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

Reno Tenant Spending a Lazy Afternoon with Their DogReno 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 cluttered mess unless you have a way to keep them organized. There are numerous artistic techniques to keep your pet accessories under control and easy to find. By practicing one or more of these approaches, you can naturally keep your pet’s area organized and your home clutter-free.

Pet Feeding Station

An excellent way to keep your pet’s area clean and good-looking 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. In this way, everything will stay correctly in place. You could even buy or repurpose a cabinet, side table, or other pieces of furniture, something that will blend in with your present décor.

Walking Station

Another excellent idea to keep your pet’s accessories organized is with a walking station. Consider utilizing pet-themed wall décor, hooks, decorative baskets, or other elements to create a place to hang accessories and keep necessary items in one place. Then, when it’s time to take your dog, cat, or even an iguana out for a stroll, you’ll have everything you want.

Under-Bed Storage

Pet beds can take up a lot of floor space. Why not maximize your square footage by building some storage meant to fit underneath a pet bed? With a few bins or drawers and some creativity, you could create a bed frame that has space for storing toys, grooming supplies, and accessories. By utilizing drawers, you also put all your pet’s things neatly out of sight when not in use.

Creative Storage Ideas

Of course, even just opting for any attractive storage bins or baskets can go a long way toward keeping your pet’s area organized. You could work on a set of nesting bins or baskets to accumulate items of various measurements. These can be placed easily in a corner or tucked in a convenient spot. Or maybe spend money in a good ottoman or chest that can be used for toys and other items. 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 require more space, 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 obtain and low-priced to buy and can be painted to match your home’s interior décor.

De-Clutter Regularly

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