East Meadow pet owners know that caring for a dog, cat, or other animals also means having an assortment of pet-related things. Beds, toys, dishes, leashes, and more can quickly become messy easily if you don’t have a way to keep them organized. There are some practical ways to keep your pet accessories under control and easy to find. By adopting any of these techniques, you can easily keep your pet’s area organized and your home clutter-free.
Pet Feeding Station
The best way to keep your pet’s area clean and look great is to create a pet feeding station. A feeding station should have a bin for food and treats, hooks for leashes and accessories, and a pull-out drawer with food bowls. This ensures that everything is going to stay organized in its place. You might also buy or repurpose a cabinet, side table, or other pieces of furniture, which complements your current interior design.
Another ideal way to keep your pet’s accessories organized is with a walking station. Start using pet-themed wall décor, hooks, decorative baskets, or other elements to create a place to hang accessories and put essential things in one area. At that point, when you want to take your dog, cat, or even an iguana out for a stroll, it is easy to find anything you need.
Pet beds can take up a lot of floor space. Why not maximize your square footage by making storage designed to fit underneath a pet bed? With a couple of boxes or drawers and some time and energy, you can create a bed frame that has space for storing toys, grooming supplies, and accessories. By using drawers, you also put all your pet’s things neatly out of sight when not in use.
Creative Storage Ideas
Of course, even finding attractive storage bins or baskets can go a long way toward keeping your pet’s area organized. You may use a set of nesting bins or baskets to gather stuff with various sizes. These can be placed neatly in a corner or tucked in a convenient spot. Or perhaps purchase an ottoman or chest that can use for toys as well as other things. Ottomans and chests can do double-duty as great furniture pieces in a living room, adding aesthetic appeal while keeping your pet’s things all in one place.
If you need lots of storage, you could even repurpose an old armoire, cabinet, or other pieces of furniture to use for pet supplies. Pre-owned furniture pieces have always been easy to find and easy to afford and can be painted to fit the interior décor of your home.
One of the quickest ways to maintain a tidy pet area is to de-clutter on a regular basis. Donate or throw out old leashes, broken toys, and any food items your pet won’t eat. Just keep the ones that you and your pet use often. Consider donating anything in good condition to a local rescue or shelter. In this matter, you can help out other pets while you have fewer things to keep in order.
