While some Houzzers have outfitted entire homes and yards to accommodate their beloved cats, such measures may not be realistic for all. The good news: There are plenty of ways to make your home more comfortable and fun for your favorite feline without sacrificing style. Contemporary cat condos, wall-mounted trees, beds and even stylish litter box enclosures are available in the Houzz Products section.
The set of shelves of the Sophia Wall-Mounted Cat Tree not only acts as a cat tree, but one of the pieces also has room to keep books and kittyproof knickknacks, which helps the shelves blend in with the rest of the room. (If you’ll be displaying a plant, be sure to select one that’s safe for cats.) The other piece has an opening for your cat to climb through.
If your cat is the type who jumps onto the bed while you’re trying to change the sheets to get made up right in it, then he or she will love to snuggle up in the Microvelvet 17-inch Burrow Bed. It’s made for comfort with a waterproof base, supersoft microvelvet and stuffing.
The Microvelvet 18-inch Canopy Bed is filled with stuffing too and covered in a mix of microvelvet and cotton Sherpa.
“Stylish cat condo” is no longer an oxymoron. The Acacia Cat Tree is a kitty tree that will fit in with your decor and give your pets lots of climbing fun. It’s 3 feet high, giving your cats a perch for watching out the windows, and as an extra draw, it has removable Velcro scratching pads.
For those who prefer a wood finish to white, the Acacia Cat Tree also comes in rich bamboo.
If your tastes lean more toward Philip Johnson’s Glass House, this boxy, Jenga-like Sebastian Modern Cat Tree climbing tree is for you and your Mr. Whiskers. Made of engineered wood, it comes in black or white.
Ugh, the dreaded litter box can ruin an entire room’s style, but not with this smart Designer Catbox Litter Box Enclosure camouflaged as a piece of furniture. The litter pan, litter scoop and other accessories are completely hidden inside, and the lid lifts up for easy cleaning. The espresso-colored engineered wood piece is sturdy enough to serve as a bench.
Whether Snowy wants to sink her paws into a little climb or nestle in for a nap, this Kittypod Purrounge Chaise Lounge will suit her just fine. The strong corrugated cardboard adds hip texture.
If your baby prefers a crib-like place to sleep in, this raised Kittypod bed could be worth the splurge. Remember how much they like the feel of cardboard under body and paw. For extra comfort atop the industrial-strength corrugated cardboard, consider adding a Kittypod Shred (next).
You know the deal: Your cat has a favorite napping spot, perhaps on a chair with a light-colored seat cushion. Make your cat’s naps even better while saving your upholstery with this wool cat-size Kittypod Shred in Pink throw blanket. It also fits as a soft layer atop any of the Kittypod stands.
This Kittypod Geodome cat hideout combines geometry with a cat’s-head silhouette. It’s made of superior-grade durable recycled cardboard and outfitted with two doors and an interior scratch pad.
This Kittypod Geodome Sac will add softness to the bottom of your cat’s favorite lair, like the Kittypod Geodome above.
COMMENTARY: Now that's what I call loving your cat.
