kitty litters for small spaces – the hidden litter box roundup

hidden litter box

Kitties are the best.  Kitty litters are the worst.  But fortunately, lots of great hidden litter boxes have hit the market in the past few years.  Some are actually affordable and some are what I would consider aspirational 😉 Here are some of my finds. And if you’re interested in making your own hideaway litter box, check out this Kitty Hack post.

Way Basics Eco Friendly Cat Litter Box

And this photo shows what’s going on behind the scenes:

The Way Basics Eco Friendly Cat Litter Box is currently listed under $100 and comes with a lifetime warranty. It’s made from zBoard, a patented sustainable material that the manufacturer is billing as a better, eco-friendly, non-toxic alternative to particle board and MDF. Interesting.  At time of this post, the list price is $89.99.

Philociety solid wood litter box

Sweet and simple. Besides looking good and having a minimal footprint, this hidden litter box from Philociety seems like it’s made to last.  It’s constructed from thick solid natural wood. The manufacturer says the wood is treated with an odor and moisture resistant paint inside and out to minimize traditional litter box smell.  And where does the cat enter to use the litter? There is a side opening, as shown in this product photo.

Made by a husband and wife team in Estonia, this hidden litter box side table is constructed from humidity-proof birch plywood and finished with high-quality oil wax. This option is a bit pricier than the other roundup items, but I love that it’s made by a small independent business with adorable Facebook pics like this one:)

This photo cracks me up! The cat in this photo looks like he’s not quite finished with the restroom… Anyhow, the current list price on Amazon is $108.99, which is steep for a litter box but not so bad if you think of it as a side table with a hidden bonus feature 😉

And lastly, for those with a more generous budget, there is the Modular Cabinet Set from Modernist Cat.

This stylish hidden litter box was inspired by the design and function of classic mid 20th century storage credenzas. The entrance shape (rectangle or circle) and side (left or right) are customizable as are the door colors.

  1. My daddy hooman has a friend who used an old entertainment center and cute the end of it, put a door for us and at the other end was his cats litter box. It was cool. This blog post reminded me of that. (Lilly Bug, Calico Blogging Cat from 2 Cats and a Blog).

    1. love that idea! i’m surprised there aren’t even more hidden kitty litter offerings out on the market, but the diy options are endless!
