Pet Friendly Kitchen Design - KBC Direct

For a kitchen that’s truly the “heart” and “hub” of the home, don’t forget Fluffy and Fido! With our kitchens acting so much like a “family room,” we like to create designs with your furry pals in mind.

Here are some great ideas to make your kitchen a warm and inviting space for family and pets alike.
