Where to Put Litterbox?
I live in a studio and space is limited. I recently adopted a kitty from the pound and the litter box is in the bathroom. I don’t know where to put it because I almost trip over it whenever I walk into the bathroom.
I don’t want to put it in my bedroom because it smells. Any suggestions on where I can put it or what I can do to save space?

I understand how living in a small space presents its challenges, which is why I wrote the Decorating Small Rooms and Small Bathroom Decorating Ideas articles. However, there is a creative way around this dilemma. Believe it or not, you can purchase litter box furniture. These cat litter boxes are attractive and you can find them in a variety of finishes and models to match your existing furniture. Also, you have a choice of one door cabinets for small to medium size cats or two door cabinets for large or multiple cats.
The fabulous thing is that you can also customize your litter box furniture piece with hand carved, stained glass doors, a tile mosaic or turquoise inlay pattern. Another great feature is that these cabinets offer two entry/exit routes. This aids in helping keep the litter box odor free while giving your kitty a sense of security knowing that an escape route is accessible.
If you are concerned that your cat may injure itself while getting into and out of the litter box, then you may wish to consider getting matching pet stairs that you can position next to the entry/exit of the litter box. Urine and odors won’t penetrate the cabinet since the litter boxes are waterproofed and sealed inside and out.
Clean-up is simple because the front doors enable the litter pan to slide out and the cabinets contain a bag compartment where you can store your litter box scooper and other cleaning/odor repellent products.
A wooden ledge over the pan helps keep litter inside the pan after your kitty relieves himself/herself. Many of these litter boxes have a shelf for storing litter and accessories.
This litter box furniture is aesthetically pleasing and looks appropriate in almost any room.
Enjoy your new kitty! Be sure to check out our article on Dog and Cat Home Decor for more ideas.
