Ideas to Hide a Litter Box in a Bathroom

One of the only disadvantages of owning a cat is dealing with the litter box. A litter boxes smells and is unsightly, but in order to make it appealing to your kitty, you have to place it in an area the cat can easily reach, such as the bathroom. Keeping the box in the lavatory helps to keep odours contained to one room that usually has surfaces that are easy to clean. If you would prefer not to see your cat's rest room, there are ways in which to hide the box in your bathroom.

Potted Plants

Place large potted plants around the box, suggests the Pet Place website. Surrounding the unsightly box with plants creates a serene atmosphere and hides the litter pan. Choose plants and pots that are leafy and tall enough to cover the entire box. Your cat might actually prefer relieving itself in a private location, hidden by vegetation.

Furniture or Covers

Purchase furniture or covers that can hide the box. Decorative cabinets, boxes and pots are available that can hide the litter pan, states the Tails of the City website. Cats can easily go in and out of the box and some are even designed to catch litter. Place a cabinet or pot in your bathroom and you and your kitty are likely the only ones who will know there's actually a litter box inside.


Place the litter box in the shower. The shower is the perfect hideaway for a litter box. The walls of the shower or tub prevent the litter from covering your floor while hiding the pan. This idea is perfect for those who have an extra bathroom with a shower or bathtub. If you don't have a spare bathroom, you can still use this idea; you just need to remove the box and rinse the floor before taking a shower or bath.

Bathroom Closet

Hide the litter box in your bathroom closet. Your litter box will likely fit on the floor of the closet. You can either install a cat flap on the front of the door that will allow your kitty access to the box, or leave the closet door cracked a bit. Leaving the box in the closet contains the litter box scent, along with most of the litter.
