Thanks for the comments all! I'll try to answer a few questions below:
Could this be adaptable? Yes, I've even seen something similar done with other pieces of furniture to use in other parts of the home. You can also buy different types of litter boxes and custom make a "cat home" adaptable to whatever litter box you have.
Doesn't it smell? No not really - but I also work from home and pretty much clean it out all the time. Kind of just a habit. The actual litter box is also pretty contained so that helps as well.
Doesn't your cat get on the countertops since the litter box is in the kitchen? Well first, my cat doesn't get on the countertops. She jumps up about everywhere else, but was taught as a kitten to NOT jump on the counters. Yes - cats ARE trainable. Second, even if the litter box was somewhere else... and if a cat did get on the counters... wouldn't she still get her germs on the counters? And shouldn't you clean your kitchen every time you cook anyways?? I know I do.... Anyways, kind of doesn't matter what pet you have or where they do their "business"... they will carry germs no matter what. Cat's are also extremely clean. My cat is bathing herself just about every time I see her.
Why in the KITCHEN? Well... I live in a 950 square foot 1940's house and it was the only possible location to put it. I also like having tile in the area because I can scrub the floors down with some 409:) Really, there is no ideal place for a litter box. And we also don't have a laundry room either, which is where we used to have it in our old house.
