If you have an old cabinet with no purpose, transform it into a luxury day bed for your canine companion to rest in after a long walk. Make sure to remove any nails or sharp objects first, then add in soft comforts such as toys, cushions and blankets to put your dog at ease when they test out the space.

Transform your under-the-stairs storage space into a new room for your pet. It’s a great way to give your dog their own private area for relaxing in, while making the most of wasted space. You can deck it out like any other room by adding in a door, light and furnishing, or go for a stripped back look with their familiar favourites.

Make an at-home grooming parlour

Install a shower or wash station in your utility room or kitchen to wash down muddy paws after a walk. It will stop your pooch from destroying the house and making a mess of the bath.

Test out your carpentry skills by making your pooch their very own dog house. It will give your furry friend somewhere comfortable to rest while they enjoy the garden, and will also allow them some breathing space from house guests.

If you’re lucky enough to have a spare room in the house, consider turning it into a bedroom for your dog. This will give them their own space to retreat to when they get tired and also gives you the chance to go crazy with doggy decor.

If you decide to give any of these ideas a go, I'd love to see your transformations. Send me your pictures on Facebook.
