How to Hide Your Refrigerator In Plain Sight With Wood Paneling

A refrigerator is often the largest appliance in the kitchen.  In the last few years appliance manufacturers have made great strides in the overall look and styling of these units, but they still are big, rectangular boxes that can dominate the room. In the kitchen pictured below the beautiful stainless appliances are prominently featured.

Stainless steel remains an extremely popular option for refrigerator doors, but what if you would prefer that the refrigerator not be so noticeable?  A refrigerator designed to accept wood panels is an excellent alternative.

Refrigerators that are panel ready are typically counter-depth or built models that allow the appliance to integrate with the surrounding cabinetry and create that unified seamless look. The panels are styled to match the doors on the cabinetry, which makes that big box in the room almost disappear!
