Between Fridge Storage

furniture style kitchen refrigeration armoire with storage drawers between appliancesSeparating units with a detailed feature draws attention away from the appliances.

Honey-color wood (beautiful knots and all) was used to create a kitchen armoire that houses a pair of integrated Sub-Zero refrigerators with freezer storage drawers.  Between the appliances is a tall stack of small drawers.  One has to wonder if they are truly individual drawers or mixture of false fronts.  Either way, I like the design and the use of various pulls and finishes that make this piece unique.

Mick de Giulio Kitchen Design apothecary style cabinetIt’s not always necessary to hide appliances behind wood panels.  The lack of visible hinges and grilles is a plus.  An apothecary style cabinet with tiny faux drawers houses a pair of refrigerator drawers at the bottom and a microwave pantry above – also ideal for a baking pantry in disguise or hidden breakfast station.  Notice the wood continues over and down the sides of the appliances creating an illusion of one large piece.

I didn’t get the memo about placing an ornate plaque in a niche above and find they distract from the seemingly freestanding units.  I would much rather see large pieces of pottery or baskets – or better yet, nothing at all.
