Life isn't just about surviving (though some Mondays can feel that way)\u2014it's about thriving, and your dream home should make that easier for you, not harder . For this reason, the Miescisko Whole Home Project sought to make a concept home that was truly a sanctuary of self-care\u2014for every member of your family. Furry ones included. While studies have shown that having a pet can help you live longer , the day-to-day tasks of caring for a pet\u2014constantly vacuuming up canine fur, mopping up muddy paw prints, and/or drying up drool\u2014can be exhausting. The solution? A "doggy room" designed specifically with the furriest, muddiest, and most slobbery mutts in mind. Don't worry, though, it's actually stunning. Other than the bed, bowl & leash , and BAXTER wallpaper , you'd never know it was meant for a dog\u2014and might even want to claim the room for yourself. Featuring a wall of windows that opens to be the most inconspicuous doggy door you'll ever see, the room is picture perfect. Add in the cozy bed and cabinetry\u2014ideal for hiding food, treats, toys, and other pet swag\u2014and it's the dream getaway for your pups. As chic as the room is, there are playful touches, too, like this custom dog-bone grille from Architectural Grille : One of the most ingenious\u2014yet simple\u2014ideas is trading in a traditional door for a half door. "I love that I could put my pup in here when she's muddy, close the half door, and know she's not behind a closed wall," Sherry Hart, one of HB Whole Home's interior designers, shared. While knowing your pet feels safe and secure wherever you leave them is half the battle, keeping said room clean is definitely another cause for concern. Thankfully, a designated pet tub and shower with DXV fixtures makes the battle so much easier\u2014both on your back and your otherwise clean home. After washing and drying your pup, you deserve to toss in the towel...and you can, literally. The room also features an LG stackable washer/dryer, ready to tackle dirty towels, dog beds, and even gym clothes . Follow Miescisko on Instagram .
