Where to Put the Microwave?
If you have the expertise to do it yourself or the extra cash to have it done, mount in on the wall above the range or under a cabinet, but if you can't do it yourself or or can't have it done, then this question can be really important: Do you put it on a kitchen counter taking up a lot of room that you cannot spare, or put it across the room somewhere, out of the way, but making you have to walk back and forth, a couple of times at least, every time you need to use the microwave?
Besides wood and wood-like carts and cabinets, there are also many styles of metal carts available. They are generally more lightweight, and more frequently are on rollers - though there are many wood carts also available on rollers - so you would have the benefit of
- A place to keep your microwave oven;
- Additional storage space; and
- A moveable cart that you can roll up near your kitchen counter, range, refrigerator, or even table, while you prepare your meals, and then easily move it out of the way until prep time for your next meal.
You don't have to nail your new microwave oven to the wall, or let it take up limited and valuable counter space that you need for your food prep and plating.
