10 creative DIY ways to hide the cat litter
Hello my friends! I had such a great response to our cat litter solution a few weeks ago, I figured I’d round up a few more fun ideas for hiding the litter while still making kitty feel comfortable.
These are all DIY ideas, but I share some store bought products that look great at the end of the post too.
If you missed what we did, you can find our kitty litter closet reveal and the tutorial for installing a cat door here:
This is a large closet and with the addition of the shelves I installed at the end of the closet, we still have tons of storage space:
Our vacuum and some other items are on the right side as well.
This has worked out SO well for us and the cats seem to love it! It’s been so easy to keep the mud room clean now too. Cat litter seems to track everywhere but most of it stays in the closet.
I know not everyone has a cleaning closet they can use for the litter so I gathered some other ideas as well. Most of these DIY cat litter solutions hardly take up any space and look GREAT! Click the link under each photo to get to the tutorial.
Danae used a pretty IKEA cabinet to hide the litter and all of the accessories:
Love this! When it’s closed you’d have no idea what’s hiding inside.
Jennifer used a side table to create this adorable cat “cave” for their kitty!:
I like that you could personalize this with a fun paint color or fabric. We did something similar under our old folding table in the laundry and the cats did great going through the “curtains.”

Amanda took a thrifted cabinet and turned it into a spot to hide the cat litter:
What a gorgeous kitty! Other than the cut out on the side, no one would ever know this is hiding cat litter.
I saw this idea online and though it was so smart! I love how they used the small space under the sink to hide the cat litter:
There’s not a ton of room for much down there anyway, so why not make it more functional?
Zoe created a rustic cat litter box that would be a perfect bench for a mud room:
I like that the lid lifts up so it’s easy to clean.
Scott transformed this old kitchen island into a beautiful decorative cabinet that also hides the litter:
He shares full plans to make your own! So many of us have a cabinet that could be changed up pretty easily to accommodate the litter.
Do you have a dog that you want to keep out of the cat litter? This option is a great solution because the top entry keeps the dogs out:
I like that this looks like a regular cabinet from the front!
This fun cat condo was made by repurposing two end tables:
The cat litter is at the bottom and there’s storage on top. This pretty piece fits right into the decor!
And finally, one of my favorites — this whole set up is like the penthouse of cat litter solutions. I love every bit of it!:
You have to see all of the details, including motion activated exhaust fans! SO cool. The steps and door are super cute too.
So many great ideas that marry both form and function. I have found our cats love having a private spot to do their business — just as we do! 😄 Of course, if you don’t want to DIY this, there are tons of ready-made options as well. The planter idea linked below is brilliant!
Buy these options ready-made:
Modern white and wood table
White farmhouse style litter cabinet with storage
