Having a pet is a wonderful thing. They can fill our hearts with so much joy, but they can also fill our homes with a lot of stuff. Our pets’ toys and accessories add extra clutter that can quickly become an eyesore. To help your pet’s supplies blend in, here are a few ways to stylishly disguise them.
Find supplies that match your decor style
You no longer have to make do with silver food and water bowls or plain black crates since there’s a world of cute and aesthetically pleasing pet supplies available to you online. You can find wooden and ceramic bowls to add to your kitchen, crates of all shapes, sizes, and colors, and pet beds that will make you envious of your four-legged friend. These supplies can match your style and be fun accessories to the decor of your home.
Make the supplies multifunctional
Pet supplies can serve dual purposes in your home. For example, there are litter boxes that also work as side tables or plant stands, pet beds that look like living room ottomans, and furniture-style pet crates that work as credenzas, shelves, or entryway tables. This multifunctionality helps your supplies to not just simply take up room but have a specific use for both you and your pet.
Have a designated home for everything
An important part of making supplies like toys, treats, walking gear, and dry food less noticeable is having a spot for everything in your home. So you can create a feeding station in your laundry room, put treats in attractive canisters on your kitchen counters, and have storage bins and baskets in your living room that you can throw excess accessories in before company comes over—making it super easy to clean up the clutter.
Don’t let your pet’s stuff overrun your home. Instead, use these tips to seamlessly work it into your overall decor.
