Decor Tips for Hiding Litter Boxes

One of the best things about cats is the fact that they are so clean. Fluffy will discretely do her business in her own private bathroom, so there’s no need to walk her or scoop her waste from the yard. When it comes to home décor, however, a litter box isn’t a very attractive addition to your home. In this article, a Livonia, MI veterinarian offers some great tips for camouflaging Fluffy’s litter box so that it adds to your décor, rather than detracts from it.


You can now order litter boxes that double as planters for large real or fake plants. This is likely one of the most ingenious recent inventions in pet care we’ve seen! The hole can be moved towards a corner to hide the planter’s true purpose and give Fluffy some privacy. These litter boxes may be a bit on the pricey side, but they’re much prettier than a plain plastic bin.


Several retailers now make furniture designed specifically to hide litter boxes. Check online: you might be amazed at how many attractive options there are! You can also go the DIY route and repurpose an end table, small desk, chair, wicker chest, or coffee table into a cute and inconspicuous kitty bathroom. You can also hang little curtains from an end table, or drape an attractive material over a doggy crate and put the box inside the crate.

Folding Screens

Another way to disguise your furball’s litter box is to hide it behind a folding screen. Look online for colors and patterns that suit your taste and décor. We recommend putting plastic sheets on the back side to protect it.

Plastic Bins

You can repurpose a large plastic tote into a pretty kitty litter box with a little elbow grease and creativity. First, cut a hole in the side for a door, and smooth down the edges. Next, cover the lid and sides with a material of your choice. You can use carpet, cloth, fleece, fake grass, or contact paper. You can also paint it. To make it really pretty, add a few decorative stickers, paint designs on it, or use stencils to transfer intricate patterns.
