Personally, we believe every dog should have a crate – a safe place they can go when things get a little crazy or overwhelming. Something that is “their own” place to wind down.
We have always had crates for our dogs – our girls Ginger & Riley that we got as puppies would enjoy their crate together and use it to sleep and just chill. Our current girl Cleo is filled with high anxiety and stress and will often retreat to her crate because it is her safe zone. Unfortunately, the crate we have – while we love it and recommend it, is plain ugly. Black wire does not make for great decor I have learned.
So my quest to find dog crates that look like furniture began – and what I realized quickly is that the choices are overwhelming!
This list exclusively focuses on wood dog crates that look like furniture and that we would consider in our home! There are other options out there as well including metal dog crates and plastic dog crates – designed to look like furniture but we do not think they add a nice element to your home so did not include those.
All the items below have exceptional reviews and a positive sentiment around the web so you can be sure any one of these options will make a great and comfortable addition to your home! The crates in this list are primarily for small to mid-sized dogs only!
Affordable Dog Crate Furniture
The furniture looking dog crates below have all been thoroughly reviewed and are those we believe will be top picks for you! With options and great reviews and sentiment around the web, they are the top of the top – and the most affordable options for your home.
Most of these furniture styled dog crates are under $250!
Casual Home Pet Crate End Table
The Casual Home pet crate is a beautiful table look with a variety of options making it one of our top picks. There are several different color options that makes it a perfect option for any decor type. It also is available in several sizes making it one of the few furniture styled dog crates that works for small to large dogs.
It is a traditional style making it a perfect fit for any home decor. The solid wood construction is from sustainably sourced wood which is a great feature as well.
Overall it has great reviews although a few people said their dogs have chewed the wood or found their dogs to be a little too strong for it. If your dog is a chewer or super hyper and hates crates, these style of crates in general may not be right for them!
Zoovilla Pet Crate End Table
This stylish pet crate from Zoovilla makes a beautiful and useful crate as well as a stunning side or end table for any room in your home. The wide table top is a great setting for lamps, magazine or your favorite knick-knacks. The crate is made from a sold MDF and offers sturdy long-lasting hinges. There are 2 options for the doors – the front (long end) of the table features 2 doors that swing out or the one door at the smaller end of the crate. This allows you to use the crate as an end table or even a sofa table or against a wall making it very versatile.
Gray Barn Haney-Jardine Lattice Dog Crate Table
One of the most affordable options with one of the best looks! Customers give this dog crate table great reviews for its design, spaciousness and durability. The lattice top sides give your pooch plenty of ability to get light and see what is going on around them – and when the door is closed no one will ever know it is not a regular end table!
Perfect for small to mid-sized dogs.
Internet’s Best Wood & Wire Dog Crate
Perfect option for a dog crate that looks like furniture as it fits into most home decors and is affordable! The espresso finish on MDF wood boards it accented with metal side panels. It has a modern look and offers 2 entry ways for your pet – a double door side or a single door front end. The top surface makes a perfect end table – or night table. Best for small or medium sized dogs. The pet bed is also included.
Luxury Dog Crate Furniture
As much as I would love to own one of these, it is so outside of our budget it is not even funny! But if you are one of the lucky folks who can afford one of these furniture inspired luxurious dog crates – they are so worth looking at.
These crates are mostly very customizable and can offer variations from single dog crates up to triple dog crates. There are wood, color and accent options for many of them as well. While these are more costly – we would imagine they will be longer lasting and because they are so beautiful you will want to have them around your home much longer than a standard mass produced dog crate furniture accent.
Most of these crates you can expect to spend $300 and up!

Buying Dog Crate Furniture
There are a few important things you should really know before you make your purchase and we are going to review those below.
Sizing: Finding the right sized dog crate furniture is the most critical part of this buying process! If you are buying a crate when your pooch is a pup, make sure you get a big enough one for them to grow into. Some dog crates have a divider that you can add and remove to allow your pup to have the space they need as they grow.
Typically a dog should have enough room to be able to turn comfortably a few times and spread out while laying for their comfort. Most of the crates here would really only be for smaller dogs and we do not recommend them for large dogs.
Aesthetic: Is your home modern? Victorian? Eclectic? Finding a dog crate that blends in with your furniture will be important! Make sure you look at the options for the crate you are considering to ensure it has options for colors and accents. If your home is Victorian inspired – then making sure there is a white option would probably be best as an example.
Quality: Be sure you review the materials of the crate! If you have a puppy or a chewer making sure your crate has hard woods or finishes that are hard to chew. Less expensive woods like MDF can be a nightmare if your dog is a chewer!
Reviews: For all of the crates we have listed here – we took the time to research the reviews and comments people were making around the web so you can rest assured any one of these are great options.
Note: The only real issue we found among some of the dog crate furniture options is that some dog owners felt their dogs disliked the darkness that these crates compared to their wire counterparts. Just something to keep in mind when choosing a crate!
But if you are looking at a different one – be sure to do your own due diligence. If you are buying a crate from Amazon DO NOT just look at the Amazon reviews – go to the manufacturer website – look at forums and do a search for the crate with the word “review” and see what you can find!
