Indoor Homemade Bunny Enclosures by Live Sweet

Bunnies are definitely a favorite at our house, and I have had so many over the years. I love finding new enclosures for my bunnies and decorating the bunny enclosure in adorable pastels. Ever since I was young, I’ve enjoyed raising bunnies, and it’s been such a special thing to share with the kids. It warms my heart to see Libby’s love for animals, especially the bunnies! Providing a good cage environment is something that comes along with being a bunny owner, so today I want to share some of the essentials in putting together a bunny enclosure, as well as ways that you can be creative with the process!

We have tried all different kinds of bunny cages and enclosures over the years, and this one we have now is by far our favorite. This is made from a bed frame we enclosed to create a cage. My husband then added shelving and ramps so the bunnies could go up and down as they please. This has been amazing, we put down new laminated flooring that way it is easier to clean up after the bunnies! This bunny cage has been amazing for when we bring new babies into the house. It has the perfect amount of room for them to play around in.

We purchased a hay feeder, litter box, food, and water holder. With indoor rabbit enclosures, it’s important to have a litter box. We litter train all of our indoor bunnies because it makes clean up so much easier! We have a water bottle for some of our bunnies, but not all of them. Bunnies like to lounge so we decided to buy them a hammock.

Bunnies like to have somewhere to hide, as they would in nature. This is why we have included another bunny tower. We wanted them to have something they can go in to feel safe and protected. Our bunnies love the levels! It’s fun for them to be able to go up the ramps, it gives them extra room to play around. We also let them out for supervised playtime, so either when I’m working up in my office, or Libby wants to spend some time with them, we let them out so they can have exercise and time out of their enclose. Make sure they have that opportunity for playtime to hop around.

I have been searching on Pinterest for years, finding inspiration to create the best indoor bunny enclosures. I have included of some of my favorite ideas and tips for building your own, as well as some particularly impressive enclosures we can marvel at! There are so many different way to build them, whether you’re starting from scratch or using existing cages and enclosures and revamping them. I hope this inspires you to create a fun little home your bunnies love!

Indoor Bunny Hutch Inspiration

I love this bunny hutch tour from PoleenYoga! It’s similar to ours in structure, and she makes the cutest little teepees for the bunnies to snuggle in!

One of my favorite hutches I found for inspiration is from One Day At A Time. She turns a piece of antique furniture into a rabbit hutch, and it turned out great!

Here is a similar idea from Everything About Rabbit Hutches. This dresser has tile down for easy cleanup and doors that open with wire caging. So cute and functional!

One option for a bunny environment is just to enclose an area on the floor. This one from Langohrwelt has areas for the bunnies to hide and climb, so it has the necessitates, and even more space for them to run around!
