Cat Litter Box Furniture & Hidden Enclosures | PetSmart
I have this kitty-litter-enclosure box in my laundry room and love it. I have it placed so that the front the cat box has the opening on it. If you are looking at the cat box this way (opening of box facing toward you), the width of the furniture piece is 19 inches, and the depth (front to back) is 20.5 inches. The height is 25 inches. You can put the towel bar on either the left or the right side, or you can choose not to install the towel bar at all. If you install the towel bar on either the left or right side, it sticks out a little from the side of the box, so this makes the width of box about 19.5 inches. But again, you don't need to install the towel bar. Hope this helps! I recommend putting a glass cover the top of the box - keeps it looking nicer and helps to avoids stains (particularly because the cat box is white). I bought a glass cutting board at Bed, Bath and Beyond (12 inches x 15 inches) and put that on top of the box; it doesn't cover the entire top of the box, but I put my laundry detergent, etc., on the glass top - rather than directly touching the top of the cat box, and this has kept the kitty furniture looking nicer. Easy to remove the glass cutting board and wash it by itself. Hope this helps!
Of course, rather than cutting holes in your own laundry, bath, or other cabinets and enclosed stands, you can purchase special cat litter box furniture that uses that very same idea.

This is great for keeping the surrounding household clean and the house smelling fresh, but BAD for your cat’s lungs.
