How to hide your kitchen appliances in style
Renovating your kitchen? Here are some tips on how to save space and preserve the appearance of your room.
If you’re passionate about home cooking, you probably have a large array of new appliances and gadgets to integrate into your kitchen during a renovation.
Even in a spacious kitchen, there’s an art to being able to fit in a rangehood, an oven, a dishwasher, warming drawer, cooktop and fridge, as well as all your coffee machines, microwaves and smaller tabletop appliances – all while avoiding being overwhelmed by a sea of technology.
These decisions are part of the fun of improving your home. But they can also be daunting, and you may wish that there was some kind of magic wand you could wave to make everything integrate seamlessly.
Turns out, there are a few. Here are our top tips for saving space and hiding your appliances in your kitchen:
Fully integrated appliances have an appliance panel which is a bespoke cabinetry that’s installed over your appliance door to give the impression that they’re just part of the cabinetry. The panel is fixed to your appliance door and opens in tandem to reveal the inner workings, without crowding your kitchen.
At NEFF, we offer fully integrated dishwashers for the ultimate seamless look.
Whoever’s managing your renovation will be able to recommend materials and surfaces that would best work for your hidden appliance design. Many people choose to go with subtle panelling that matches the surrounding materials. You’ll be surprised at what a difference it makes to the aesthetic and minimalist feel.
Choose integrated rangehoods
Rangehoods are an essential addition to your kitchen, but they can also be cumbersome. While a wall-mounted rangehood will do the job of extracting smells and steam from your cooking experience, you might want to opt for an integrated or slide-out design.
These sleek stainless steel rangehoods take up less space and are professionally installed to fit in with your kitchen design.
Consider a built-in microwave
Tabletop microwaves can be bulky, and often take up valuable space on your counters or cupboards that could be put towards décor or other small appliances. Why not consider making room for your family, and opting for a built-in NEFF microwave that integrates seamlessly into your cabinets?
Alternatively, you could purchase a full NEFF oven with microwave functionality. This halves the space needed to house your major appliances, and gives you more options for cooking every day.
