Where o where to put the microwave? Instead of investing in a built in microwave with a trim kit, why not tuck it into the pantry? Eyesore averted!

A microwave doesn't stay hot like an oven. As long as the doors are open while the microwave is running, there will not be a ventilation issue. If it is a microwave that vents in the back, make sure you leave enough room around it for air flow. I've used this solution numerous times and I am not aware of any humidity issues or moisture issues.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"I call this the chicken test," says architect James Crisp. "If you're making a chicken dish — chicken soup, fried chicken or what have you — you need to be able to wash, cut and prepare it with ease. If you can't, it's miserable. This is how I determine where all the kitchen features, including the pantry, should go."
