What does your design really deserve?
For a Manhattan one bedroom condominium overlooking the Hudson, what kind of kitchen would complement its minimalist design? Imported cabinetry, granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances right? That’s what is expected! But what kind of kitchen does this room deserve? In a room where every article has a sculptural significance and the real focal point is the incredible view, we think that an exposed messy kitchen can be a visual liability. So why not create completely hidden kitchens for rooms such as these?
YesterTec introduces our version of cabinetry for kitchens. Till now we have been known for our innovative line of Kitchen Workstation Furniture that can completely conceal ALL of the appliances in beautifully styled freestanding pieces. Now we are introducing a new line that is more like cabinetry than furniture. But we are not out to compete with all of the other cabinet options that are on the market. Instead, we are offering something that is so unique, you just won’t find it anywhere else.
Utilizing YesterTec’s industry unique ‘Stealth’ technology, completely hidden kitchens can be created that can blend into any design style.
Meet our STEALTH KITCHEN MODULES ™. They define a new standard of Luxury!
In a nutshell, we’ve created Modules that are very similar to our super efficient workstations, only now they can be combined together and built-into the wall. All the appliances, sink, countertops and storage systems can be completely hidden. Our range Module is 29” deep and features a 30” oven, a microwave/hood or a second oven/hood, a 30” cooktop and countertop space concealed by our patented ‘Stealth’ technology, the U.L. Listed pocketing door system that allows the appliances to operate only when the doors are opened and stored in their pockets. The Sink Module is 29” deep and includes a large sink and countertop concealed by pocketing bi-fold doors and a full sized integrated dishwasher. The Refrigerator/Freezer Modules feature various models from Subzero’s 700 series. The full height storage pantries and working pantries are also 29” deep, creating more efficient work space and storage areas than standard cabinetry. There is even a Stealth Mini-Kitchen Module that incorporates all the features of our award winning UK68B Armoire Mini-kitchen.
The images above and below show an apartment with an all panel design concealing the kitchen and entertainment center. The pattern, color and style of the panels can completely transform the look of this multi-task room.
The exposed door and drawer panels can be made in stained wood, painted wood or even plastic laminate. They can be styled by the room’s designer to blend into a wall of exquisitely styled wood paneling (for Period designs) or they can even ‘disappear’ behind Trompe l’oeil paintings or Digital Graphics for the ultimate ‘Stealth’ look! The Modules can even be used to hide the more technical ‘messy’ parts of the kitchen while allowing other freestanding kitchen workstations to become ‘pieces of sculpture’ in the room.
The possibilities are endless. The Modules can accommodate Straight line, L- shape, Galley, even Peninsular kitchen layouts. The extra deep Modules reduce the amount of frontage required to create a full-sized kitchen. So a typical Module kitchen can actually save floor space, which in turn saves on building materials, heating and cooling costs, etc., perhaps the most ‘Green’ design approach there is!
This new standard of Luxury is not for those who need to flaunt the latest and greatest design trend. Instead, this is a more modest style for those of many income levels who are comfortable in a simpler but more dignified environment. The Modules can be used to enhance a multi-purpose salon with gilded ceilings as well as a heavy timbered log structure. Any room whose emphasis is less on the kitchen and more on something else can benefit.
