4 Cleverly Hidden Kitchens You'd Love to Unveil

Now you see it, now you don’t!


There is no denying that many homeowners consider the kitchen as the heart of the home. It's also not suprising that it can be the busiest spot inside the house. For those who love cooking and would appreciate keeping clutter out of sight, hiding the kitchen when it's not in use is such a great option to have. This would also work in small spaces where every inch counts.

If this is something that you are considering for your dream home, here are four concealed kitchens that we're currently obsessed with:

Folding wooden panels hide a one-walled kitchen in this private French home in Molieres, France. While there is little counter space available, plenty of storage can be found in the upper and lower cabinets. Across this hidden gem is a big kitchen island that also serves as a breakfast nook and a place to do office or school work.

If you're all about pops of vibrant color then the cheerful hues of this secret kitchen won't disappoint. A small cooking space that can be tucked away when not in use is a brilliant solution that those who don't get to cook often would definitely love. Stepping into this space, one wouldn't think that a bright and happy area is hiding behind those folding doors!

If you have embraced compact living, then you’ll be pleased about this modular hidden kitchen made by German company Miniki. Made of three modules, each is a fully customizable part that lets you dictate what you want to have. You can choose one module to have a two-burner stove and a sink, and another module to house the fridge. Plus, you can choose from 14 different colors.

The best part about this must-have? You can easily put the unit's cover panels down after use—giving you a counter space that you can use any way you want.

If you prefer a simple solution that costs less, you can always opt for white sliding doors that can cover your entire kitchen. Using white can create an illusion of bigger space when the doors are closed, plus, it gives your home a clean and streamlined look.
