One of the newest and coolest features for a home is the pet suite. This is becoming a common trend and if you own dogs, you may be considering adding one to your home. Here are a few reasons why a pet suite is a great choice when remodelling or upgrading your home.

Pets are Family

Unless you are simply a cruel pet owner, you probably think of your pets as a part of the family. Most parents want each of their children to have their own room, so why not create a space specifically for your pets?

A Separate is Healthy

A separate space for your pets helps to give them an area they can think of as their own. This can help in many ways with training, rooming and with how your pet feels.

Creating your Pet Suite

There are many ways to go about creating this space and many types of designs you can use for your new pet suite. You may be surprised to find out, a pet suite can actually make your life a bit easier when it comes to grooming and bathing your dog, as well.

Under your Staircase

With the right remodelling, many pet owners have successfully turned the wasted space under a staircase into a pet suite. You may not be able to put in a groom area, but you can make this an area with a pet bed, bowls and toys.

An Outdoor Area

Another way pet suites are designed is to provide an outdoor area, which leads into an indoor area. The outdoor area may contain a shower for bathing, while the indoor area provides room for play, bedding and more.

A Luxury Suite

Of course, you can take it to the extreme and create a luxury area covering several hundred square feet for your pets. This area can contain a bathing station, grooming table, cabinets, food bowls bedding and an area for play.

Regardless of the type of design you create, a pet suite can be a great addition to your home. It will allow you a better area for grooming and will give your pets a place to call their own.
