Pet-Friendly Kitchen Features to Include in Your Remodeling Project

Your pets are a part of the family, so it only makes sense to include features designed especially for them when you remodel your kitchen. Designing a pet-friendly kitchen helps maintain a well-organized and clutter-free space while making it safer for your four-legged friends.

As Tucson’s premier kitchen remodel source, Pro Remodeling works with homeowners who want to add built-in pet areas and more to their kitchens. Check out some of our best pet-friendly ideas, and give us a call at (520) 745-9769 to start your home upgrade.

How to Make Your Kitchen a Haven for Your Furry Best Friends   

For pets, the perfect pet-friendly kitchen means access to unlimited treats and belly rubs. Humans want kitchens to provide plenty of workspace, organization, and easy-to-clean surfaces. Including some of these pet-approved features can help you achieve those goals. 

Pet-Friendly Materials 

Designing your kitchen with animals in mind means choosing surfaces that are easy to clean and durable. Muddy paws and wet noses can mean a constant battle to keep light-colored lower cabinets, waterfall countertops, and other surfaces clean, so choose colors and materials that won’t show marks. Laminate or tile flooring is also a good choice when you don’t want your pet’s nails to scratch the floor; choose a lighter color to hide hair if your pet sheds a lot. 

Safety Features 

The typical kitchen has hazards that can harm your pet, but you can add features to a pet-friendly kitchen to keep them safe. A pull-out trash can, for example, can keep your curious pets away from the garbage and dangerous items. Built-in pet gates can help keep your pets contained without sacrificing aesthetics, while non-toxic materials like low-VOC paints are a good choice for everyone’s health and well-being. 

Pull-Out Feeding Centers 

Pet food and bowls can take up space on the floor and add color, so incorporate a built-in pet feeding station into your kitchen remodel. Include space for removable food and water bowls, as well as food and treat storage. If you have space, include other built-in pet areas, like a bed or crate, to give Fido an out-of-the-way place to rest. 

Powerful Appliances 

Incorporating pet-friendly appliances into your kitchen can make caring for your companions easier and give you peace of mind that they are safe and happy. For the ultimate pet-friendly kitchen, consider installing automatic feeders and hydration stations to ensure your pet gets the right amount of food and water at the right time. A pet camera and monitor lets you keep an eye on them when you aren’t home; some even let you talk to your pet to provide comfort (or keep them out of trouble).
