11. Adding storage under a staircase during a remodel is the perfect time to incorporate a hidden cat box area. That’s when this enclosure was added to the custom birch plywood drawer system in this basement in West Grove, Pennsylvania.Designer Pete Cooper of Spring Creek Design says he likes to look for unused nooks of space for cat enclosures. “Under the stairs is a great example of a small pocket of essentially unusable space that is just right for the cat. This particular box was built to take advantage of such a space,” he says. The front panel is removable for access and is secured with magnets.Cooper says he started integrating cat enclosures into basement finishing projects when cats — whose boxes are often relegated to the basement — were displaced. Other cat box projects he’s worked on have included electrical outlets for self-cleaning litter boxes and night lights “for scaredy-cats.”

The oversize mouse hole in this basement is in fact the perfect size for an old house cat who prefers to keep out of the action upstairs.
