As dogs become more a part of our family, I find most of my clients are looking for mudroom ideas for dogs.  Let’s make it a dog-friendly laundry room.  Check out my video below:

Mudroom Ideas for Dogs

Now that homeowners are starting to utilize their laundry rooms or mud rooms for pets, I thought you’d want to see some great suggestions how to make that part of your home more pet-centric!

There is a whole industry that is moving towards catering to pets.  Let’s go over a few neat things to consider for your mudroom:

  • Lockers or cubbies – great to store food in airtight containers.  Another place to store toys, leashes, jackets and dog bones
  • Dog crates built into cabinets – this is a great place to have your dog crate – hidden away and under your laundry room folding station!
  • Dog washing station in the laundry room – if your dog gets mud or dirt on his paws, it would be a great way to rinse off his paws or give him that occasional bath.  Would totally save on grooming fees.
  • A place to Store Dog Bowls – train your dog to drink and eat in the mudroom too!

Make sure you use only the best products when remodeling your mudroom for that special little friend.

Final recap – I have three dogs.  They are a huge part of our family.  But honestly, they need a place, just like the kids, to store all their toys, leashes, bones and food.  But I really have enjoyed having their dog crates stored away to keep the smell down in the rest of the home.  My wife enjoys the fact we have a dog washing station in the laundry room too.

Don’t forget, if you need an estimate on getting your mudroom remodeled to accommodate your dog, give me a call.   My team and I would love to be of service to the Northwest Indiana communities such as St John, Long Beach, Beverly Shores, Lake of the Four Seasons, Schererville, Kreitzburg, Michigan City, Grand Beach, and New Buffalo, and all of Chicago area for 30+ years.
