How to Hide a Pet Crate In Your Decorating


Interior decorating often involves finding the perfect color of paint, furniture and artwork. Few think about how to incorporate a pet crate into home décor. But if you are like many pet owners who have a new canine in your home, it’s a common dilemma. A crate is a necessity for a new puppy to give the animal a sense of security. But it's not usually a decorative item. Make your pet’s crate a part of your home décor, and you won’t have to hide it when friends or family come to visit.

Things You'll Need

  • Crate cover
  • Blanket
  • Curtain
  • Tablecloth
  • Place the crate against a wall that is similar to the color of the crate, or place the crate against a piece of furniture made of similar material so it blends in and becomes less obvious.

  • Purchase a crate that is custom-designed for your home décor. Crates can be created from a variety of materials such as wicker, wire and wood. Select a material that accents your home décor.

  • Purchase a dog crate cover that accents your home décor. Crate covers are solid colored or have decorative prints on them such as paisley, floral or stripes. Another option is to purchase a crate cover that has a gathered skirt, which makes the dog crate look like a small table covered in a luxurious tablecloth when not in use.

  • Conceal the crate with a blanket or curtain that matches the décor or color scheme in the room.

  • Consider using the crate as an end table. Place an attractive tablecloth over the crate. Make sure the drape is tucked up so your puppy can get in.
