Cat Houses that Double as Furniture - Space Saving Solutions


Having a big family like I do, managing the space in our home has been a number one priority when decorating. In fact, it's such a passion of mine (to maximize space) that I've created a Pinterest Board with several years of creative storage solution suggestions.

City apartments and homes can be pretty small these days. Depending upon which city you live in, it's not uncommon to have to settle for suites as small as 500 square feet. If you think the rent must be low for such an apartment in the city, think twice. The average rent for a small one-bedroom in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, is approximately $2145/month. 

Whether you're battling space or not, pet owners can manage square footage by implementing the use of a cat house that doubles as a useable piece of furniture.

Types of Furniture You'll Typically Find that Doubles as a Home for Kitty

  • End Tables
  • Ottomans
  • Benches
How You Can Include Cat House Furniture:

End Tables

The products featured offer various end-table designs. You can plan to use a cat end-table in bedrooms, playrooms, or even the house's main room. For those who live in tiny spaces, cat end tables are an ideal spot for a kitty's bed.

Ottomans

Try a kitty ottoman house if you're nervous about setting up a cat bed inside an end-table. They're so cute. They provide a place for kitty to sleep while also giving you a spot to raise your tired legs. These can be used anywhere; a bedroom, an enclosed porch, the main room, or the kid's playroom area.

Benches

A small seating bench can double as a place for a kitty to hide and sleep. The cat benches featured are not overly large, so they can easily be included in small entryways as a place that doubles as a kitty's house and a way to sit down to put on your shoes.

Of course, you can find a wide variety of cat houses; however, when square footage is an issue, check out furniture that doubles as a place for kitty to relax and sleep.

  1. I think the furniture that is made to accommodate both cats and humans is fabulous! As the grandmother of 3 grandkitties, I can affirm that kitties will use your open end tables as sleeping spots whether they were intended to be used for that or not. They also sleep under other furniture that provides a hidey-hole for them, again whether intended or not. One of my grandkitties is so intend on being "enclosed" when she sleeps, that she made a hole in my daughters bed mattress box spring to climb up into. They now have a flat wooden sheet of particle board under their box spring to keep her highness from doing that. Being creative with furniture when you have cats for pets is a necessity. These cat accommodating end tables are ingenious!

  2. Cats will repurpose your possessions, including your furniture, to suit their own needs. Providing them with ideal alternatives that YOU choose can spare your “good” furniture from being used as a scratching post, sleeping quarters, toy stash, etc. Some of the double-duty feline/human furniture solutions you have suggested are ingenious!

  3. I have seen these dog/cat houses and they are so nice to look at. Crates in the living room just don't do anything for me, but give me an end table dog house and I'm all over it. Great ideas here Barbara, now I have to check out your Pinterest Board. Thanks!
