Kitchen Furniture Conceals Appliances

Nothing spoils the look of a vintage kitchen like the gleam of a dishwasher or refrigerator - or even the monotony of continuous stock cabinets.

Except for the cooktop, no one would guess that a stove and microwave are hiding behind the richly painted doors of the hutch range unit from YesterTec Design Co.

 

Nothing spoils the look of a vintage kitchen like the gleam of a dishwasher or refrigerator - or even the monotony of continuous stock cabinets. Capitalizing on a back-to-traditional trend, YesterTec Design Co. has created a line of hand-built, free-standing kitchen furniture and workstations in traditional styles, including some that conceal modern appliances.

YesterTec's most recent development is a technology for concealing cooking appliances. When closed, the oven unit looks like a hutch, but the flipper doors open and slide back inside the unit, revealing the oven. A control box on the unit connects to the wall outlet and the electric appliance, informing it of when the oven is being used (the unit cannot be used with a gas oven). During use, the doors remain locked open. Once the cooling fan has remained off for a certain amount of time, the doors unlock and can be closed.

The various workstations and individual pieces accommodate many standard appliances. Go to www.yestertec.com for more information.
