21. Location: Orlando, USAFeatures: An outdoor spot to wash the dogs makes so much sense!
Try not to bring the outside inHelping the outside and inside of our homes flow together is a lovely idea when you’re thinking only about interior design. Apply that concept to a cat with mucky paws or a big dog who’s just had a wallow in a puddle, though, and it’s not so pleasing. Pets often walk mud and rainwater into a home, so be prepared for a blurring of in and out, thanks to your animal.You could always install an outdoor shower, specially designed for washing a dirty dog. The cheaper option is to dig out some old towels and a bucket!
