Why use cat litter box furniture ?
It’s pretty simple. When Brittany was trying to convince me to accept a cat in our house, I was really hesitant and one of my main argument “against it” was the ugly litter box that would smell and most of all not match our apartment style. Well as you can guess, this argument did not stand very long 🙂
I’m lucky enough to be a “handy-man”. One of the first things I did when Yoda arrived in our home was to create a very special cat litter box furniture. Little did I know that other options were already available online ! You can really find what you want out there : big or small, original or simple… What is clear is that there is what you need to hide this ugly litter box and make a comfy space for your cat. Check out our reviews!

Good Pet Stuff Hidden Litter Box
One of the most affordable cat litter box furniture you can find that has such a cool design. It does the job of hiding the litter box and provides enough space for your cat to do his thing 🙂 The material is really strong (polypropylene) and easy to clean. It doesn’t look too “plastic-y” as it actually imitates clay. It makes it very convenient to integrate into your home decor! It is a reliable product that you will be able to use for a very long time: it has been tested by demanding customers / cat lovers who used it for several years and were fully satisfied with its design, durability and odor control. You will find great reviews on Amazon, so do not hesitate to check it out and make your own opinion.
Why we like it: fun design, strong, suitable for any cat (15lbs), easy to clean, affordable, no odor.
What could be improved: Not much really. Even if you are not an adept of fake plants like us, it really makes a difference compared to the ugly plastic box. Maybe we’ll work on our own new product for you guys!
Merry Products Cat Washroom Bench, White
A very flexible product that fits any type of litter box. You can fit a big automatic litter box or a smaller box and the litter itself or even other accessories. The removable partition makes it super flexible and creates so much space that you can fit almost anything that is related to your cat( scooper, litter, toys…).
It also remarkably traps the odors inside. What is also very convenient is that you can set the entrance right or left depending on your needs and the room configuration.
Now for the visual part, the design is simple and efficient which basically makes it super easy to integrate into any room. You can add plants or flowers on top or basically anything you want.
Why we like it : very flexible, spacious, good design
What could be improved: It is not waterproof (so if your cat misses a lot, it’s better to get a covered litter box (it fits in there so no worries). They call it a bench but you cannot really sit on it, it’s more about the visual aspect.
Merry Pet Cat Washroom / Night Stand Pet House
It’s another good product but not for every cat and you should be aware of the following:
You can use this item in many different ways : as a coffee table, a night stand, you can even integrate it easily into your bathroom. The look is really great and integrates perfectly in most houses / apartments. To keep it looking nice, we recommend using a high wall / covered litter box. In addition to that, lots of customers used shelf liner at the bottom to prevent any damage that your cat could cause if he misses. It’s a shame but this is not waterproof. You just need to keep that in mind and your unit will be just fine.
It fits smaller litter boxes (18.5 x 16″) than the bench so you need to make sure you have the right size ! We recommend this item mostly for smaller cats because you want your cat to have enough space to feel comfortable and to actually use it. We insist that you check the dimensions : just check out customers pictures posted on Amazon and you will see how it looks in context 🙂 Lots of customers think it’s smaller than it looks.
Other than that, it does the job of hiding the ugly litter box and it is pretty easy to assemble. It has a towel rack on either side (you choose where you want it) that’s really convenient. As for the odors, there is really no problem if you clean it regularly!
Why we like it: Neat design, one of the best options to integrate into your home decor.
What could be improved : Same as it’s big brother, not waterproof. Could be a bit bigger, too !
Pet Studio MDF Litter Box Cat Cabinet, Mahogany
A very classy solution to hide the litter box ! This one as plenty of space both for your cat and for his/her accessories. The extra drawer is convenient as you can use it for all your cat accessories. The mahogany color is very nice and makes it easy to integrate into your house.
However, like it’s competitors from Merry Pet, this furniture is not waterproof and highly fragile to cat pee. Luckily, advised customers found a way to prevent this from happening by using a high wall / covered litter box. In addition to that, be sure to use some liner under the box to cover the bottom of the furniture. By doing so, you will keep your furniture for a very long time. We are still wondering why they do not integrate the liner as part of the original furniture…
Why we like it : classy design, double doors for easy access
What could be improved : needs to be waterproof !
Age Pet Loo Litter Box Cover and End Table (Espresso)
If we prefer the Merry pet washroom for its design, this one is of better quality. The design is simpler but still very nice with a very attractive color. It also gives your cat more space inside ! It’s still not completely waterproof so you do need to be careful if you think your cat can miss! If he/she misses a little it’s fine but if he/she misses a lot, some customers have complained that it could absorb cat pee and smell afterwards. As for the other furniture in this category, make sure to use a high wall litter box and we would even cover the bottom with liner, just to make sure.
Overall, the material used is better quality than it’s competitors: it is ecoflex, eco-friendly and is made up of a durable composite material. It’s also easy to assemble!
Why we like it: stylish, better quality material, good ventilation
What could be improved: other colors would be nice, waterproof?
For additional options, check out the Out of Sight Litter Box by our friend Paul. His product is made in the USA with top quality materials. This litter cabinet hides the litter pan, like all others but it also prevents litter tracking by having the litter box up on a second shelf, so when the cat hops down, the paws open naturally and the litter falls out. This litter box ships out knock-down-flat (KDF), and assembly is easy with step-by-step photo instructions. See his website for more details.
