Have you all heard of a microwave drawer? I had not heard of one until we started designing our kitchen with my friend and kitchen designer Debra Hupman? Maybe I’m late to this party, but it was a whole new concept for me.
(pantry in last house)
You might recall that we kept our microwave in the pantry in our last house. It certainly wasn’t convenient, but it sure did serve a purpose. I didn’t want to see it sitting on the counter in our kitchen, and we really couldn’t find a place in the design for it. Our pantry was a working pantry, and it’s also where I had my bake station, the blender, the toaster, and a sink. So, putting the microwave in there made perfect sense and worked well for us.
A microwave drawer is just what it sounds like. This is the exact one we are getting, and you can see it here. It is a drawer built into the cabinet design. You pull it out, and what do you know??? It’s a microwave. You set the dishes, bowls, etc. in it, close it, push the buttons, and nuke your food. And by the way, this is not a sponsored post. We just wanted to let you know about it.
It looks so much better than having a microwave on the counter – at least for me and my family.
Our island will be very long, and there is plenty of room to place it in the cabinet design there.
It will also be very convenient in that spot.
If any of you have a microwave drawer, let me know how you like it? I can’t wait to find out.
