Creating a Custom Dog Room In Your Home

I always wanted to have a room in my home that celebrated my love of dogs. Being the Mom of three fur kids, I thought it would be the ultimate way to showcase all of my dog collectibles that Iíve amassed over the years, my puppy-theme artwork, all of my dogís clothing and accessories, and even my newly acquired dog-grooming table. Being a creative person, it gave me a chance to really think ďoutside the box,Ē since I could not find much information or any inspirational ideas or books on this subject. What little ideas I found were either way too elaborate or expensive or far too scaled down and therefore not cute enough for my taste. So, I set out to create something fun, cute, and imaginative, using my own vision. You too can create such a room in your home!

As more and more moms and dads experience their human kids leaving the nest, the fur kids become the primary focus.  Take your one of your empty rooms and create an amazing, fun dog room.  The only limits are your creativity (and budget). Here are some ideas to help get you started.

Pet Armoire
Pet armoires, or dog closets, have really been gaining in popularity in the last several years. As more and more dogs are sporting a wardrobe that is more elaborate (and even sometimes outnumbers) the human members of their family, an armoire just makes sense.  These cute closets help to keep your dogís clothes organized and wrinkle-free. In addition, you canít help but love that the clothing is now displayed in an adorable fashion. Many closets come with matching fashionable hangers, but you can always use baby size clothes hangers, as your pupís wardrobe grows.

Toy Box
A cute toy box or basket is a necessity for your dog room, since you surely need something to display all your dogís fun toys and keep them in a place where your pup has easy access. Designer dog toys, such as Chewy Vuiton and Sniffany look especially fun and festive when displayed so nicely.

Dining Dishes

There are so many fun and whimsical dog dishes to choose from.   Choose a fancy wrought iron elevated dining set, if it matches your dog room theme.  Or, stick with a darling placemat and matching dishes.  Upscale Pup has so many playful, fun bowl sets to choose from.

Flooring and Paint
The other element you many want to consider for your dog room is the flooring. Soft carpeting and numerous dog theme style rugs create a welcome and fun environment for you and your dog. Choose carpeting that hides stains and dirt.

Paint the walls a soothing color that calms your dog, such as light green, or a pale creamy yellow. Decorate your bare walls with cute framed photos of you and your family with your dog and other dog theme artwork. 

Soothing Music
If you plan to have your pup spend lots of time in your dog room, (perhaps while youíre at work), a stereo system or boom box would be a great idea. There are lots of dog-theme music CDs you can play for you dog. Simply set your stereo or CD player to "repeat all" and it will play all day for your pup.  Classical music also works well for creating a soothing environment.

Themes
Here's where you can get really creative and decorate with your favorite theme!  For example, a French Poodle would love a French theme dog room, a Chihuahua lover might enjoy a Mexican or Southwestern theme, and European breed dogs would match best with a Chalet, Mediterranean Villa, a Castle, or a Victorian style room.  It helps to use cues from both you and your dogís personality to design the room of your dreams.

Furniture
The choices in this category are enormous.  I put a daybed in my dog room, complete with pillows that are breed-specific (to match the breeds of my own pups) and placed cute dog stuffed animals all around the bed, also to match my dog's breeds.  Nowadays you can get your dog a chaise lounge or a doggie size sofa.  Be sure that the bedding is not only cute, but comfy as well.

Entertainment
Install a flat screen TV on one of your walls, with a built-in DVD (to play your doggie theme DVDs and dog movies).  This little entertainment system will help to capture your pup's attention and amuse them while you're away.

Doggie Door
Consider installing a doggie door, if possible, in your dog room. This will allow your pup to conveniently access their fenced yard while your away, when nature calls. Be certain that your fenced yard is completely secure.

Luxury Custom Dog Houses
Of course, if you really want to create something truly decadent, consider having a custom doghouse made for your pup.  Be aware that things have really changed since the days of the "Snoopy" style doggie houses! Several companies create the most amazing dog mansions; so luxurious you will want one, too.
