Creating your own pet bedroom is an actual concept that’s rising in popularity. Put down the kids’ Lego sets and cartoon posters, because pet bedrooms require plenty of snack areas, fun toy boxes, cozy blankets and pillows. We’ve compiled some of the best DIY pet room ideas, so you and your fur babies can live comfortably and happily!
#1. Cat Chalet
Although this cute cat chalet is not in its own bedroom per se, it certainly can be placed in a separate alcove or room where your divine feline can purr away the hours. It easily fits a comfy cushion for Fluffy to recline on, and the neutral color will fit into any décor. Finally, the angled roof makes an ideal spot for another furry friend to rest or spend the night.
#2. Dog Beds
There are so many great ideas in here for finding the perfect dog bed. You can go as fancy or as simple as you’d like. Odds are, your pooch is still going to find his bed cozy and full of love. Store bought beds are great, but if you can make it yourself, even better!
#3. Bunk Beds
Yes, all of our wildest dreams have come true. Dog bunk beds really exist! The proof is in this puppy themed post. You could easily recreate this dog bed out of repurposed crates or pallets, and these are items you can easily find around your neighborhood or even backyard.
#4. Nightstand Bed
This is a really great idea, because not only will Fido be super cozy and comfy, but it’s a great way to save space, too. Instead of having to fit another big piece of furniture in your bedroom space, why not utilize what you have and make the best out of both worlds?
#5. Large Bunk Beds
Just because you have a bigger dog, that doesn’t mean they can’t get in on the bedroom fun! These are essentially the same bunk bed concepts, only larger for our big fur babies. This is a super cute idea that will save space and give your fur baby their own sleeping quarters all to themselves.
#6. Cupboard Bedroom
Many homes come with large cupboard spaces, or even closets under the stairs that can make the perfect bedroom for a pet. This is a great space because it’s the perfect size for a dog or two, and is sure to make your pet feel safe, happy and cozy.
#7. Fluffy Bed
This fluffy, overstuffed pillow makes for the perfect dog bed. Just imagine how cozy he or she will be after a long walk when it’s time for a much-needed nap. This is another perfect spaces-saver, and you can get as fashionable as you want with it as far as texture and pattern goes.
#8. Wrought Iron Bed
It doesn’t matter how you decorate around this pet bed, the wrought iron metal and delicate cut-out patterns will add a touch of elegance and luxury to your pet’s personal snoozing and resting space. A thick pillow in any color for him to lie on will have your pet watching you from the comfort of this bed all day long.
#9. Step Cat Beds
These cat beds are arranged against this wall like a step ladder. They’re a great way to make sure all your cats have a warm bed to sleep in, all while preventing too much clutter in your home. Since cats are very agile and light on their feet, they can easily use these beds anytime they want.

#14. Pet Area
This pet area is just the thing you need if you don’t have a small bedroom space to put your fur babies in. This quaint space next to the stairs offers plenty of room for your pets to have access to their food, water and their cozy beds. You could even use a baby gate and crate them in if you need to leave them unattended for a while.
#15. Raised Bed
This raised bed makes the perfect platform bed for your pet, especially if your cat loves to be outdoors. Because it’s raised, the dew from the ground will not penetrate through the fabric of the pillow to make your pet uncomfortable. The sweet design also makes it a great raised bed for an indoor cat, fitting nicely into a bedroom scenario for your pet.
#16. Pet Area
Even if you don’t have a designated pet bedroom, this doesn’t mean you can’t have an equally great pet area. Anything as simple as a rug to a flat surfaced bed will make your pet just as happy. Trust me, they won’t be able to tell how fancy or simple their bed is, they just want it to be comfortable!
#17. Island Nook
This little nook sits inside a kitchen island bench. It’s a great idea just to have, since dogs always want to be around their humans, and what better way to make sure your pet is safely out of the way and prevent any accidental tripping?
#18. Pet Room
Whether it’s a pet room or a kid’s room, this room looks great. Some people’s pets are their kids, so if this is your situation, why not splurge on a room that looks as great as this one does? The dog in the picture seems to be happy, but how could he not be with that cozy setup?
#19. Hallway Pet Nook
Here is another nook idea for pets that would look invisible if it wasn’t opened up. It’s a hideaway spot that could double as a sitting area in a larger house. The spaces below the cushions open up to reveal a cozy spot for your pets to relax in, which is also great for extra storage.
#20. Designated Pet Space
This designated pet space looks great and has many details to it. It could be the perfect area for your dog to lounge around, and it’s also a fun way to keep all of his or her things together. Everyone will be impressed with how greatly organized it is!
#21. Pet Space
Here’s an interesting pet space that looks like it’s constructed from either a closet area, or a cupboard that was hollowed out and opened up. This would be the perfect nook for a smaller dog such as a chihuahua or Yorkshire terrier, since they don’t need a lot of space.
#22. Indoor Pet Shelter
An indoor pet shelter such as this fantastic setup has everything your pet may need. Plenty of space to stretch out in the sunlight and sleep, a space for food, water, an area for toys – it has it all! This would be the perfect setup for both cats and dogs.
#23. Log Cabin
This fantastic pet setup is found inside of a pet boarding center, but it basically looks like a mountain getaway up in the woods! You can easily recreate this log cabin setup, you just need to find the appropriate decorations and the space to execute this idea accordingly.
#24. Small Pet Space
This nifty little space proves you don’t need a huge pet space to make a fun, cozy area for your pet. This is a pretty area that has everything your pet may need. It’s also small enough to remain cozy, since some dogs like that crated feel without actually being crated.
#25. Dog Teepee
This cozy little teepee is the perfect spot for your small-sized pup to go and take a well-deserved nap alone or with doggie friend. Of course, your little pug or chihuahua may deem it his or hers, but don’t be surprised if your cat decides it’s going to be her place to snooze instead.
#26. Dog Basket
This dog basket is made from natural wood. Not only is this a great way to repurpose wood, but it’s free from any harsh chemicals or paint and won’t irritate your dog’s sensitive nose. Not to mention, it looks beautiful and would make a welcomed piece of furniture to the living room.
#27. Small Pet Bed
This may seem like a tiny pet bed, but it’s really the perfect size for a smaller dog. This would be like heaven to a tiny dog, because it’s small enough to make them feel secure, and the crown design will give them the royal status they deserve!
#28. Made for Royalty
This pet bed may seem a bit extra, but hey, some pets just need that flair in their lives! This is a bed fit for a king or queen, and the color accents on this bed are beautiful. The bed would look great near a holiday tree, or even within the sitting room area so everyone can see it.
