E. DeNicola, I didn't find any washing machines that were hidden in kitchens but it's common to have a washing machine in the kitchen in Europe. They are usually just tucked in like a dishwasher. If your kitchen has farmhouse style covering it with a skirt could be cute:

Hello, E. DeNicola,

Not sure what your washer looks like but you could also try something like this image from Electrolux above - the cabinets could be adjusted to the height of your mobile machine - it may be worth pursuing if you haven't found a solution yet?

Additionally, consider bi-fold and/or faux cabinet front doors as in this image -


they could be added to conceal the washer if the cabinet depth is designed to accommodate the appliance depth. Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Marty
