Organizing Your Pet’s Space When You’re Renting a Home in Roanoke

Roanoke Tenant Spending a Lazy Afternoon with Their DogRoanoke 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 a significant problem, unless you have a way to keep them organized. There are many useful ways to keep your pet accessories under control and easy to find. If you implement at least one of these approaches, you can easily keep your pet’s area organized and your home clutter-free.

Pet Feeding Station

A good idea to keep your pet’s area clean and looking great is to create a pet feeding station. A feeding station could have a bin for food and treats, hooks for leashes and accessories, and a pull-out drawer with food bowls. In this way, everything will stay neatly in place. You can also buy or repurpose a cabinet, side table, or other pieces of furniture, something that fits with your current interior decoration.

Walking Station

Another method to keep your pet’s accessories organized is with a walking station. Consider using pet-themed wall décor, hooks, decorative baskets, or other elements to create a place to hang accessories and put things that you need in one spot. And after that, when you want to take your dog, cat, or even an iguana out for a stroll, you can quickly get everything you need.

Under-Bed Storage

Pet beds can take up a lot of floor space. Why don’t you maximize your square footage by creating storage that’s supposed to fit underneath a pet bed? With some boxes or drawers and a little creativity, you can create a bed frame that has space for storing toys, grooming supplies, and accessories. By utilizing drawers, you also put all your pet’s things neatly out of sight if you are not using it.

Creative Storage Ideas

Just choosing on some attractive storage bins or baskets will go a long way towards keeping your pet’s area organized. You may use a set of nesting bins or baskets to store objects of various sizes. They can be put in a corner or tucked in a convenient spot. Or you might spend extra money on an ottoman or chest that can be used for toys and many different 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 want extra storage, you could even repurpose an old armoire, cabinet, or other pieces of furniture to use for pet supplies. Pre-owned furniture pieces are regularly easy to find and less costly to purchase and be painted according to the interior decoration of your home.

De-Clutter Regularly

One of the smart ways to keep an organized 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 make sure to keep the things that you and your pet use often. Consider donating anything in good condition to a local rescue or shelter. In this manner, you’re going to help out other pets and have reduced the things that you need to keep organized all at once.
