Minimalism is on the rise. It is increasingly important to have a kitchen that feels clean, streamlined and uncluttered. Bearing this in mind, it makes much sense that there is now a new trend for hidden kitchens which you can simply slide out of view once you’ve finished using it.
This new trend works especially well with smaller kitchens, or spaces that combine kitchens with different rooms like dining/bedrooms.
Sliding track doors are perhaps the best cover-all solution. In one smooth movement they hide the whole kitchen area.
Double doors are also being employed in many hidden kitchens. Whilst aesthetically pleasing, they also provide more drama to the big reveal.
For the more technological of us, there are even electronic panels available that will do all the heavy lifting for you.
If you’re prone to a little too much unthinking snacking, having the kitchen tucked away might even help you to curb the consumption. The old adage ‘out of sight, out of mind’ has already been proven to be true by a number of dieticians.
The great part of these hidden kitchens are that you can leave them visible for as long as you like, and then hide them away when you need extra space: when hosting parties, to keeping dangerous kitchenware away from kids or just to give yourself some breathing space.Also read:Four top tips for a blissfully organised kitchenNEXT!
