No matter how handsome your dog is, his crate can look like an eyesore when it's in your living room. When you're looking for a unit that suits your decor, options range from crates that look like tables to crates that appear to be modern sculptures and everything in between!
Midwest Heritage Collection
While not actually a crate, the Midwest Heritage Collection can spruce up your current crate enough that you don't need to buy a new one. The Heritage Collection is a crate cover that looks like a table. It's perfectly sized to the popular sizes of crates, though, and can cover 24-inch, 36-inch and 42-inch crates. It's priced economically and is quite sturdy. It comes in only one wood finish, cherry.
New Age Pet Habitat n' Home
This sturdy, wooden, mission-style end table has lots of storage -- for your dog. This crate is suitable for large breeds, features a swinging door with a latch and lots of ventilation. No tools are necessary to put it together, and while the espresso finish looks really nice as-is, the crate can be painted to your liking.
The DenHaus ZenHaus combines extremely sleek, modern styling with a cozy cave for your dog built into its tables. This crate comes in several colors, including red, moss green, white and black, and two sizes for dogs under approximately 50 pounds. This fiberglass crate includes an opaque, shatter-proof glass top for extra light, ventilation on all sides and a removable door.
AlumaDen Round Paw Print Dog Crate
The AlumaDen Round Paw Print Crate is an adorable crate that looks like a modern, dog-themed end table. It's extremely lightweight and sleek. The cutest aspect, though, is the bone and paw-print shaped ventilation holes. It has a sliding door and a pad that comes in several colors. Unfortunately, this crate is only suitable for small dogs.
