Hiding your kitchen components behind a series of sliding doors and cabinets that look like a part of your wall isn't new. Such installations are usually custom-built, though, requiring some heavy planning and skilled labor to do right. The Stealth Kitchen, a modular system for hiding your kitchen behind unassuming walls, lets you bypass those labor-intensive tasks.
Made by Resource Furniture, the modules look just like fancy tiled walls made of wood at first glance. But, alas, they aren't. Instead, they're a series of drawers and hinged doors that open to reveal a whole host of kitchen elements. Fling three rows of tiles open and you'll find the fridge. Open another set and get access to a sink with overhead shelving units. One drawer can lead to a freezer, while another can open to an induction cooktop. And so on.
Since the system is modular, you can order any configuration of Stealth Kitchen you want, throwing an oven here, a mini-bar there, and a kitchen counter over that side. The basic configuration consists of a 6-foot wide compact module that bundles a sink, cooktop, convection oven, mini-fridge, mini-freezer, a dishwasher, and some storage units (shelves, a double drawer, and a vertical storage compartment). From there, you can throw in multiple modules flanking it, like a full-size double door fridge, a pop-up table, a fold-down countertop, and more, all hidden behind the same wall-like facade. it can be ordered in a variety of wood stain and lacquer finishes, so you can match it to the actual walls of your home.
The Stealth Kitchen is available now. You'll need to request a quote to get pricing, though, so expect it somewhere along the wallet-destroying range.
