The Dog-Friendly Bathroom

 In Bathroom, blog

We don’t deserve dogs. But we get to have their joyful presence in our lives anyway. Many dog owners do practically everything with their beloved pooch, including take lazy naps on the couch and play in the park. After those messy, fun days outside, Fido needs a bath. It can be a major chore if you’re not equipped for it, and if you’re planning a bathroom remodel, it may be smart to consider not just your needs, but your furry companion as well. Here’s what Denver metro residents should know about creating a dog-friendly bathroom.

Open Shower

If you’re not dedicated to your bathtub, it might be a good idea to change the shower design to a more open design. You can create a shower stall with a small curb, or even no curb at all, which will be so much easier for getting in and out of when you’re wrangling your pooch.

Bathroom Design

Traction

Human or canine, nobody wants to slip in the shower. Consider a non-skid surface for your shower floor, which will give you both more traction.

Detachable Showerhead

If you ever plan on giving your pup a washing up in the bathroom, you’ll find that a detachable showerhead is a lifesaver. This style of showerhead pulls out from the fixture, allowing you the flexibility to move around and help get the doggo cleaned up.

Tile Flooring

If you have pets, a tile floor is going to be your best friend. It’s durable, and when your dog decides to do the dreaded post-bath shake off, water is going to go everywhere, and having a tile floor will be easy to clean.

Protect Cabinets

Pets are curious creatures and have a habit of getting into mischief. In a bathroom, you may keep cleaning products and bathroom supplies in the cabinet—install locks or stoppers to put a stop to temptation. And if you’ve never seen what a dog can do to a toilet paper roll, you don’t want to start now.
