Drawer Microwaves Integrate Without Demanding Attention
Posted on January 16, 2013 by kitchendistributors
If you are considering upgrading your kitchen, perhaps it is time you thought about replacing your old microwave with the new sleek designs available today. Integrating a microwave into high-end design is becoming all the rage for newer kitchens. These newly styled upscale versions tuck neatly away into a wall or cabinet.
Manufacturers have recently showcased a number of modern built-in models that are nearly indistinguishable from any other kitchen appliance. For instance, countertop built-in microwave ovens use a standard 120-volt power outlet. The distinction is in the way the microwave is installed. Most countertop designs can be installed the same as a built-in by purchasing an additional trim kit.
The microwave is bordered with strips of metal specifically intended to hide gaps between the main part of the cabinet and the microwave, leaving a toned look that is elegant and sophisticated. Other models recess completely into a wall opening, or cabinet as well. In these cases, gaps have been eliminated between the microwave and the cabinet therefore no extra trim kit is needed.
