5. A Customised Kitchen Cupboard
If you have a storage space in your kitchen that houses all of your cat essentials, put the litter tray in there, too.

Slot a shelf in to split the cupboard in two, and pop a scoop and some bags on top to keep everything together.
6. Poopoopeedo Cat Litter Pod
Another stylish cat litter box for design-loving pussy parents. The contemporary egg-shaped design looks great in a modern interior and the circular entry allows cats in and out but keeps cat litter contained inside.

7. Wicker Basket Cat Litter Box
This option would work beautifully for the more rustic home. Place a blanket and a couple of cushions on top to make the space look a little cosier and a little less like your fur baby’s toilet!
