DIY Pet Furniture for Your Apartment

DIY Pet Furniture for Your Apartment

Today the Renaissance Place Apartments Blog has some great ideas for creating DIY pet furniture for your furry or gilled friends. If you’re fortunate enough to have a pet, we know how hard it is to find a place for their furniture without overtaking even the biggest apartments, homes, mansions, or sprawling city limits. But we also know how important it is that they have a place they belong — both inside and out. Fear not! Because we’ve heard your cry for help, we’ve brought together a few of our favorite space-saving DIY apartment solutions for your pet. You can explore them all below.

  1. Apartment Cat Shelves

If you’re a proud cat owner, you’re probably all too familiar with shreds of cardboard from the all mighty scratch towers. These carpeted shelves are a great way to cut down on unnecessary shreds. By making use of unused wall space, you’ll also free up more storage in your living room. All you’ll need for this one is a trip to IKEA and squares of Flor carpet. Head on over to The Hip Soiree for the simple step-by-step.

  1. Gumball Machine Fish Tank

Fish tanks and supplies can take up a lot of space. If your underwater friend happens to be a freshwater fish, this DIY gumball fish tank idea is a creative way to incorporate a fun sense of design with a streamlined home. Though this one may take a little more work, the finished product is worth its weight in gold. Instructables has the how-to on their site.

  1. Pet Crate Cover/Bench Seat

This idea is fit for both cats and dogs. This DIY table features three walls of enclosure and a spacious opening for your furry friend to comfortably get in and out whenever they want. With airy breathing holes on all sides, they’ll still feel connected and a part of the room. If you’re as interested in this idea as we are, HGTV has the walkthrough over on their site.

As you’re trying out any of these ideas, be sure to post photos of your process and finished product in your Williamsville, NY apartment. Whether you made modifications of your own or have an idea you’d like to share, we’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
