Hiding Small Appliances

The kitchen cabinets for the flip house in Vegas will arrive in a few weeks. In addition to the main cabinetry that surrounds the big appliances (range, refrigerator, etc.) I added a series of tall cabinets on an unused wall and included two pantries, one for food and the other to house bulk items and small appliances.

In my kitchen in California, I store small appliances in a cabinet hidden under the peninsula. It’s there that my blender, mixer, ice cream maker, and food processor live. Seeing a toaster or coffee maker or tea kettle if plain sight doesn’t bother me, in fact they can make a kitchen look more lived in. And if you use them every day, why put them away? I don’t have a colorful mixer but I also like those out on display, they are always cheerful to look at.

I found several attractive solutions for storing small appliances, including clever hutches and cabinets, appliances garages, and some well designed pantries too.

I’m always curious how people organize their kitchens. Where in your kitchen do you store your small appliances?
