Our innovative Mini-Kitchen Armoires conceal complete compact kitchens within exquisite pieces of furniture that can be styled to blend with the décor of any room. Many sizes and models are available. They can be unfitted, freestanding pieces or they can be built-in.
They are the perfect solution for any upscale multi-task room that needs to conceal a messy kitchen. They can save space too as there is no need to build a separate room to hide a typical kitchen. And saving space is the most GREEN strategy of all!
The key engineering feature that differentiates YesterTec Mini-kitchens from ALL others is their ability to safely conceal the built-in cooking appliances (the oven and cooktop). Both of these appliances will not operate with the bi-fold doors closed in front of them. When the doors are opened and placed back into their pockets, the power to the appliances is activated. YesterTec is the only company in the WORLD that offers this patented, U.L. Listed safety technology. And Only 120V power is required to operate any model!
Residential Mini-Kitchen Applications: Studio Apartment, Guest Suite, In-Law Suite, Master Bedroom Suite, Home office, Sun Room, Game Room, Home Theater, Pool house.
Commercial Unit Kitchen Applications: Micro Studio Apartment, Extended Stay Suite, Condo Hotel Owners’ Suite, Senior Living Apartment, Executive Office, Boardroom, Employee Lounge

Should you need more storage, refrigeration or prep space, you can also add a separate piece of Kitchen Workstation Furniture to do the job. Let the Mini-kitchen handle most of the technical tasks and add an island or cupboard if you need more kitchen. That is the beauty of using separate pieces for kitchens, and the resulting ensemble still can flawlessly blend into a multi-task room. Or you can opt for our wider Master Kitchen models that have additional storage and refrigerator capacity attached directly to our core mini-kitchen models. Another alternative for larger mini-kitchens is our Stealth Kitchen Module line (see below) that allows several modules to be combined to form completely concealed kitchens.

Once you have reviewed that list and know which model you want, we can send the styling information to you and we can give you exact prices over the phone, as all of the standard options are in our computer’s pricing database.

Most of the models are shipped in two separate but completely finished pieces, typically separated at the countertop. Appliances and sink are included but shipped separately with the order. Typically, a handy man or contractor who is familiar with kitchen installations is needed to install the mini-kitchen. So that your contractor can prepare for its arrival, we will send the rough-in electrical and plumbing drawings and installation instructions that correspond to your model.
