What Houzz contributors are saying:
Assign it to an alcoveIf your kitchen has a chimney breast or other structural bulkhead that creates alcoves, it can be very handy to use these for housing small appliances. In this cookspace, the wall units in the alcoves create cubbyholes for a microwave and toaster.
Let it loose on the worktopIf you have a compact kitchen and don’t want to sacrifice a kitchen unit for an integrated microwave, don’t be put off leaving a microwave out on the worktop. A standalone model in the same finish as your main appliances can look very smart on the top of your units. Just make sure the top of it doesn’t become a dumping ground for papers and post – it looks untidy and is a potential safety hazard.The microwave oven here is tucked into an alcove at the side of the chimney breast and balances nicely against the toaster on the other side.

Choose a rustic range cookerHankering after the country life? Look the part, along with the wax jacket and wellies, by installing one of these extra-wide beauties (though admittedly you’ll need space to squeeze one in). More stylish than the average cooker, a typical range has lots of hobs, so is ideal for keen cooks. The original heat-storage models are made of cast-iron and stay on all day to give homes the snuggle factor. To save on bills, choose a modern dual-fuel version.
