These days, luxury kitchens have all the devices and appliances that are required to make cooking a pleasant experience. However, that doesn’t mean they have to be on show all the time. The concept of hidden or Butlers kitchens have been in trend for a number of years and are becoming increasingly popular.

You can conceal state-of-art coffee stations or small appliances, along with wine collections and refrigeration units to create a clean and minimalist look.
