My compact office/kitchen's hybrid nature made me wonder if it were possible to have an "all-in-one" kitchen, just like my trusty HP printer/scanner/copier/fax machine. And of course, with tiny homes increasing in popularity, appliance engineers are happy to help! Here's a look at some all-in-ones that literally have everything PLUS the kitchen sink. (No fax machines that I can see, though. Not that anyone uses them anyway.)
This cupboard kitchen from Culshaw Bell looks more like it should contain coats and clothes than a culinary workspace. But contain it it does; this baby has everything from a microwave, fridge, sink, toaster, and places to store your kitchen and food items. It retails for $7,400, but as Curbly suggests, this might be worth a DIY try.
Dornob features this sleek kitchenette from French design company Kitchoo. It cooks, it cleans, and it all closes up into a modern cabinet looks more like a media console than a kitchen. (Via The Tiny Life.)
Frodo WISHES he had to trek to these Two Towers -- he'd have been able to fix himself second breakfast then go take a nap on the couch. The Tower Kitchen by Philippe Starck has hot elements in one tower (like the oven and microwave) and the cold elements in anther (like the fridge and freezer). No mention of where you can throw the One Ring, though. Maybe the oven gets as hot as the fires of Mount Doom? (Via Dornob.)
This fun, round red kitchen reminds me of something from Disneyland's Tomorrowland. From Spy Home Design.
Erin at Unclutterer has uncovered this très useful range/oven/dishwasher hybrid from Candy. Unfortunately it's only available in Europe right now. Darn them and their national healthcare, six weeks vacation, and awesome appliances!
