One of the biggest advantages to building a custom home is that you’re able to incorporate specific features that would not be found in tract housing. For many people, pets are an integral part of the family and when designing a dream home, there are certain amenities that can be included to fully customize your home.
Designing a dedicated area for pets is a popular option for Ottawa custom homes. This space can include a separate bathing and grooming area, food and toy storage and can even be designed as a space to keep pets safe while the family is out.
Flooring and Wall Considerations
Having pets in the home means you should carefully consider the types of materials used. Hardwood floors or ceramic tiles are often the best choices in terms of durability and ease of cleaning. When choosing wall finishes—you’ll want to ensure that the paint or wallpaper is stain-resistant and easy to clean.
There are other factors to consider when designing a custom home to share with pets. You can include a central vacuuming system to conveniently clean up pet fur anywhere in the home. There are also upgrades to the HVAC system—like installing an air purification unit or using HEPA grade filters—that can trap allergens and improve the air quality indoors.
A benefit to designing a custom home is that you can include custom pet amenities that will allow you and your pets to live a more comfortable life.
