Microwave

Hi all, I have a question that may be silly but not sure!  I am wanting to put my microwave Underneath the bench in my Kaboodle kitchen. Would I be able to use a 600 mm Kaboodle cupboard and put the microwave on top of the shelf?..,without the door!  am looking at this as it seems to be a much cheaper option than getting the microwave box and a separate drawer on the bottom. Does this work? Has anyone tried it?

Re: Microwave

The answer is yes! This method I suggest, you will need to use steel angle brackets ( small ones at least eight, four on each side ) to hold the shelf up. Once fitted will fix the shelf in place. The shelf must not move to avoid the danger of the microwave tilting inside the cabinet. Place microwave in place, marvel at your own genius!

 

Cheers,

Red

Redracer01, you’re a champ!! One more question, does Kaboodle sell a one draw setup for the bottom shelf Space or alternatively, could I use just a draw front and make it a cupboard door opening for the bottom part?l by outrun 2 door hinges?

Hello @Dkozzie 

 

Yes you can. However you will need to make provisions for the hinges so that they fit. You also need to put a magnetic latch to hold the door in place. I suggest the item below instead.
