What is a kitchen in a cupboard? 

When space is minimal and you are in need of a practical and unique solution which adds luxury and intrigue to your property then a kitchen in a cupboard might be for you! We believe that functionality is just as important as looks. At Dowers we’ve created a solution that won’t compromise on practicality or beauty.  Made to look like a stunning wooden dresser, showcasing our fantastic workmanship the unit can be built along one wall, and be left shut when not in use to look like part of the room furniture. But come eating or entertaining time, just open the doors or the bi-fold pocket doors slide effortlessly open and slide away to reveal a fully working kitchen that could feature any of the below:

  • Two ring ceramic induction hob
  • Microwave oven/combination microwave and oven
  • Sink
  • Tap
  • Extractor
  • 3 high level cupboards or open shelves (with spice shelves/storage integrated into the doors)
  • Wooden work surface
  • Integrated lighting
  • Dishwasher

Obviously the beauty of being bespoke means that we are not restricted to the list above and can work entirely around your requirements.

Where could a kitchen cupboard go?

Holiday rentals in the UK have grown in popularity ever since staycationing’ became the only available holiday option in 2020. Many people are seeing potential in smaller homes and spaces which they are able to rent out for unique holiday hideaways. To ensure that the holiday feels like a retreat rather than just staying in someone else’s house, our kitchens in a cupboard provide a practical yet opulent alternative to a standard kitchen. Being bespoke means that we can craft a kitchen in a cupboard for even the smallest of spaces to ensure that you have maximum storage, minimum clutter and a premium finish.
