To see, or not to see…

I’m anticipating living in a house with a main living area of maybe 12×12.  That’s not a lot of space. I also need to have room for the stairs to go the lofts (that I assume I’m going to have). Hmmm. How do I do this.

So here’s one idea for a kitchen:

Hidden Kitchen


I really like this concept. It looks like an armoire.  Only it isn’t. It’s a kitchen. A kitchen in a box.

A few issues with it though. There is little to no sideboard space. Maybe attaching a side board on hinges to that section next to the microwave (where the food cabinet is). That way I can lay it right down and fold it up when I close the kitchen back up.  Maybe the inside of the doors could have hooks to hold cooking utensils and pots and pans and you know, cooking stuff.

Still need to figure out what to do with the dishwasher though. Ooh. Maybe a stand alone dishwasher that has the counter on top. That will give me extra space, plus I can just move it out of the way when I’m not using it.  That might work.

Note to self…. price stand alone dishwashers.
