Default Acceptable cage?

I hate the look of a wire cage and couldn't find a viv I liked, would something similar to this work? I really like like looks of the cage in the image but those are only sold in the uk so i was looking for an alternative.

Its gives 7,200cm squared floor space - depending who you ask and where you look this can be classed as too small.

To be perfectly honest, its not the best trying to add heating is going to be a nightmare! You need a che (ceramic heat emitter) which won't be easy to add.
You also need to add vents and a hole for the thermostat probe.

You then need to make it washable and waterproof! The best way is using sticky back plastic/fablon/vinyl. And you need some aquarium sealant to seal the edges (this is the same for if you had brought a viv though to be fair)

Also some people (who have used it before) have said it can be very awkward for cleaning, and getting the hedgehog out, although some say its not so I think it depends on the person and the hog but keep it in mind.

If your good with DIY then you could make something similar but with a better way to attach the che in there
