You may have already had the ingenious idea to disguise a pantry behind an integrated cabinet door or integrate your fridge into a kitchen unit, but have you considered concealing your entire kitchen? Yep, that’s a thing now. And not only is it possible to create a completely invisible kitchen, it’s also becoming a huge design trend.
With living spaces getting smaller and storage getting smarter, clean, minimalist kitchens are getting increasingly popular. Items that once cluttered worktops – kettles, plug sockets, knife blocks, even taps and sinks – can now disappear into flush cabinets and uninterrupted surfaces to make the most of all space available.

'Using a kitchen design that conceals the day-to-day running of a kitchen is becoming increasingly popular as homeowners opt to leave chores for later, giving them more time to socialise with their family or friends,' explains Daniele Brutto, Hub Kitchens' (opens in new tab) co-founder.
'As well as incorporating a series of doors to create a wall, worktops which cover sinks and work spaces make organising the daily routine easier and create a calmer and less stressful environment, especially for those where space is limited.'
'If your kitchen is the central hub of the home and is used for all sorts of activities from reading the daily papers, homework with the children, Friday night parties, through to relaxing Sunday dinners with the family, a concealed kitchen is the ultimate must-have chameleon kitchen for everyone to enjoy.'
