What Houzz contributors are saying:
Underneath it has a little Tom and Jerry style going on — a big mouse door leads to a litter box underneath the bench. The top of the bench lifts up for easy access to the litter box.
Under a Bench 13. Designer Tami Holsten of Bear Trap Design got super creative when custom-building this litter box hidden in a bench in a laundry room in West St. Paul, Minnesota (this photo and next).“The space is limited so I needed to be creative and find the ultimate litter box hideaway for their two cats, Bud and Stella,” Holsten says. The bench seat lifts for easy access to the box, which the cats enjoy for its privacy, she says.As a surprise for her clients, Holsten took the bench’s front panel with the mouse hole cutout to a local artist, who illustrated it with a mouse zooming on an orange motorcycle, with the exhaust spelling out the name of one of the homeowners, who drives a motorcycle, loves the color orange and is “king of the laundry room,” Holsten says.
