Installing an over the range microwave is a good way to save space in the kitchen since the microwave will not take up counter space. If you already have a built in microwave replacing it with a new one is quick and easy. If you currently have a range hood don’t worry, installing an over the range microwave is still an easy diy project.
Every microwave comes with a mounting hardware kit and instructions for installation. Many over the range microwaves also provide templates for drilling the wall and cabinet for mounting screws and venting. Before you begin look over the instructions and locate all of the hardware and templates provided.
