The kitchen is where many people spend most of their waking hours while in the home. If you’re planning on renovating and improving your kitchen, keep one of the latest trends in home décor in mind: maximize kitchen space by hiding appliances. This will not only create a cleaner aesthetics but it will also create the illusion of more space in your kitchen.

These are the four ultimate hidden appliances that any new kitchen should have:

A large fridge or countertop appliance often draws the eye and makes the space feel more cluttered. When interior designers design customized kitchens, one of the top choices is to build custom cabinetry that will hide these appliances. A built-in fridge will look similar to the design of the cupboards that surround it, while an appliance garage can provide plenty of space to keep your stand mixer, toaster oven, and other midsize items. You can even shop for a cooktop with retractable burners if you want to maximize prep space.

Trash Compactor

The trash can in your kitchen can cause multiple problems, in addition to taking up too much space. An open can might carry food odors that spread to other rooms. A trash compactor is an excellent solution to all of these issues, since it takes up very little space and often will require a step to open.

If you like to watch TV while you cook, but want more space, consider adding a cabinet that will house your television. This allows you to open the cupboard when your favorite show starts, but keep it closed when the TV isn’t in use. Custom kitchen designers also offer options to add cabinetry that can hold your tablet or other mobile device, since many people use them to read recipes while cooking but don’t necessarily want to keep them on the counter where food can cause damage.

Slide-Out Shelves

When designing your kitchen, you may wonder where you will store spices, boxes and cans of food, and other items that you typically store in cupboards if this space is taken by appliances. Slide or swing-out shelves are excellent options, since they allow space to store all of your ingredients without taking up extra space within the cupboards.

When designing your own customized kitchen, try to incorporate the refrigerator and freezer right into the cupboards so it won’t be noticeable and will blend in nicely with the surroundings.

Hi, everyone! How are you today? I hope you’re doing great, feeling great and looking great! 🙂

Talking about “looking great”… I was thinking today about how looking good can affect my mood. I am not the superficial type (LOL) but I have to admit I am feeling good about myself lately and that can get me a little cranky. I am eating healthy (as much as possible anyways) but I do not sleep enough. I always work until late – very late, in fact. And this does not do well for my skin and my overall mood. I am in my mid 30’s and I am feeling a little dull lately. Everything feels “blah” to me… I was looking myself in the mirror and I wondered where that Luciane I knew was going… Does anyone feel this way sometimes? I am sure we all do, right?… Yep, things are changing and I am seeing them every time I look in the mirror! LOL I truly laugh because I know that changes, of any kind, are truly inevitable.

Well, maybe I need to sleep more, take a day off, put some sliced cucumbers on my eyes and drink a glass of wine to relax. I know these things won’t take the fine lines that are getting so insistent lately, but I am sure they will make me feel a little happier and less tired, which will definitely improve my senseless mood! 🙂

Enjoy your week, my friends… let’s try to take care of ourselves, feel good, happy and let’s laugh more often…

Talk to you later!

with Love,

    Trust me my friend, you are MUCH too hard on yourself! You have been under much stress, above and beyond the little annoyances of every day life. Maybe you need a little getaway, with a girlfriend? Get out and have some fun! The lines that you think are there will somehow, mysteriously disappear!
