The pandemic has drastically changed people’s relationship with their homes and how they use their space. Some home-bound owners are coming up with creative ways to transform their mudrooms and laundry rooms into showers for their furry friends. Philadelphia-based designer Lucy O’Brien helped a Wayne client do just that.  

O’Brien was creating a maximalist-style mudroom when she also built the shower for the clients two dogs, writes Lia Picard for The Washington Post. This washroom is accessible to the outside to prevent the dogs from trekking in dirt or other debris.  

But there’s more to dog grooming that these washrooms can be used for, such as watering plants, cleaning gardening tools, or watering off mud from toddlers playing outside.

To build the perfect in-home grooming station Picard lists the following:  

  • Choose the right height 
  • Make sure tile is safe for the dog but also durable 
  • Make space for clean and dirty towels  
  • Remember they’re not just for dogs!
