Install a shower basin and floor drain in your mudroom to collect wet footwear. Add a wall faucet and flexible hose attachment for rinsing off mud and debris. (It's also handy for a quick pet bath.) And don't forget to include a fold-down bench for putting on shoes or stacking a few cleanup towels.
I'm pinning this because it actually takes into account what the chore of washing a dog is like. The raised shower floor means you (the cleaner) do not have to break your back as you carry out the routine dog cleaning. I think for each area and task...how you feel is important...here for example, you may want a toe space like the cupboards have so you can step a little closer without discomfort.
one day when we finally re-do our basement laundry area, i want a laundry room with lots of storage, counter space and a shower for chad to wash off after he gets grassy and stinky outside. and i want it to be totally gorgeous. that is all. :)
