THE PROJECT: Convert a cramped “laundry hall” into a more beautiful, functional space.

THE ONE WISH: Incorporate a tucked-away litter box for the family’s two cats, to get it off the floor and out of sight, and prevent litter from being tracked throughout the house.

THE SOLUTION: Design and install a cabinet around the litter box to hide it, with custom “cat door” access. The cabinet’s front doors hide the box (but pop open for easy cleaning), while a hinged trapdoor on the cabinet’s side allows the cats to roam in and out.

THE RESULT: Blogging about the project, Henderson put it best: “This is the cat commode of my dreams. There’s still sand in the cabinet that’ll need to get cleaned often, but SO much less mess on the floor.”

BONUS: A completely enclosed box helps contain litter odors and mess, too.
