DIY Hidden Cat Litter Furniture for Multiple Cats

We just built a home with a great mudroom space. But it was cluttered up with cat boxes, bags of litter and other feline accoutrements. When we finally got around to designing things in there, we decided to use the SEKTION cabinets, but instead of storage, they turned into a multi-cat comfort station (cat box haven).

What you’ll need to make this hidden cat litter station

  • 3 SEKTION Base cabinet frames,
  • 3 MAXIMERA low drawers
  • GRIMSLOV cabinet doors

A doorway was cut in the wall which leads into the cabinets and then along a long walkway through the cabinets. Each cabinet has a doorway cut through to the next cabinet and each cabinet has a low drawer on which the cat boxes sit, along with a motion sensor activated nightlight.

In the end cabinet there is a large exhaust fan that pulls all the stinky outside, also activated by the motion sensor. We can access all the cat boxes for cleaning through the cabinet doors and do not have to bend down much to lift them. The doors on the ends had to be mounted to the drawer faces to pull out due to our being unable to use 153 degree hinges. The doors in the middle swing outward. The end unit is used for storing cat food and litter but could be used for more cat boxes if the need arises.

    This is the Cadillac of kitty litter stations. Where does the fan take the fumes & stink to?

    Also that area right by the entrance to the kitty litter restrooms, is begging for more kitty spoiling. You already have it started with the steps to the doorway to the spoiled kitty restroom. All you need now are some more little shelves from Ikea mounted on those two little walls, right by the kitty doorway. Then kitty can climb up high and swat some hair as you come in through the mud room or just sit up high and check things out while waiting for you to get home. Excellent hack.

    Can you come to my apartment and build one for me? This is fantastic! Love our cats, hate their ‘by-products’…

    Spoiled is the whole bunch of you. However, this is very well thought.
