Side Table or Cabinet
You could hack a side table or cabinet to hold a cat litter box inside. As long as you add ventilation, a way for your cat to access the box, and an easy way for you to clean the litter, you could easily find a place to put your side table or cabinet in a room. Nobody will know the cat litter box is there, except for you and your cat.
Put it in your entryway or your living room. Use a thrifted furniture piece and give it a makeover, or hack an inexpensive cabinet from IKEA.
If you’d prefer to buy instead of DIYing, try this nice-looking litter box cover and end table.
A cool-looking trunk can be a nice addition to a room. They’re also big enough to hold a cat litter box, plus the scooper, plastic bags, and more litter. It’s easy to just pop open the trunk and clean the litter. Your guests will admire your trunk without realizing that it’s hiding a cat litter box.
Maybe you already have a trunk that you could use for this or ask your parents or grandparents if they have one in the attic. Thrift stores and Craig’s List are good places to check. This steamer trunk turned cat litter box is perfectly rustic and this simple black trunk is just classy.
Putting a cat litter box in a bench is just as convenient as putting it in a trunk, but the added bonus of a bench is that you can use it as seating for yourself as well. However, your cat might love the bench too much to ever get off it! Add a cushion on top in your favorite fabric to make your bench truly a part of your home, not just a good place to hide the cat litter box.
A window bench is always nice and you could add a couple of cute pillows on top of a bench to fancy it up a bit.
Of course, you can always buy a ready-made bench that’s designed to hold a cat litter box. This bench comes in three colors: espresso, black, and white. Add a cushion on top and you’re done!
Shelving Unit or Bookcase
If you need more storage for your books and knickknacks, why not hit two birds with one stone and get a shelf or bookcase to both hold your books and your cat litter box?
Here’s another IKEA hack and a nice hack of a more traditional bookcase.
Hide your cat litter box behind a pretty fabric and simply push it aside to clean the box. You could hang the fabric around a simple side table and put it in the kitchen to gain some more counter space, or give the fabric treatment to a buffet table or console table.
Do you have a small closet that you could hide a cat litter box in? This little closet under the stairs is perfect for a kitty litter box with the addition of a cat door so the closet door can be kept closed. Another solution is putting a cat litter box under the bottom shelf of a linen closet and covering it up with a little curtain.
