Microwave is an everyday appliance, used by almost every kitchen owner across the world. So much is the effect of this simple appliance on the overall efficiency of kitchen work, that however small or big a kitchen, people want it to be a part of their space.
But, setting a microwave can be a problem sometimes. For, there are modular kitchens in Ernakulam, Ahmedabad, and other cities, where either the availability of space, or a compromise on the overall styling of the kitchen creates a confusion as to where to put this appliance!
Therefore, we took it upon ourselves to find you the three most brilliant, almost clever spots, to place your microwave! Here, take a look…
1. Keep it over the range
Unlike a sleek hood fan which looks incredibly stylish, having a microwave in its place, over the range, might not seem like the most beautiful option. But as far as the pros are concerned, you will definitely be making the most of whatever limited kitchen space you have. You could have your hood-fan and microwave pull a double duty, and save a good amount of space! The problem? The microwave being too high! You might find it difficult to reach it, especially as you’d use it almost every day, quite a few times. Also, you won’t be getting a sculptural range hood, which looks far more elegant, and is more effective at venting as well.
2. Sit it over the drinks station
If you possess one of those huge Modular kitchens in Kochi, or one of the other big cities, then it won’t be a too much of a stretch to assume you have a drinks station as well? If not, then you might have one of those secondary food-prep spaces. In case you do, these could be the perfect places for you to set your microwave.
3. Set it over the oven
Don’t get confused! It should be an integrated oven, of course! In a very “chef’s kitchen”-like kitchen, you could stop being shy about showing off your stainless steel appliances; especially, if you have a wooden kitchen, your choice of setting for your microwave could balance out the vintage with a touch of modern! The great thing is, you would be getting a perfectly integrated and a very sleek look. The height – too low for the oven and maybe too high for the microwave – that could be the problem you face.
