Create clean lines and calm in the kitchen with concealed elements that hide clutter from view
   EKBB Magazine  |  written on: 08-11-2021 17:45pm

There’s nothing like a clutter-free kitchen to create a calm environment for cooking and dining. But what if your preparation tends to be on the messy side and you’ve nowhere to hide the washing-up when guests arrive? The solution is to embrace the latest trend for concealed kitchens, which are perfect for small spaces as well as open-plan interiors.

Breakfast time  
+Stage is the latest innovation from German kitchen specialist Poggenpohl, designed to meet modern storage needs. The tall unit, which is available in the full range of finishes, can either be freestanding or built into a kitchen design. It comes with pocket doors to conceal the contents and each interior is tailored to meet your specific needs. It’s priced from £6,200.

Drinks station
Create a home bar with a combination of pocket doors and lift-up doors that conceal wine storage, a sink and shelving for glassware. The Metro design from Roundhouse is shown in high gloss Signal White RAL 9003 with base cabinets in Metallic Silver. Kitchens from £35,000.

Open and shut
Go for all-out concealment with the bulthaup b2 furniture range, which includes a walnut kitchen tool cabinet and matching appliance cabinet. Prices start from £5,000. Available from Kitchen Architecture.

Open ended
Modulnova’s Blade collection features a new bi-folding pocket door system in Matt White Fenix, a new technical laminate. The doors conceal a huge 2.5m workstation, which can be seamlessly closed away when not in use. Available from DesignSpaceLondon, kitchens start at £25,000.

All in order
The SieMatic MultiMatic Aluminium system makes interior storage extremely efficient and accommodates trays and frames with a host of accessories such as racks for bottles and wine glasses. It is also said to increase storage space by 30 per cent. Kitchens start from £30,000.

Timeless tradition
The Goodwood range from Teddy Edwards showcases painted, flat panelled doors with moulded rails and pewter handles. It also includes a merchant drawer unit with dresser top, which can be used as a small appliance ‘garage’ for food processor, mixer, blender, juicer, toaster and coffee machine. Kitchens from £45,000.
