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 – but for her we needed to make sure we added a chew proof dog bed as her anxiety makes her destructive when she is in the crate and we are out. Unfortunately, the crate we have – while we love it and recommend it, is plain ugly, black wire does not make for great decor.
So my quest to find wooden 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!

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.

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!
