Ready to save some space in the kitchen? Maybe it's just time for a new microwave and it's the perfect excuse for an upgrade. An above range microwave can do both with just a little effort.
Installing an over the range microwave is a two person job but it is quite easy. The microwave comes with templates and mounting hardware so you can finish the job by just following a few easy steps.
A couple of things to pay close attention to:
- Venting - plan the venting according to your kitchen. If you need a recirculating vent make sure the microwave you buy offers that option.
- Cabinet height - If you are replacing a hood, check that there is enough space for you microwave to fit comfortably above the range. If it ends up too high or too low it will be inconvenient and it's not worth the trouble.
