Integrating Your Kitchen Appliances Within Your CabinetrySeptember 22, 2021
When it comes to equipping your kitchen with appliances, stainless steel has been all the rage over the past few years. Its sleek and modern finish makes this material a staple in modern kitchens. But it’s not the only option when it comes to revamping your kitchen space.
Disguising Kitchen Appliances: An Old/New Trend
While not necessarily a new trend, one unique way to incorporate appliances into your kitchen is to disguise them and blend them in with the rest of the room’s cabinetry. From your fridge to your dishwasher, there’s little reason not to finish these appliances with the same material that you’re outfitting the rest of your cabinets with.
The trend of covering kitchen appliances with cabinetry material to look more like furniture pieces was popular back in the early 1990’s. Since then, stainless-steel appliances became the norm, making homeowners more comfortable with their appliances being on full display and even serving as focal points of their kitchens.
But the idea of covering appliances and integrating them into the kitchen has once again picked up.
Make Your Kitchen Look More Like an Extension of Your Living Space
By covering your appliances in panelling, you can easily streamline them to fit in your kitchen. Rather than have a massive appliance like your fridge stick out like a sore thumb thanks to its sheer size, you can help blend it in with the rest of your kitchen. Panels over top up your fridge can tone down its size and help it blend in well with the rest of the cabinetry.
With control panels over the door of your fridge or dishwasher, these appliances can easily disappear behind the cabinetry. While there are standard panels available for this purpose, you can also have your cabinetry custom-made to suit your style. This type of detailing can enhance the look and feel of your kitchen, as well as the rest of your home.
The ability to hide your appliances behind cabinetry and panelling can even help your kitchen look like an extension of your living space.
