Living Room Design Ottoman

Would you like a dog crate that doesn't look like a canine jail cell? You're in luck: Dog crates today blend in with home furnishings like never before, and have been disguised to look like end tables, credenzas, Murphy beds, and more. They're a boon not only to decor-conscious dog owners, but to pooches, too—who truly do love having a space of their own in your home.

"Just like people enjoy having their own safe, cozy room where they can close the door and get away from all the commotion, dogs feel the same way about their crates," says professional animal trainer and behaviorist

Doree Sitterly.

So if you've had it with bulky, ugly dog prisons, check out these options below. They look so good, you might be tempted to buy one even if you didn't have a pet to put in it.

This sleek, powder-coated steel BowHaus crate, with a sliding door, would look great in a Mid-Mod living room. It comes in two sizes (small and medium) and three colors (silver, red, and black).

They note that with the decorative starburst ventilation design, it can also be used to hide the litter box. (DenHaus, $379.99 for a small and $397.99 for a medium)
