Melrose Street, Newton MA

This new kitchen design was created to eliminate dog pens. An L-shaped design allowed for a dog den base cabinet to be incorporated into the kitchen layout.

Hi Ginger-

I am sorry to say I don't know; my contractor got the wire. I suggest you go look at your local hardware store and see what you like. This wire had a nice finish with no rough edges.

Good luck with your project.

Can’t sacrifice storage? Build a cozy cuddle zone for multiple pets by enclosing a space, as this homeowner did by fencing in a seldom-used breakfast nook.
