The 11 Best Cat Tree Without Carpet You’ll Ever See

The best cat tree without carpet you'll ever see!

If you are looking for a cat tree without carpet your options have greatly expanded in the last few years.

Now-a days, you can find cat trees in all shapes and sizes, a taller cat tree, a short cat tree, condos made from pallet wood and more… They range from bare wood to those covered in an assortment of very sturdy fabrics or cushions.

This broadens your range of colors and patterns as well as making it easier to replace the coverings when they become worn out.

Now, lets get into some of our favorite cat trees. These definitely aren’t any old regular cat tree you’ll find down at big box pet store.

The Sapling V.2, Cat Tree with No Carpet

The Sapling is a cat tree without carpet from JML pets, with two platforms and one step for your cats to enjoy.

The Sapling 2.0 is one of the coolest, sturdiest and most unique cat trees without carpet I’ve seen in awhile. Made with solid wood, with pads on the platforms to provide snuggly comfort for your fur babies.

It’s made to last you years, just like you’d expect from any other piece of furniture. This is a piece meant to last, rather than be disposable a year from now once your cat has scratched it up.

Here a woman is sitting on the cat tree, showing how truly sturdy it is.

When I say it’s built to last, I mean it can handle a person sitting on it with no problem. If it can take that kind of weight, even a 20+ pound Maine Coon is no problem.

And it’s made with non-toxic materials, so no harm can come to your cat (or kids if, for some unknown reason, their toddler instincts tell them to climb and play on it). You can request a non-toxic stain of your choice if you don’t want it’s base color.

The Sapling is also made right here in the U.S.A, by a delightful “mom and pop” shop. So you can rest easy knowing that you are also supporting a small, local business and craftsmen when you order this wood cat tree.

Their shop here has all similarly well built, cat trees without carpet that you can see below (or visit their shop here for their full catalog!)


  • Large cat friendly
  • Non-toxic materials
  • Made in the U.S.A
  • Unique


  • No cat scratcher

The Sprout Cat Tower

The sprout cat tower is a space saving, minimalist cat tree perfect for apartments.  It's compact, yet cat friendly, modern design give it an edge that no other cat tree quite has.

If floor space is at a premium, but you still want something big enough for your cat to really enjoy ALL while looking stylish and minimalist… Look no further.  The Sprout cat tower is for you.  

This is a carpet-free cat tree with simple maintenance, a slim profile and enough vertical space for your cat to have fun without being absurdly tall.

A modern cat tree from Tuft + Paw, it’s covered in durable yet soft felt on the outside so your cat has something to scratch on and lay on.  But it doesn’t have that outdated look, or carpet shreds to fleck off onto your floor.

The Mau Store makes amazing, natural wood cat trees with soft puffs for your cats to slounge on or a basket on top for the best lounging experience a feline could hope for.

Kit-ty Tree Deluxe

The Kit-ty Deluxe is a one of a kind cat tree that I've only ever seen at this shop.  They are made from natural tree branches and silk leaves to give your their own little jungle to enjoy.

This is another handmade cat tree for you to take a gander at.  This is also a pretty large cat tree ready to support large cats and small ones.

With cozy perch after cozy perch, this cat tree DOES technically have some carpet on it but it’s far from a traditional cat tree.  The carpet is contained to the little perches which are easy to clean off, and surrounded by delightful silk leaves that give this cat tree the feeling of being a real tree.

The only real downside to this cat tree is the time it takes to get to you.  But, when you factor in that they make every single cat tree to order, and it’s a small mom and pop shop operation… Well, it’s understandable.


  • Unique, beautiful cat tree
  • Multi – level design
  • Large enough for multiple cats


  • Shipping time

Modern Cat Tree from the RealCatTreesStore

Another cat tree without carpet that is perfect for small apartments, especially if you only have on cat.  A central post covered in sisal and a big, cushy cat bed awaits on top.

This is an elegant cat tree without too many frills, and yet it has the whole package all while being space efficient.  Who knew such a simple cat tree could be everything you could need. 

If you are wanting scratching posts, this certainly has you covered.  The entire structural center pole is wrapped in manila rope making it the perfect scratching post for your cat.  And the top curved bed is the perfect cat condo.

And the creator of this delightful cat tree is always helpful and happy to help you customize (within reason, obviously) your cat tree so that it’s just that much more perfect for your cat.


  • Elegant design
  • Carpet-free cat tree
  • Easy to clean, removeable faux fur cushions


  • Not great for multi-cat homes (single perch)

The Grove

The Grove is a modern cat tree for those who want their cat trees... To not look like it's a cat tree.  A slotted circular design, with a bed on top and inside the almost side-tablelike cat tree make it a good place for your cat to peer out or hunker down.

The Grove is a cat tower from Tuft + Paw that is meant to add to your décor without looking like Just Another Cat Tree. 

Depending on your needs, this could be perfect for you and your cat.  It won’t detract from your house all while giving your cat a little space of their own.  Something that every cat needs, whether they are a kitten or an old timer.

If you are looking for something to give your cat a mild energy outlet, a place to lounge and a spot up away from the dog, this is for you.  If you have a cat that’s a little more high energy and needs a scratching post, I’d recommend some of the previous cat trees listed a bit more!

  • Amazing customer support
  • Cats and cat owners love it


  • No scratching posts
  • Little pricey

Pallet Wood Cat Tree

Who hasn't seen pallet wood projects make the DIY rounds in the last few years?  This is a pallet wood cat tree for the less crafty of us who want that look, but a little more polished and without getting our hands dirty.

This particular carpet-free cat tree uses old pallet wood to make a strong, sort of shabby chic piece of cat furniture for your feline friends to really get into and enjoy.

I can think if a cat owner or two (can you really own a cat?) that would love this.  It combines those really fun pallet wood projects with something your cat really needs, helps protect your furniture without detracting from your house!

This multi-level cat tree even has a cat condo attached, so your cat can have a little cubby all to themself.  At it’s tallest, it’s 170CM tall (66 inches, or 5 and a half feet tall), so even your daredevil kitties will have a spot to enjoy.

This is a low to the ground, senior friendly cat tree with no carpet to be seen.  Easy to clean, easy to use and set up.

This cat “tree” is perfect for those who want something a little more fancy than a cat bed, but not as large as an entire cat tree.  Instead, this is lifted off the floor with sturdy, solid wood legs and gives your cat a little condo to enjoy.

Made from wicker and solid wood, it’s stylish enough to compliment your décor and still be the perfect place for your cat to enjoy.

Another perk of this, is since it’s so low to the floor that if you have an older cat who can’t jump very high anymore, all they have to do is walk right into this.  Perfect for the senior in your life.
