A mini kitchen combo unit is an all-in-one, space-saving kitchen unit designed for small spaces that don't accommodate standard appliances. Mini kitchen combo units typically include an electric cook top, small workspace, storage cabinets, refrigerator-and-freezer combo and a working sink.
Mini kitchen combo units are ideal for small spaces, such as apartments, dorm rooms or hotel rooms. These freestanding units have everything that full-sized kitchens have, just on a smaller scale. Though they are smaller than full-sized kitchens, mini combo units are often just as, if not more, expensive.
Mini kitchen combo units come in a variety of shapes and styles, and manufacturers can make them specifically for any design concept. They do not need professional installation and usually require only minimal assembly. Standard mini kitchen combo units need standard water and electric hook-ups to function, while some require gas hook-ups for the cook top.
Common mini kitchen combo unit brands include Dwyer, Boffi, Compact Concepts and Acme Kitchenettes. Brands such as Move Outdoor Kitchen create mini kitchen combo units specifically designed for outdoor use, while Ikea makes movable units perfect for temporary housing. John Strand mini kitchens are specifically for workplace coffee and tea areas, on-site facilities, granny annexes and home offices.
