It’s no secret that Americans are pet lovers. If you’re building a new home in McKinney, TX, there’s a good chance that a dog, cat, or both will be moving in with you. According to the American Pet Products Association, roughly 62 percent of U.S. households have a pet, with dogs favored by a majority, followed by cats. There’s even a holiday dedicated to them – National Pet Day on April 11.
Here are a few creative ways to accommodate the family pet in your new home in McKinney TX:
Denhaus specializes in creating designer crates for dogs made out of fiberglass, metal and wood. These attractive crates can double as night stands in your bedroom, or as an end table in your living room. In a similar fashion, The Refined Feline makes cat furniture, including cat towers, beds and shelves. They even feature attractive wood litter boxes!
You might talk with the builder for your McKinney TX new home about installing pet doors, a cat archway, or built-in benches and racks in entryways to store dog leashes, pet toys and supplies. Other options to consider include installing heavy duty screening on windows and doors to prevent damage from pets. Wood floors and high end linoleum for flooring will make it easier to clean up after pet accidents. You can also install stain-resistant carpeting as well.
When choosing cabinets for your new home in McKinney TX, take into account what size containers you use for pet food storage, and make sure the cabinets will be large enough to accommodate them. Also, think about installing a mop sink (low profile floor sink) in the garage for dog bathing. Dog owners might also want to install a chain link kennel in a garage that connects to an exterior dog run. If you plan to install a security system, ask your supplier whether you can have pet immune motion sensors.
