Pet Palace

Our pets aren’t just animals living in our homes, they are our loyal companions. Family pets deserve a special place to rest their heads and feel safe. Creating a pet-specific spot in your home ensures your four-legged friends will live comfortably and happy together.

By O’Hara Interiors. This mudroom is located in the back of the home with easy access to the back yard, and it is designed for the whole family including their beloved dog. It offers style and functionality with custom cabinetry in Farrow & Ball Hague Blue and a gray, herringbone-patterned tile flooring—an easy clean-up for muddy messes. A built-in kennel with mesh panel fronts and a lock offers comfort for their dog, whether the family is at home or away.

By Lands End Development. The designer created a comfy nook for the four-legged family members and their beds. A small door above the nook allows the homeowners to pass laundry baskets to the walk-in closet. The durable ceramic tile floor and a custom cabinetry mudroom locker keep everyone organized.

By Michaelson Homes, LLC. The clients were interested in opening up a hallway space in addition to refreshing their kitchen. Adding the kennel space under the steps allowed their pet to have a comfy space without taking up any square footage.

By Cook Architectural Design Studio. The house, originally built in 1929, was renovated to accommodate the current owners' family and their lifestyle.  Special attention was given to each family member's space, even the furry ones.  A built-in dog bed keeps these important members of the family in the heart of the action but comfortably out of the way.

By Sienna and Sage Interior Design. This project was part of a larger remodel for a wonderful young couple with two beloved King Charles Spaniels. The couple wanted a dedicated "safety" zone for their beloved pups, who enjoyed being snuggled up in their kennel. This was a decorative solution for creating an inviting, safe space for the dogs.

By Betsy Bassett Interiors. This new kitchen design was created to eliminate the ugly dog crates. An L-shaped design allowed for the dog den base cabinet to be incorporated into the kitchen layout. Maxie and Scout love their new den and staying close to their people without being under foot.
