Microwave drawer vs. microwave on a shelf
I have to decide if I would like a nice 36 inch wood hood above my range that would go with my new cherry cabinets and have a microwave drawer in the island or have a 30 inch stainless hood with cabinets above it and a microwave on a 24 inch shelf nearby. Whatever I decide, will have to stay with my kitchen for the next 20 years and I will be stuck. No children in the home and it is just my husband and I. The first option with the wooden hood looks best and the ventilation would be excellent and the microwave drawer I am not sure about. The second option would look okay and ventilation will be just okay but I could replace the microwave so easily. Does anybody love or hate their microwave drawer and wish they choose the shelf variety? Any pros or cons that I missed would be appreciated.
