If you don’t need to hide your litter box but you just want to contain the mess, this little wooden cabinet could really do the trick. You can still see the litter box, but it’s a classier place for your cat to do what it needs to do. Plus, the covering helps control the mess for kitties who tend to kick their litter.

If you’re more of the DIY kind of person, there are some other alternatives. One way to easily hide a litter box is by gluing fabric under a side table to create a curtain. The fabric is easy for your cat to go in and out of, and it looks so much nicer than the box just sitting out in the open. All you need is a table that’s large enough to fit a litter box underneath, the fabric of your choice, and some hot glue.

Spot the litter box in this photo. Stumped? Look at the little opening underneath the bench. There are tons of DIY tutorials on how to repurpose IKEA furniture as litter box cabinets, and this one does a great job. There are a bunch of different cabinets that could work and this particular tutorial uses one from the PAX collection. This project does require some power tools, but it’s definitely worth it to have such a stealthy litter box spot.
