Accounting for Pets During NYC Bathroom Remodeling

Posted on May 1, 2019

For many people, their pets have an important role in their lives. Many people count their pets as part of the family and if your pet is usually making trips into your bathroom, then you may want to take note of the following points when making your NYC bathroom remodeling plans.

The bathroom is the one room in all homes with the highest incidence of accidents. Pets are no exception to this. A lot of people have pets that drink right out of the toilet, while this is unsightly, it could also prove fatal if you have recently used any chemical-cleaning agents on it. It may be in your best interests to use pet friendly cleaning products.

Another thing you should look out for is your pet swinging the door open whenever you leave it ajar while within the bathroom. Simply closing the door each time you use the bathroom should take care of that issue.

For people who own cats that like to play with the toilet paper by constantly rolling it, include enclosed toilet paper holders in your NYC bathroom remodeling plans.

Be sure to include proper storage areas for cleaning chemicals in your bathroom. If you leave them lying around, then your pets will have access to them and they may unknowingly taste them, as most pets are curious by nature.

When planning out your layout, put trash bins in corners or other areas where they will be difficult to topple over. On that note, people who keep litter boxes in the bathroom should make sure they are in a common pathway in your bathroom to avoid tripping over them.

It is also very important that you include hair screens on your drains to ensure your tubs do not clog whenever you bathe your pet. Non-slip surfaces surrounding the tub will also prevent many accidents should your pet become rowdy while bathing. Remember to include hand-held showerheads in your NYC bathroom remodeling plans to be able to clean your pets more easily.
