Pet Parlor: Custom Cabinets with Your Pet in Mind. Genius!

I'm working on a few renovation projects for young families who all own a dog. Many of us pet owners will try to deny it, but our furry family members are almost as important as our kids! So, when I saw that Wood-Mode, one of our Blog Tour Vegas sponsors, created a new cabinetry line with pets in mind, I was intrigued. This new line is called Embassy Row Pet Parlor  and was featured at KBIS this year. I witnessed first-hand how they cleverly integrated pet and owner's storage needs seamlessly.  What also stood out to me was how beautiful craftsmanship was. I get pretty excited when great design, new ideas and the finest quality are considered. See for yourself in this video: "The ultimate treat for your pets and the people they own." Wood-Mode.


This new concept also doubles as a laundry room, which gives many of the design details a dual purpose (see island, integrated lockers, storage solutions, etc.). Too many of my clients have mudrooms and laundry rooms (pre-renovation) with next to zero useful storage and are usually the most neglected areas in the home. Wood-Mode's integrated cabinetry resolves all these issues and looks beautiful too. I don't know anyone who wouldn't appreciate this; even our furry family members. Genius!

Here are some of the features:

  • Island with Integrated Doors & Cabinets (Brushing & Grooming, Sorting & Folding)
  • Built-In Pet Fountain with Faucet System
  • Custom Hideaway Dog Dish Drawer with Adjacent Food Storage Bins
  • Storage Solutions for Bones, Toys & Biscuits
  • Integrated Lockers for Leash, Collar and Clothing Storage
  • Extra Large Sink for Bathing & Grooming
  • Integrated Appliances


Wood-Mode had another genius idea I loved. During KBIS they brought in several adorable puppies, training to be service dogs. Show attendees could take a #KBISSelfie with one of the puppies and post the picture on social media. For each picture posted Wood-Mode gave $5 to Susquehanna Service Dogs of Central Pennsylvania. No one could resist these sweet puppies and waited in a long line to take a selfie for this amazing cause. I really admire a company that share their success by giving back. They made a big difference that day. Kudos to them!

Here's my #KBISSelfie!


Also, if you have a moment to go on Wood-Mode's website, check out their new kitchen line called Oceanside.   "Perched along the rocky coast and fused in colors of its natural surroundings, this contemporary space provides a tranquil refuge for a long weekend or gathering with friends." I'll let you dream about that for a while!  xo
