Are your a cat lover? One thing you might not like is the litter box that comes along with indoor carts. Luckily, there are plenty of solutions to hide this unsightly pet accessory. By making a hidden litter box enclosure, you can prevent unwanted litter, odor, and mess around the house and give your cats a private place to do their business.
Hide Away Litter Box Cats With These 7 Tips
It came as no surprise when we discovered several original DIY litter box furniture ideas. We’re showcasing our favorite projects along with several tips to make the most of this cat space. Only the best for our feline friends, right?
1. Litter Box Inside the Big Basket
We agree with Hannah from All the Little Details when she says that litter boxes are an eyesore. When she started shopping for litter box enclosures, she didn’t like any of the results coming up, so she opted to convert a large wicker basket instead. She liked the wicker chest idea because the enclosure feels airy and light, and the top door makes every-other-day cleaning easy.
2. Litter Box Inside Cabinet
If you can find a cabinet with two doors and no drawers, you can make concealing a litter box a lot less cumbersome. Instead of needing to remove and convert any drawers, all you’ll need to do is add a cat door. You can hang the litter pan on the inside of the cabinet door and store other essentials on the top shelf.
3. Litter Box Under the Sink
If you don’t mind losing some storage space inside a bathroom vanity, then under the sink might be the perfect spot for a litter box. Instead of cutting into the vanity permanently, remove a door and add a curtain instead. Any litter that is kicked out of the box is contained inside the bathroom vanity and can be vacuumed up during the next clean-out. Read more about how Hannah made an under-the-sink solution to work for her.
4. Litter Box Cover
This cat tutorial from A Beautiful Mess isn’t just about function; it’s about aesthetics as well. The genius behind the idea wanted to upgrade the look of a basic litter enclosure and make it feel more like a cherished piece of home decor. Do you think they succeeded?

5. Paint a Pattern on a Basic Litter Box Cover
You can make a crafted box to cover it up. There are covers available that you could paint if you didn’t want to go through the trouble of making a box from scratch. You can paint whatever pattern you want for this cover box. As beauty as possible!
6. Litter Box Inside Drawer
Giving a piece of furniture a makeover is one thing, but giving it an entirely new function is another. When you’re searching for old furniture to repurpose for a cat cave, opt for pieces with a lot of interior space. This cabinet is more suitable by removing two drawers and adding a hinged door. The larger door makes cleaning the litter box a much easier process. Find out how she did it, and how to DIY it yourself.
7. Under End Table With Curtain
When attempting this project, make sure you pick an end table that can fit over the top of your existing litter box with ease. The more space you have, the less likely that litter is going to end up everywhere. Transform this end table using black spray paint and some striped fabric.
