For this crazy cat lady, there aren’t many downsides to having a cat but the litter box is definitely one. Of course, you need a litter box but they’re ugly, they stink and take up space that is often at a premium. Cat litter box furniture to the rescue! There are many different kinds of cat furniture like scratching posts and cat houses that are fun for both human and cat.
But, we’re not talking about fun now. This is serious. Cat litter box furniture is a necessity once you see how easy, useful, cost effective and stylish it is. What kinds of useful furniture can be made into litter box furniture? Let’s find out…
Litter Box Night Stands
I’m not saying that you want the litter box next to your bed but if you live in a studio apartment, you might not have a choice. This Petsfit Double-Decker Litter Box Enclosure Night Stand is a great option. It doesn’t have to be used as a night stand either. It could be put in the bathroom or entry hall too.
Reviews: This cat litter box night stand scores 4.4 out of 5 stars on Amazon. The main negative thing about this cat litter box furniture is that some cats don’t use it. Or at least they don’t take to it right away. This speaks more to the stubbornness of cats rather than the product itself.
Notable features: This item doubles as a cat house. The double-decker system allows litter to fall from your cat’s paws before exiting. This drastically reduces the amount of litter that will be tracked onto your nice, clean floors.
Litter Box Side Tables
Another way to hide a cat litter box is a side table. Check out this cat furniture side table from Designer Catbox. Your cat will do their business out of sight and the side table can hold your remote, drink and snack (or anything else you want).
Reviews: People seem to either love or hate this item. It has 3.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon. Most complaints relate to the quality of the hinge and backing. Others report no issues at all. It can be annoying to take everything off the top when you are cleaning it so you may want to keep the top relatively clear.
Notable Features: Large cats have no trouble using this litter box furniture and the two panels help litter fall from kitty cat’s paws before leaving. Less litter for you to clean up or step on with bare feet. That’s a win!
Litter Box Benches
Need a place to sit while you put on your shoes? Why not combine a bench with a litter box? This litter box bench from Merry Products does just that.
Reviews: This litter box cat furniture is well reviewed on Amazon with 4.3 out of 5 stars. People like how big it is, the look of it and how sturdy it is.
Notable Features: The interior separation can be removed and the interior is quite large with lots of head room. The entry/exit door can be placed on either side. This litter box bench has enough room inside to accommodate a large automatic litter box (if you’re lucky enough to have one of those). Since the litter box enclosure opens from the side, you can feel free to place as many items on top as you want.
One downside that I can see is that there’s no secondary area where the litter will fall off the cat’s paws. They go from litter box right to the exit and my clean floors. This can be addressed by removing the separating panel and moving the litter box as far from the exit as possible. But, then you lose the storage.
Litter Box Cabinets
For something that will simply contain the litter box and provide a little storage while looking great, try the Refined Feline Refined Litter Box.
Price: $192.73 or Large, $255.13 for X-Large
Reviews: 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon – people like this product. It is a little tricky to assemble but once assembled, people are generally very happy with it. It’s the most expensive on our list here but based on the reviews, it is the most like a ‘real’ piece of furniture.
Notable Features: This litter box cabinet comes in large or extra large. It has a storage drawer and an optional mat to catch litter before it ends up on the floor. It also has air filters built right in.
Creatively Hidden Litter Boxes
Now that we have covered the basics of litter box furniture, there are other ways to hide a litter box – other than in a cabinet or a piece of actual furniture. Have you ever thought that a litter box could be concealed in a plant pot? I hadn’t until I saw the Hidden Litter Box from Good Pet Stuff. Who will ever know?
Reviews: This dual purpose plant pot gets 4.4 out of 5 stars on Amazon. It hides the litter nicely. You will want to replace the fake plant with your own though. This should only cost a few bucks but will look nicer than the one that’s included.
Notable Features: This hidden litter box is simple which makes it easy to assemble. It’s designed for large cats and for multi cat homes. If your cat is easy going, you can turn the entrance to face the wall and even you will forget that this is a litter box.
