No matter what size your kitchen might be convenience is key and space is always at a premium. Squeezing in “one more thing” can end up looking like a mess But with a little customization hidden kitchen island features can be convenient and still look good. The ends of kitchen islands are often overlooked as attention tends to be focused on the two longer sides. An under-the-counter fridge was tucked behind a panel on a wide kitchen aisle [top] allowing the detailed trim on the side to shine but adding a handy place to store drinks out of the cook’s way.
A push-to-open latch on a cabinet pillar panel conceals shelves for cookbook storage in this raised eating area. I wish I had seen this during the design phase of our house.
Two of my pet peeves are the pair of “required by code” electrical outlets on our French Gray island. Here, an outlet is hidden by the drawer front when closed –perfect.
