    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.
