Where is your microwave?
I'm thiking of getting rid of my over-the-range micro/exhaust putting my it on the countertop next to the frig. It would be out of the way and doesn't really show in that area. I have lots of counterspace and don't use that area for anything other than the toaster. I hardly use the micro for anything except reheating.
I would like to install a nice range hood with a quiet exhaust fan and tile backsplash. Would this be a bad idea for resale? I wonder if buyers might be put off by the micro on the countertop.
