When you’re an animal lover, you know that your pets are basically part of the family. Which means you’ll probably find them in the kitchen too. Whether it because they want to hang around you or they’re just looking for some good food (usually human food.) Or they just want to chill out and lay down while you move around the kitchen, doing what humans do.
Of course, pets can also track in a lot of dirt, fur, anything that they can get themselves into will also be coming with them into the kitchen. Which may not seem like the ideal situation for your kitchen area when you’re cooking and baking in there. So we have the best tips for you on how to turn your kitchen into an animal-friendly area while remaining just as human-friendly!
Just like humans, animals love to relax. So they’ll find anywhere to lay, but why not add a space just for them to relax in the kitchen, that’s also out of the way of the cooking area. Create a little nook, where they can crawl in and lay down, whether it be small or large based on their size.
Another nifty pet-themed kitchen idea is to add some hidden drawers that can hold your animal’s food and water bowls! As Better Homes & Gardens mentions,
“Keep pet areas contained and out of the way. This all-in-one pet station keeps the kitchen clutter-free with plenty of cabinet space for storing pet food, toys, and more. A sliding drawer beneath the cabinet was fitted for feeding bowls, which slide out of sight while entertaining.”
Have a cat? This DIY tip is just for you! Usually, most keep their litter boxes in the kitchen, which can cause some dust and tracking of litter on the floor and walls! So you can make or even purchase an enclosed space just for the litter box that matches your decor! This litter box is the perfect size and color for your kitchen and your cat(s)!
