Your bedroom (or another family member's) may work well. If bedroom isn't occupied around clock, many cats find this a preferable spot to have a cat litter box. If you consider a bedroom, think about kitty's bathroom habits. If she has a schedule that causes her to eliminate waste at 3 AM, will that wake you or other family members up? Will noise and/or odor interrupt your sleep?
If possible, a closet is a good location for your cat's litter box. Remember to keep door open for her to easily gain access. With confined space, constant litter box scooping is a must to keep odor to a minimum. Be certain you don't have any clothes items that hang down far enough to be affected by litter box or its contents.
Cat owners are resourceful at finding best locations for cat litter boxes in their homes. Almost any room will do, although many feline owners tell me they draw line at having a cat litter box in their kitchen. I can't blame them, except I have a cat litter box set up in a kitchen alcove in my home. However, it's far enough away from main kitchen that it's not a factor for kitchen hygiene. It's not my choice; cats made decision for me.
When bringing in a new cat, or when relocating to a new residence, work with your cat to determine best cat litter box location for both of you. Keep in mind with multiple cats, you'll need to set up more than one cat litter box for maximum use and efficiency.
This article only touches upon some of possible locations for a cat litter box location in your home. Look around, think like your cat, and I bet you'll find several locations that satisfies both you and your cat.
