Kitchen Trends-Microwaves

With all the new "farmhouse" trends in the houses we are building and designing, a microwave really doesn't fit in a traditional farmhouse, does it? In fact, I have a friend that was meant to have a microwave in her island, but she ended up liking a toaster oven even in that spot more, so she no longer has a microwave! 

In the latest house KRC Homes, LLC built, the homeowner does not have a microwave in the kitchen.  Instead it is in her beautiful walk in pantry. 

The cabinets and shelving in this beautiful pantry were all custom made.

Here is the microwave, neatly tucked away

If you can't tuck your microwave away neatly, you can always install a microwave DRAWER in your island! We had one client recently install one in their new kitchen.

See the microwave disguised here in the island? It opens like a drawer.
