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

Cerritos Tenant Spending a Lazy Afternoon with Their DogCerritos 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 headache, unless you have a way to keep them organized. There are plenty of unique ways to keep your pet accessories under control and easy to find. By applying several of these techniques, you can easily keep your pet’s area organized and your home clutter-free.

Pet Feeding Station

An extraordinary method to keep your pet’s area clean and look impressive 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. So, all will stay safely in place. You might also buy or repurpose a cabinet, side table, or other pieces of furniture, anything that fits in with your current home decoration.

Walking Station

Another convenient way to keep your pet’s accessories organized is with a walking station. Start putting pet-themed wall décor, hooks, decorative baskets, or other elements to create a place to hang accessories and keep essential materials in a particular area. So, when it is the best time to take your dog, cat, or even an iguana out for a stroll, everything you need is ready.

Under-Bed Storage

Pet beds can take up a lot of floor space. Why not maximize your square footage by constructing additional space designed to fit underneath a pet bed? With a few bins or drawers and some hard work, you could 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

Naturally, even selecting for some attractive storage bins or baskets will go a long way toward keeping your pet’s area organized. You could utilize a set of nesting bins or baskets to gather things of different sizes. These can be placed tidily in a corner or tucked in a convenient spot. On the other hand, you can purchase an ottoman or chest which can use for toys and other goods. 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 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 often easy to find and affordable to buy and can be painted to match the interior decoration of your home.

De-Clutter Regularly

One of the less stressful 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. Only keep the things that you and your pet use often. Consider donating anything in good condition to a local rescue or shelter. In this way, you can help out other pets and, at the same time, have fewer items to keep organized.
