
We've seen people accommodating their little loves into their laundry designs and we thought we would bring to light our favourite designs for you all to consider in your next reno.
Pet Washing Station
If you have enough room in your laundry, a pet washing station could be the best move you've ever made. Avoid mud being run through the house and pet hair blocking your shower drains - win! A small tiled hob with raised floor and a hand held shower on the wall will make it easy for you to direct the spray and give your dog a luxurious soak.
If you want to spruse up your pet washing station, try a shampoo dispenser on the wall, robe hooks for the pet towel or an overhead shelf for hairdryers and treats.
Incorporating a hidden drawer at the bottom of your laundry design for dog food bowls is brilliant as it allows you to keep the bowls off the floor and hide the bowls when you have guests or it's not dinner time.
Make sure you get removable bowls for your drawer as this will make it easy to clean and replace.
Making sure our pets have a comfy place to lay their head in the new laundry is a top priority, but if you don't want a dog bed laying out in the open, try incorporating a space in the cabinetry.
Hooks for Leads
Using Wall/Robe Hooks in the laundry can be used for so many different things but if we're designing our laundry for our pets, they are perfect for hanging leads and pet bags.
What better way to treat your pooch than with their very own sanctuary in the home. If you are looking for product advice, or a custom laundry, contact The Blue Space team on (02) 9674 1000, we're here to help bring your reno dreams to life.
