Everyone loves speedy cooking for getting their cravings met immediately, and now people are discovering a better place to put their favorite appliance instead of over the stove or on the countertop. One of the hottest products we’ve seen lately is the microwave drawer or built-in microwave in a base cabinet. An immediate benefit is that by moving the microwave away from the stove, it keeps the cook from having to reach over the stove. Planning for longterm use, reaching can become difficult for some people, while an under-counter microwave is always accessible to everyone.

However, while this accessiblity can have many benefits, homes with small children will have to take precautions until they are old enough to understand it is not a toy. Left unsupervised, inquisitive and creative tots might experiment on inappropriate items, such as amusing themselves by melting GI Joes. But older children, taught properly, will delight in the independence of making a snack for themselves.

Another reason to consider is to free up space for a larger, fancy or more powerful ventilation hood over the stove. More counter space and easier use – thoughtful placement of each and every item by a knowledgeable designer will create a kitchen that your family will enjoy for years to come.

    Cabinets can really work wonders in kitchens. I was never comfortable with my kitchen since i could not access things easily and it looked so crowded. Later i did a cabinet refacing by myself with the help of experts and their Do-it-yourself video. I was happy to design myself and re-organize the cabinets. There were lots of unused spaces and cabinets were so cheap looking and dingy. Now i have the perfect refreshing kitchen, built within our budget.
