How To Hide Appliances
If you’ve ever picked up a home magazine you’ll notice that the kitchen counters are usually clutter free. That means the stylist has either moved/taken away the microwave, coffee maker, toaster etc, or, the interior designer has created hidden little homes for these everyday appliances.
Our bet is both, but since we don’t live everyday life in magazines we’ve put together a helpful list on how to hide your kitchen appliances!
Clean countertops here we come!
Purchase a countertop microwave and place it in a pantry that has an outlet inside. Don’t have an outlet, that’s an easy fix, just call your electrician!
An alternative to the pantry is finding a cabinet that has room for the microwave and again, install an outlet inside.
If hiding appliances is important to you we LOVE built in microwave drawers that go in your base cabinetry.
Refrigerator, Freezer, Ice Maker
A panel-ready refrigerator or freezer that has custom panel fronts made to match the rest of the cabinetry.
A countertop depth refrigerator or freezer that doesn’t stick out past your countertop.
Coffee Maker, Toaster, Blender
Inside a cabinet that has outlets inside, different door types:
-Lift-up front door
-Standard swing cabinet door
-Bi-fold cabinet doors
Tall full-height cabinets are a great solution to house multiple appliances
Inside a base cabinet with a heavy-duty lift mechanism
Inside a base cabinet that you manually get out
On your countertop if it’s not surround by a lot of clutter
We hope these ideas help you in creating a more peaceful kitchen with your appliances hidden yet accessible!
