DIY Climbing Wall Just for Cats

One of the best things about Catification is that it can be totally customized to fit any style. You can give your cats the indoor enrichment they need without worrying about how your home looks. In fact, with a little creativity, you can make something that’s totally unique and sure to be a conversation piece when guests visit.

Go for industrial chic with pipe décor

For this project, we used pipe décor, a style of home décor featuring black iron pipes and fittings, giving it an industrial-chic look. Pipe décor is generally used to make furniture like tables, shelves, lamps and more, but here we’re repurposing it to create a unique cat climbing wall.

The pipes and fittings are all interchangeable, allowing you to build almost anything you can imagine, kind of like an Erector Set. Iron pipe is available in various lengths, ranging from 1 inch to 72 inches long, and ½ inch, ¾ inch and 1 inch diameter. We used ½ inch diameter pipe and fittings for this project.
