When remodeling a kitchen, the goal is always to include a seamless, flowing design. Every component should work together and complement each other, whether your mission is to create a warm and rustic style or add the cold steel of an industrial motif.
This is often done through carefully chosen colors and materials that work well together and fit your theme. Some homeowners, however, decide to take it a step further by covering their appliances with appliance panels.
Why Use Appliance Panels?
Well, it certainly does achieve that seamless look that we mentioned before! As a real-life example, take a look at the project photo below.
The panels create the illusion of a slimmer refrigerator and freezer, blending it in beautifully with the surrounding cabinetry.
What Should You Be Aware of Before Installing Appliance Panels?
Including these panels in your kitchen’s design needs to be a carefully researched and planned decision. Because of potential ventilation issues, not every refrigerator or dishwasher can be simply covered. It’s best to select a panel-ready appliance that is specifically built for the purpose.
To explore all your options, be sure to talk to a kitchen remodeling professional near you.
