Racine Mudroom Addition for Dogs
These clients were looking to update their kitchen and create a very functional, durable, and low maintenance design and sunroom for their home. With a busy lifestyle and five dogs, these veterinarians needed a better way to manage their space around their family’s needs.
Starting out with the kitchen, this is the space where their dogs previously ate twice a day and drank water on a routine basis. As you can imagine, the dogs were taking over their cooking space. The conclusion was to update the kitchen to a traditional design with modern appliances and then build a mud room addition to provide plenty of resources for the dogs.
After the renovation, the dogs have their own personal bowls and a customized washing area for when they come in from outside. The standing height dog washing station includes a Sterling shower base and Delta wall mount hand shower for easy washing without back pain. Even better, the lower cabinet opens up exposing retractable stairs for the retrievers’ easy access to bathing. An Elkay under mount sink for fresh water and easy draining was complimented by a Kohler Purist Lavatory faucet. These dogs quite possibly are the only ones with their own under mount sink!
On the opposite side of the washing station is plenty of cabinet space for dog food and other items. Hooks were also conveniently added for hanging leashes by the door. As if this was not enough, the dogs can exit the mud room and run into the fenced backyard with their own in-ground pool!
The dogs love the new amenities but the homeowners have a spectacular kitchen, improved dining/coffee experience, efficient flow from the kitchen to the backyard, and functional designs to make their life easier.
