Concealing a dishwasher with a panel serves both functional and aesthetic purposes. It blends into the surrounding decor maintaining a cohesive look in the kitchen.

A panel also allows for flexibility in kitchen layout and design because it enables the dishwasher to be placed anywhere in the kitchen without disrupting the flow of the space. It is a very popular choice in modern home designs.

Appliance Garage

How many small appliances call your countertop home? Rather than cook in a cluttered kitchen, designate an area to place your toasters, coffee makers, rice cookers, etc. to minimize disarray.

An appliance garage will blend seamlessly in your kitchen and conceal the appliances you use frequently - so they are still easy to access.
