Woodward Park pet owners know that caring for a dog, cat, or other animals also means having an assortment of pet-related things. Beds, toys, dishes, leashes, and more can quickly become a stressful situation unless you have a way to keep them organized. There are some artistic ways to keep your pet accessories under control and easy to find. By taking one or more of these procedures, you can easily keep your pet’s area organized and your home clutter-free.
Pet Feeding Station
An excellent way to keep your pet’s area clean and to look presentable is to create a pet feeding station. A feeding station could have a bin for food and treats, hooks for leashes and accessories, and a pull-out drawer with food bowls. So everything will remain safe and stable. You could even buy or repurpose a cabinet, side table, or other pieces of furniture, anything that blends in with your actual décor.
Another good suggestion to keep your pet’s accessories organized is with a walking station. Consider using pet-themed wall décor, hooks, decorative baskets, or other elements to create a place to hang accessories that has all of the essential things in one place. And if you want to take your dog, cat, or even an iguana out for a stroll, you’ll have anything you need.
Pet beds can take up a lot of floor space. So why not maximize your square footage by building a storage built to fit underneath a pet bed? With some boxes or drawers and a little creativity, you can create a bed frame that has space for storing toys, grooming supplies, and accessories. By using cabinets, you also put all your pet’s things neatly out of sight when they’re not in use.
Creative Storage Ideas
However, choosing some attractive storage bins or baskets can go a long way toward keeping your pet’s area organized. You may use a set of nesting bins or baskets to store objects of various sizes. These can be neatly put in a corner or tucked in a convenient spot. Or perhaps buy an ottoman or chest which could be used for toys and other things. Ottomans and chests can do double-duty as great furniture pieces in a living room, adding aesthetic appeal at the same time keeping your pet’s things all in one place.
If you need extra space, you could even repurpose an old armoire, cabinet, or other pieces of furniture to use for pet supplies. Pre-owned furniture pieces are always easy to find, and the price is reasonable to purchase and can be painted to suit your home’s interior décor.
One of the best ways to keep a pet area tidy is to de-clutter on a regular basis. Donate or throw out old leashes, broken toys, and any food items your pet won’t eat. Just hold on to the things that you and your pet use often. Consider donating anything in good condition to a local rescue or shelter. In this manner, you’re going to help out other pets, and at the same time, you have reduced the number of items you need to keep organized.
