What is a Microwave Cabinet

To accommodate for a microwave oven, a microwave cabinet is a cabinet that is designed to hold, store, or conceal a microwave oven. Microwave cabinets are often built into the top row of cabinets, above the oven, or built into the lower cabinets. At times, you will find a separate island cabinet dedicated to the microwave oven.

Microwave cabinets are built to house a wide range of microwave sizes and dimensions. If you are looking for a microwave cabinet that is custom built for your exact microwave unit, most cabinet manufacturers will be able to create a custom piece for you. There are a variety of microwave cabinet styles available, some are designed to conceal the microwave oven from sight and some prominently display almost as part of your kitchen's decor.
