Re-designing your kitchen space can be one of the most exciting times in a home renovation. We spend so much times in our kitchens that it is important that the space be inviting, warm and a place where we want to spend time with family and friends. But with so many decisions to make on countertops, flooring, backsplash and appliances a kitchen re-design can be stressful. What if you could make use of extra kitchen space hidden away somewhere?
Today’s trends in design call for a minimalistic approach, letting countertops speak for themselves without the added clutter of appliances. As an added bonus hidden kitchen appliances also free up counter space, perfect for smaller homes and apartments.
Our favorite way to cut down on clutter? Tucking away our Microwave DrawerTM underneath a kitchen island or countertop. This frees up precious counter space and the end result is a modern and sleek kitchen. And Sharp’s SMD2480CS Easy Wave Open Microwave Drawer is an ideal candidate for a handy hidden appliance.
We like to incorporate this same approach with other small appliances in our kitchens. When re-designing your kitchen space, consider setting aside a special hidden shelf or cabinet to tuck away other appliances that take up counter space like a toaster oven, blender or mixer. You’ll be amazed how this small fix can free up major space in your kitchen.
