Kitchen Renovation Remodel Design Ideas

Cool Idea: Design Your Kitchen to Reflect Your Style

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member diywithadd from the Su Casa group:.

Whether you're planning a big budget kitchen renovation or a small budget kitchen upgrade, it's the little details that matter. One detail we took into account was the microwave. Since we hardly ever use it, and since microwaves aren't sexy, we didn't want it to be front and center in our kitchen. We definitely didn't want it sitting on a counter or hanging out right over our very sexy Bertazzoni range.

So, instead, we designed our cabinets with a slot for the microwave to slide in underneath the counter. Below the microwave cubby is a tall pull-out drawer that houses microwave-friendly storage containers. This makes for a convenient little "leftover" station. Above the microwave is nothing but uncluttered countertop, and that kind of real estate is priceless in our tiny New York kitchen. I love that our microwave is out of sight and out of mind until we need to reheat last night's mac and cheese.

I am amazed at the transformation of your kitchen! If there were no context to these photos I wouldn't have believed that they were the same kitchen. Fantastic job.
