The Magic of Hidden Appliances

The Magic of Hidden Appliances The Magic of Hidden Appliances

As we find the business and workload of daily life increases; the need for functional, clean and open spaces has never been more of a trend. That’s why at Cook & Bathe we have a curation of stunning integrated appliances that best achieve and enhance a minimalist style of living. Our selection of integrated appliances comes from many luxury brands such as Kleenmaid, Smeg and Belling who are all renowned for their outstanding craftsmanship and design. 


Why are hidden appliances so popular?


As Minimalism continues (and increases) to trend, people are always looking for new ways to achieve the perfect minimalist design in their Kitchen. Hiding your appliances behind your cabinetry is an effective and effortless way to achieve a minimalist style within your home. Integrated appliances blend seamlessly into your kitchen cabinetry, creating a cohesive and uninterrupted look. This makes your kitchen appear less cluttered and more spacious while utilising the cabinetry and colour palette to create a unified and collected design. 


Integrated appliances are built to fit flush with your cabinetry, ensuring no awkward gaps or protrusions. This maximises space efficiency. This is particularly important for smaller kitchens where every inch of space counts.


It is common for those who opt for an open floor plan, to find hidden appliances desirable. Open plan living involves removing barriers like walls and doors that typically divide different functional areas, creating a unified space that combines the kitchen, living room, and dining room into one large, open area. This idea of uninterrupted design and space efficiency is achieved through integrated appliances, as they blend seamlessly into your kitchen, removing any disruptions in design or functionality.

 

What to know when selecting your appliances


Knowing exactly what appliances and functions you want to incorporate into your kitchen design is incredibly important. From the very beginning of the designing process, adequate space and dimensions must be considered to: 

  1. Ensure you have sufficient space for your desired appliances.
  2. Maintain the flow and feel of the space, preserving your minimalist aesthetic.
  3. Ensure that the functionality and operation of your appliances require minimal effort, promoting an effortless and relaxing atmosphere.

When considering your options, think about whether you prefer a single or double-door integrated fridge. For integrated dishwashers, you can choose between a semi-integrated or fully integrated model. Proper planning and consideration will help you create a kitchen that is both beautiful and efficient, seamlessly blending style and practicality.



What hidden appliances are currently trending?

A double-door fridge can occupy a significant amount of kitchen space, making the Kleenmaid Fully Integrated Fridge/Freezer increasingly popular. It provides a solution for those who prefer a kitchen design that doesn’t draw immediate attention to the fridge. The Kleenmaid Fully Integrated Fridge/Freezer is perfect for families and those seeking a seamless integrated design for their kitchen and with a reversible door configuration, you can simply install two side by side creating a double fridge/freezer. Additionally, this integrated fridge features a slide-out frozen pizza/dessert tray, easy-to-use electronic touch controls with child lock and a 5-year warranty.

 

Another popular integrated appliance by Kleenmaid is their integrated dishwashers. With semi and fully-integrated models to choose from, Kleenmaid offers solutions to bring all design visions to life. The Kleenmaid Fully Integrated Dishwasher Stainless Steel 60cm offers a 5-star water rating, 15 place settings and a height adjustable cabinet making it a sustainable choice that doesn't compromise on style. Alternatively, Kleenmaid offers a Fully Integrated Compact Dishwasher for those who need a smaller option.

 

The allure of hidden appliances lies in their understated design and profound impact on the kitchen. They enable the creation of stunning minimalist kitchens without sacrificing functionality. To achieve a truly minimalist kitchen, concealing your appliances behind elegant cabinetry is an unbeatable strategy.
