What Houzz contributors are saying:
Fitting an oven at waist-height is kinder on your knees, and it fits nicely into a bank of units like this, as does the refrigerator. Keeping the cabinet doors and the gadgets’ fronts flush and choosing cabinet handles that match those of the oven will help to integrate the appliances to maximum effect.Tip: This goes for range hoods, too. Build the hood into custom cabinetry that matches or complements the rest of the kitchen.
For cleaning the microwave, mix a few spoonfuls of lemon juice with water in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave it for two to three minutes. Allow the steam to be trapped inside to loosen the gunk and scrub it thoroughly with a damp cloth and slices of lemon. The same procedure can be repeated, substituting lemon with baking soda or vinegar as well. For the refrigerator, refer to the all-purpose cleaner recipe to clean the insides of the refrigerator. Tip: Leave half a cup of baking soda at the back of your shelves to absorb any lurking odours in the house.
