Ah, home sweet home! Everybody needs their own space — even our pets. So when we found out about a woman who transformed the space under her staircase into a room for her dog, we set out on a mission to find other ways people have made their dogs to (quite literally) feel at home. Let's be honest, outdoor dog houses are okay in the warm months, but winter is coming and it's cozy inside. The solution? Build your pet an indoor house, crate, or kennel. To help you get inspired, we collected the most interesting and fun ideas to make your pup's digs part of your home's interior.
From a sleek, modernist house to a full replica of the White House, we are pretty sure we got all styles covered.
1. This one earns extra points for seasonal decor.
2. Apolo looks like he does not want to be bothered in his tipi.
3. This dog crate is built into the mudroom. (But what really caught our eye is that sign.)
4. This pup is living in the lap of luxury with a matching bed and dresser.
5. This dog bed does double duty as a feeding station.
6. That awkward lobby space beside the stairs? It's been transformed here into a canine oasis.
7. Is there anything you can't make with a wooden pallet?
8. Lacking kitchen space but still want to give your dogs a space of their own? Have a crate built under the kitchen counter — problem solved.
9. This dog crate is stowed away under the table, minimizing space but in close reach.
10. Fairly obsessed with this idea: it's hidden in a side table.
12. Okay, so when can we move in?
