The nice thing about furniture style crates is very simply that you don't have to worry about where you place them: no matter where they are in your home, they should be able to complement, rather than detract from, your decor. This makes them especially good for small spaces, such as studio apartments.
When you're purchasing your furniture style crate, think about the types of furniture you need in your home! Are you looking for a functional end table for your living room or bedroom?
Think also about the type of space you have available. If you have a spare corner in your home that you could house your pet in, take note of that! There are corner-style end tables that double as crates you can use for any size of pet.
Consider the following areas of your home for good places to style your furniture crate:
Living Room: Between end tables on either side of a couch, accent tables, or even larger coffee tables, you likely have a need for many different types of tables in your main living area! Being able to use that table in a multifunctional way will help you save space - and money. Putting your furniture style crate on either side of a couch, next to an easy chair, or simply against an available wall or corner, is likely a good place to start.
Bedroom: Does your pet like to be near you when sleeping? If so, then you can cater to that need and buy yourself an attractive bedside table in one fell swoop! Consider the height of your bed and the width available on the wall in your bedroom. Purchasing a furniture-style crate that can function this way can save you space and money.
Kitchen: Do you have a kitchen island? If not: do you want one? If your kitchen has a large amount of floor space and you'd like to have more counters in your kitchen, consider purchasing a furniture-style crate that's topped with a butcher-block style surface. This will allow your pet to live in the heart of your home and keep you company while you're cooking.
