Metal Bar Mice Housing
Liberta Riviera Portofino Mouse Cage
Liberta have been making cages for small animals for a long time. With neutral colors and basic design it will fit in with almost any home. This model comes with the cage, tray, platform, wheel, bowl, stairs and a house.
It does have metal bars though which is not ideal for mice. Over time the bars can corrode and the mice may try and chew on them. For current prices and more information you can look here.
Plastic Housing for Mice

A plastic home with top ventilation like this one is a recommended option. There are no bars for the mice to try and escape or chew on and you have good visibility. To check latest prices and more information click here.

Superpet & Cages Critter Trail X Small Animal Cage Set, 20”x 11.5” x 18”h
I couldn’t review the best mice homes without including a guilty pleasure. If you want to treat your pets and have a large play home take a look at the Superpet Trail. A combination of plastic boxes and tubes with a metal caged mid section.
Easy to clean and with lots to keep your mice interested, if you have space and don’t mine the color take a look here.
Glass Terrarium Housing
Ferplast Ratatout 80 Mouse Cage
The downside is that they are heavy, this makes cleaning out and moving it around a little more difficult.
