Where to put the microwave
I'm trying to figure out where to put a small microwave when my kitchen is remodeled. I'd also be interested in recommendations for a microwave.
I don't want the microwave under the counter or over the range, I don't want to spend enough to get one of the nifty ones that mounts under an upper, and I don't have a pantry to put it in. I think my options are to put it on a counter (which takes space I'd rather not lose), on a microwave shelf (but I hate the way they stick out), or, if I can find one that's small enough, I could maybe put it in the bottom shelf of an upper cabinet (but then, what do you do about the exposed cabinet sides? Or do you keep the cabinet closed when you're not using it?).
What have you all done that's attractive and functional?
