I’ve worked with a few clients who want a hidden fridge. Why? Some people believe it ruins the aesthetics of a kitchen. Others have old appliances in a modern kitchen they want hidden away. Some people just reckon hardware appliances shouldn’t be seen. Whatever the reason – this blog showcases a couple different ways you can hide the fridge in your kitchen.
Disguise your fridge as just another drawer in your kitchen. Drawer coolers are great for water, cheeses, snacks and the smaller things that would usually go in a bulky fridge. Price range varies from $1,500 – $2,800 depending on brand, size and design. The drawer featured in this image is from Fisher & Paykel and can be found on Appliances Online. Some of these cool drawers are multi-temperatured – they cn have up to five temperature settings depending on what you want to put in there. Freezer, chill ,wine and pantry are just some of the modes these drawers can be set to allowing you full flexibility to use your drawer how you want!
If you’re single or a couple, a small hidden fridge can be integrated into one of your kitchen cabinets. Bear in mind that the space will need to be specially prepared for a fridge to go in as it needs to have the right level of ventilation so it doesn’t overheat. There are some ‘how to’ guides out there on how to fix a fridge into a cabinet base if you fancy giving it a go!
Wine/ drink coolers
There’s a lot of awesome, sleek wine cooling fridges and these are our favourite kind of hidden fridge! These fridges work well in your outdoor or indoor kitchen.
