5 Ideas for Decorating Your Pet House

5 Ideas for Decorating Your Pet House

If you have a furry friend wandering around your family home, why not upgrade their sleeping arrangements with a brand new pet house?

Whether you own a rabbit, a guinea pig, or a dog, dedicating a space for them to live outside is a great way to keep them safe, warm, and happy. 

To enhance the appeal of your garden, get creative by decorating your pet house, making it a more enjoyable experience for your pet. Today, Atlas Sheds will walk you through five ideas to upgrade your pet house with style.

1. Adding Comfort with Soft Furnishings

Your pet deserves the best, so why not give it to them?

Soft furnishings can provide comfort and warmth to your pets, especially during chilly nights. Add in a small pet bed with cushioned pads and soft materials for the perfect place to sleep. This is especially important for older animals with joint issues or illnesses.

Microfiber and fleece are great options as they are resistant to wear and tear. Make the space extra cosy with small pet blankets and pillows for the ultimate relaxation den. 

Hay is a great option for rabbits as they can lay and nibble on it. 

2. Uplift the Interior Design

Whilst your pet may not care what the inside of their pet house looks like, it can be fun to decorate it to add style and creativity to your garden.

Use non-toxic paint to paint the outside of your pet house in beautiful pastels or rich, earthy hues. This will blend seamlessly with the surrounding nature. 

Within the pet house, set aside distinct areas for sleeping, feeding, and playing with toys and add easy-to-clean feeding stations. 

Add in soft plush toys for your pet to play with to keep them entertained throughout the day. 

3. Improving Ventilation and Lighting

Proper ventilation and lighting are essential for the safety and well-being of your pet. 

If your pet house doesn’t have many windows, install some windows that can be opened and closed for fresh air or add wall and roof vents for better airflow.

This natural light will also help to regulate your pet's circadian rhythm for better sleep and eating habits.

4. Safety Features

Your pet's safety is paramount over anything else. 

Ensure that you install robust locks on all doors and windows to prevent them from escaping or being abducted. Remove any small objects that could cause a choking hazard and ensure any small parts are securely fastened to the house. 

If necessary, add pet heating or cooling pads to their pet house, ensuring there are no exposed wires or chewable bits on these devices. Regularly inspect your pet's house for sharp edges, splinters, or loose parts that could injure your pet.

Consider adding motion sensors around the house and a pet camera to keep an eye on them whilst you’re out and about.

5. Exterior Enhancements

To enhance the aesthetic of your pet house, consider installing pet-friendly flowers around the perimeter of the house.

Climbing vines, such as clematis or honeysuckle, can create shade and add an earthy touch to the structure. For a creative look, install a small path leading up to your pet's house or a small patio area infront of the house for them to play on. 

Install a fence around the house to allow your rabbit or guinea pig to explore the outside garden without getting lost or injured, and add a pet drinking fountain for a constant supply of fresh water.
