Hidden kitchen: the spaces that look super cool

Another major benefit of a hidden kitchen is that you can simply close off the clutter and dirty dishes and make the rest of the space feel clear and serene. I don’t know about you but I’m sold! Our house is manic in the mornings. There are lots of different types of breakfast to prepare and packed lunches to make. Then there are tea, coffee, juice and there often isn’t the time before work to clear everything away.

Check out some of my favourite hidden kitchen ideas right here…
