Behind the AGA wall is a small pantry, complete with a Sub Zero Pro fridge. The unit is artfully placed so that it can be seen from the main room, because a fridge like this is not to be hidden from view. Its rugged looks complements the more rustic elements of the kitchen.
A cabinet overlay keeps a mini fridge hidden for a clean and seamless look in this contemporary walk-in closet. Custom shelves and illuminated hanging rods are deluxe accents in this luxurious closet belonging to Khloe Kardashian.
As seen on season one of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson updated this century-old kitchen with stainless steel appliances, pretty subway tile backsplash and new custom white cabinetry. For a client who loves to cook, Sarah installed a gas stove with a large vent hood, double ovens, a wine fridge and a hidden dishwasher built into the cabinets.
You’ve seen them in magazines and on TV, no doubt — built-in coffee bars complete with a sink, fridge and lighted shelving, like this one that Lisa Robazza designed “to utilize an awkward space under a stair in a small kitchen for a client who entertains often.” All those pricey perks are nice, for sure, but you can get the same effect for free.
