Microwave on an open shelf
I am in the final (?!) stages of designing my kitchen for a new construction house and have gotten lots of help from this forum.
My husband really wants to put a microwave drawer in the island but I think it would be better on an open shelf above the counter in the "snack area." I am visualizing a kid pantry below the counter with open space for prep and the microwave above it.
I don't want to spend the $ on a built in microwave and feel that if we do a trim kit and the unit breaks, I'd have to replace it anyway. My plan keeps the kids out of my prep area and as they get older, allows them to make a snack (popcorn, etc.) independently.
What do you think? Does anyone have any pictures of how this would look?
RHome410- if you are out there- isn't this the set up you have? If so, how does it work for your family?
