Our little furry friends. They’re comfortable living the simple life in cardboard boxes. But here are some unique and more comfortable bed ideas for your cats, including some ideas on how to make your own.
Upcycled and DIY Ideas
Upcycled computer monitors, just like the one in picture (1), and old TVs can be turned into elegant and retro cat beds. They also add to the decor in the room. Vintage suitcases (2) can also be upcycled into a fancy cat bed – or they can be bought pre made on Etsy. Double them up, to create cat bunk beds (3).
Another unique DIY idea is to create an enclosed cat teepee, just like the dip dyed one in picture (4). Have a look at the description in the pin to see how Casper made his.
If you have a small home and want to save on the floor space, then it would be best to hang your cat bed. One idea is to have a hanging cat bed – seen in picture (5). Or a sheet of fabric can easily be fitted under a chair (6), coffee table, or inside a large box to create a cat hammock bed.
Another way to save on floor space is to use wall mounted cat beds. A modern floating shelf, like the one seen in picture (7), not only makes for a cat bed, but as wall decor. Hang paintings and pictures around it. You just need to make sure there is a way for your cat to climb up to it. Or you can go a step further and have your own luxury cat apartment complex (8) by Catissa (you can get a 20% discount when you use the coupon “hometreeatlas”).
That awkward space under the stairs can have a custom built cat house. Check out my post here for ideas and pictures on using that space.
If all else fails, they’ll make their own sleeping arrangements…
