Everything In This Slideshow

  • In Plain Sight

    There's plenty of work to be done in this corner alcove, where small appliances await in a niche tucked between the range and a stacked wall oven and warming drawer.

  • Custom Cabinet

    A three-level cabinet has spaces just the right height for a mixer, microwave oven, and other small appliances. Retracting doors clear the countertop when appliances are in use.

  • Convenient Carousel

    Knobs, sliders, and hinges on this steel carousel squeeze multiple small appliances into a compact space while permitting easy access.

  • Appliance Outlet

    An outlet inside an appliance garage puts power where you need it. Keeping the appliances behind closed doors makes concealing them quick and easy.

  • Cut the Clutter

    The clean lines of this cabinetry and its hardware suggest a kitchen where every piece of equipment is tidy and organized. Hinged doors keep it that way.

  • Undercounter Convenience

    Hidden but handy, this island's drop-down toaster compartment is also easier to use by children or anyone in a wheelchair.

  • Slide-Out Storage

    Vertical slide-out cabinets put appliances within easy reach while maximizing existing storage space.

  • Tucked-Away Toaster

    Create convenient stations for appliances that are used infrequently. This toaster tucks away for quick storage and easy pull-out.

  • A More Manageable Microwave

    Here, a microwave stored inside of a cabinet is still convenient and easier on your back than an undercounter placement. Blackboard paint on the inside of the door makes it easy to leave messages and reminders.
