Dog Showers, Cat Rooms, and Private Pet Doors

Homes with Built In Pet Spaces

These Raleigh custom homes include all kinds of pet rooms and amenities. From dog doors and showers to cat rooms with play walls, check out photos of new homes with pet room designs.   

Pet Room Idea #1: Dog House Under the Stairs, Dog Shower by the Washer

Looking for efficient ways to build in pet areas? We turned this "unused" space under the staircase into a large dog house and tile dog shower. 



Inside this Dog Room: 

 - The black walls along half the room are done in chalkboard paint, for a combined pet / kid play area that keeps the dirt contained!

- The shower floor includes custom "puppy paw prints" in circular black tiles

- The shower head includes two built-in height adjustments, for hands-free baths for large and small pets

Pet Room Idea #2: Raised Height Dog Shower

For small breed dogs - and smaller pets - check out this raised height dog shower. 



Inside this Dog Room: 

 - The tall platform helps you bathe pets while standing - no more bending over muddy dogs with a garden hose!

 - The dog room has a dedicated glass French door that leads directly to the backyard deck, for a no mess transition from outdoor play time

Pet Room Idea #3: Mud Room with Dog Door

This mud room includes a doggie door, so your pets can come and go as they please.  



Inside this Mud Room: 

 - The mud room also has a door separating it from the rest of the house, so dogs can enter your home without full access to kitchen and living area

- The tile floor makes it easy to clean up messes - and will help dogs stay cool

Pet Room Idea #4: Cat Room

Yes - this is a custom room just for cats! The floating wall shelves are designed for cats to play during the day. 


Inside this Cat Room: 

 - The built-in desk and shelves will let you convert this cat room into a private, pocket office if desired in the future - making a dual use of the unique space 

- The engineered flooring makes an easy clean-up area for any kitty litter spills

Pet Room Idea #5: Pet Ramp

While we usually include ramps in wheelchair accessible homes, this home design is made for animal access to the pet room.



Pet Room Idea #6: Pet Access Door

Here's another pet ramp design, that gives animals direct access to the home, without needing to open the side or garage doors for them.
