Wicker Cat Beds

Wicker cat beds are becoming very popular with cat owners, as not only do they provide somewhere comfortable for your cat to snooze, they also look great and provide some ‘shabby-chic’ style to your home.

There is a great selection of wicker cat beds available today, but if you are in a hurry then we have put together this easy to read table with some of our favourite beds.

Benefits of Wicker Cat Beds

Stylish appearance

One of the main advantages of wicker cat beds is that they look fantastic, adding rustic style and luxury to any room.

Most wicker cat beds are available in some sort of shade of natural brown, but the willow can also be treated to create different colours such as white, cream or grey.

Wicker cat beds are also available in a number of different styles, from simple and functional baskets, to cosy double-tiered beds and luxurious wicker sofas.

Environmentally friendly

Wicker cat beds not only look great, they also have a number of other benefits and one of these is that they are made from natural wood so they are environmentally friendly.

The best wicker cat beds will be hand made and constructed from quality willow, so although this means that there may be some slight colour variations in some products this is just a by-product of using natural material.

The sustainability of products is becoming more and more important, so it is worth checking that no harmful chemicals have been used in the production of your chosen bed or basket.

Strong and durable

Wicker cat beds are also very durable and long lasting, and a good quality bed or basket will be a feature of your home for many years. 

This is because willow is a naturally very strong wood (it is the wood used to make cricket bats), so it will be able to stand up to the rough and tumble of pet and family life.

Affordable

As wicker cat beds are usually handmade from natural materials, they are generally more expensive than some other cat beds which are available.

However, this does not mean you need a huge budget for a wicker cat bed, as one of our recommended options is the JVL Full Buff Small Wicker Basket which is generally available for around £15 or less.

You can pay up to £70 or more for a top of the range bed, and most other products are priced somewhere in-between.
