Finding good spots for litter boxes in your home can be a challenge, especially if you live in a small space or your home has multiple cats. One good solution to the problem is cat litter box furniture. These cleverly designed enclosures look like traditional furniture, such as nightstands, side tables, and entry benches, but conceal your cat’s litter box inside. Imagine being able to site a litter pan just about anywhere that’s convenient—without having it sticking out like a sore thumb.

There are a growing number of options for cat litter box furniture and enclosures, from lightweight, easy-to-move enclosures for households-on-the-go to solid benches and credenzas. Some come with their own litter boxes while others house a litter box that you select. (See a list of our favorite boxes here.) Your living space and your kitty’s litter box habits will help determine what kind of piece would work best. The good news is most of them are sturdy and easily washable.

If your cat sprays or sometimes goes outside the box, check to make sure that the cabinet you choose has interior materials that won’t absorb urine. And if your cat likes to kick litter, pick an enclosure roomy enough for a litter box with high walls or lids.

Don’t expect litter box furniture to carry the same loads as other furniture in your home. Even pieces marketed as benches or nightstands are generally not made to withstand the weight of heavy items like TVs—or people. And keep in mind that they’ll be housing active animals, so think twice about what you put on top of that cute cabinet. Books are great, vases—not so much.
