Pet Friendly Bathroom Upgrades

Having a pet around the house can be great; but you should take proper precautions to  keep your furry friends safe. When renovating your bathroom, you might want to take your pets into consideration. Many of them will be a benefit to you, as well as your pet.

Pet Friendly Showers

    Showers that make it easier to give your pet a wash can be very helpful, and very modern. A curbless shower reduces the risk of tripping; for both you and your pet. This type of shower is safer, because it reduces the risk of falls when you take your everyday shower; while also making it easier when it is bath time for your pet.
    Non-slip surfaces in the shower will help you be safer in the shower, while helping your pet feel less nervous at bath time. Pets that don’t like baths are often afraid of getting hurt on the sleek floor.
    Detachable shower heads help you get all the hard to reach places; but they also make cleaning your cat or dog easier. A detachable shower head gives you greater control when getting the last of the suds, or avoiding water in their ears.

Litter Box Nook

    A litter box is a necessary but unsightly part of cat ownership. When renovating your bathroom, consider adding a litter box nook. Transform part of your bathroom cabinetry into a nook for your cat’s litter box. This way, the litter box is out of sight but is still accessible. 

Tile Floors

    Tile floors are the best choice for a pet-friendly bathroom. Tile is durable, easy to clean, and waterproof. It makes it easier for you to clean up after your dog shakes off his wet fur to dry off. Tile is also available in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and designs; so you can find ones that fit your style.

Toilet Lids

    Not every homeowner opts for a toilet seat lid. But if you have a pet, it can be helpful in a number of ways. Toilet seat lids can be used to sit more comfortably when washing your pet in the tub. But they can also be used to protect your pet. We all know the common trope of a dog drinking out of the toilet. But this can make them extremely sick, or even poisoned; when you use toilet cleaners. For smaller, more agile pets, like cats, an uncovered toilet can be a potential drowning hazard. Cats can sometimes fall into the toilet, where the cupped edge and funnel-like interior can be difficult to escape from. Toilet seat covers can be helpful in protecting your pet’s health and well-being. If your pet continues to access the toilet, consider adding a child-proof cover.

Locking Cabinets

    Locking cabinets can keep your children, and your furry friends, out of your beauty products, cleaning chemicals, and medicines that they can otherwise access. If your pet gets into those items, they can easily make a mess of them, or get sick. Protect your children, pets, and your products from each other with locking cabinets.
