Small Pet Furniture Solutions for Small Spaces
Believe me, I understand how hard it can be finding the perfect fit for your furry friend.
Animals and other pets have a way of not just entering our homes but entering our hearts.
Dogs, cats, and birds all have a way of becoming part of the family.
When you live in a small abode you'll do whatever you have to in order to make room for your family pet.
That also includes making their stay as comfortable as possible.
So to help you out, I've found some space saving pet furniture that will create a pet-friendly environment and space-conservative one at the same time.
Pet BedsWhen we get ready for bed each evening we also want to know that our beloved little friend also has a good place where they can sleep.
Finding the right pet furniture can sometimes be problematic when the space is small and the pet is big but for the most part it can be handled with ease thanks to a variety of pet beds that exist on the market.
Just as standard beds make for room in our surroundings for human inhabitants, so it can be done for our dog or feline friend.
A few options worth considering are folding pet beds, corner pet beds and pet bunk beds. All space saving options for the small home dweller with one or two dogs.
Pet GatesIf all family members work or attend school that means the family pet either has the run of the home or they are cordoned off in one specific area.
If one room is okay for them to wander in the use of a baby gate installed in the doorway will keep your family pet from destroying anything due to separation anxiety or sheer boredom.
The pet gate is an alternative piece of pet furniture. It can be placed just about anywhere you please. Several options exist and the choice that you make will be based solely on your specific needs and the structure of your home.
Consider folding pet gates, expandable pet gates and pet gate crates, which allow you to convert a gate into a crate.
And if you have a moderately large pet, keep tall pet gates in mind. They'll keep your large dog or spry cat from jumping the gate and getting over to the other side.
Pet StepsPets have a way of understanding our requests just by the tone of our voices. There are places where they are allowed and places where they are not.
Some enjoy having their pets sleep along side them in bed. Mastering the height isn't a big deal for a larger animal but smaller pets can find heights daunting and scary.
In order to give them easy access to the places they are allowed you can place a set of pet steps for them to climb up and down. Two or three steps are all that is needed for them to reach most heights around the home and many of them will fold in on themselves when not in use.
Whatever you do in regard to pet furniture, don't forget that what your pet needs the most is a bit of your time and attention. How happy humankind would be if they were welcomed home as lovingly as they are by their family pet.
