However, if you live in a smaller space or would rather not have a large, unappealing box sitting in your home, you might be wondering how to mix function and fashion with your pet-friendly furniture. The answer is simple: Seek out a well-made piece of dog crate furniture. These types of end tables or cabinets contain a full-size dog crate, but mask the usual utilitarian vibe of a crate in aesthetic wood.

It's not just better for you - these types of furniture pieces usually offer more protection and privacy for your dog, too.

Wondering what to look for in a piece of dog crate furniture? What are the pros and cons of something that feels this niche?

You'll likely want to look into an end table or cabinet that conceals a dog crate if you want to fill your home with natural materials that enhance your home's environment. Similarly, if you're looking to save space, this type of furniture can offer dual functionality - as opposed to a traditional dog crate.

You could even keep it up-front in a living or dining room, so your dog could have the comfort of being near you at all times.

The most common types of crate furniture tend to be made from solid wood. After all, even the smallest dogs are capable of moving around quite a bit - so you want your furniture to be stable. Fir, cedar, birch and pine are good choices, and they're also aesthetic and even sustainable.

Interested in this functional, appealing, multitasking furniture idea? It'll be a good idea to keep sanitary practices in mind; some dog trainers find the idea of crate furniture appealing, but note that wood crates can be hard to keep clean - and, if you have a younger or more active dog, you might find that your dog scratches this type of crate more easily.

Finally, you'll want to give some thought to size. Even though these pieces of furniture can be space-saving, you'll want to avoid cramping your dog. Ensure that your dog's crate is large enough for them to be able to stand up and turn around, and you should be good to go.
