Purr-fect Spot for Cat Bowls

Pets are treasured members of the family, and as such have a special place in our homes.  So when planning for a new kitchen, this family made sure to incorporate the needs of their cat, just as they would for any other member of the family. “Each person has a designated place to eat or drink, so it was natural to create the same type of space for the family pet,” says Normandy Designer Ann Stockard.

Accounting for the needs of your pet is just one of the ways that your kitchen remodel can be tailored to the unique needs of your home. Schedule a time to talk about your upcoming kitchen renovation or register for an educational kitchen seminar to get a primer on prepping for your remodel.
