Best cage/enclosure for keeping bedding and stuff inside? (Bonus points if modern)

Hey guys, looking to move two wittle piggies to my apartment. Our current cage, pretty standard Petsmart buy, sees them throwing bedding and other bits outside of it. I would really, really, *really* like to avoid this in my apartment. It's also very modern in design/decoration. Any suggestions for an enclosure that could both blend in with the decor and keep all the pieces inside?

Thanks!

Large cages are the best. Lots of people use fleece these days which means the bedding is not tossed out of the cage. I have seen some absolutely beautiful cages made with plexiglass sides which would, of course, keep hay and other things in place.

A great place to look for ideas is www.guineapigcages.com where there is a gallery of cage images.

When a product like plexiglass is used, since it blocks air flow, it is especially important to have a really big cage.

Plus, no pet store cage is really large enough for pigs. And if they're males, it's really not large enough.

Any suggestions on where to buy one? Don't have the bandwidth right now to make my own. I obviously came across the store from the link you posted:

Should I know of any others? Thanks!

Nope, that's the place to buy them -- you get the best materials, and the proceeds support the Guinea Pig Cages website as well as several others.
