Now that we have entered the 21st century, no request seems to be too exotic in the world of interior design. Bauer Interior Design specializes in more than just your run-of-the-mill interior renovations. With a style of her own, owner of Bauer Interior Design, Lou Ann Bauer, has 20 years of interior design work under her belt along with 12 years of experience running her own business.
Holding a B.A. in Fine Arts and a B.S. in Interior Design, Ms. Bauer was drawn to the art of interior design at a young age. Her flair for working in a three-dimensional art form manifests itself in the countless number of homes that display her signature designs. Ms. Bauer mingles her training in the arts with interior design to create a distinct and aesthetically appealing blend of home furnishing with environment.
In this day and age, household planning has become anything but routine. Aside from usual requests for home, bath, and kitchen renovations, Bauer Interior Design has had numerous requests from pet parents to incorporate animal associated features into their home designs. A popular feature, according to Ms. Bauer, comes from cat parents who are anxiously looking to live in style and comfort with their cat, without the distraction and nuisance of the albeit necessary, but unsightly, litter box. In her attempt to accommodate a kitty commode and still maintain a chic, upscale appearance, Ms. Bauer has created private, out of sight places in cabinets or under vanities that service cats’ needs and has constructed several outdoor access panels that make life for both cat and cat lover more convenient.
Another clever addition that is becoming a recurring request in the modern household is the pet cubby. Incorporated into a room’s design such as the kitchen, the cubby keeps pets out form under foot in a busy household. In the Bauer household, a kitty-feeding window ledge just above dog height is the answer to pet related problems.
Clients of Bauer Interior Design find their work to be both functional and fun. For more information on how you can update your household with some of the latest and most stylish designs, visit the Bauer Interior Design website at www.bauerdesign.com
