Stack ’em high, but consider accessYou can maximise the height potential of tower storage by using the whole span of the cupboard, but remember to think about access to the tallest appliance in the group. In this neat layout, the microwave sits on the shoulders of a tall double oven, but care has been taken to ensure that the double oven is installed lower down in the unit. This enables safe access to the microwave above – reaching for steaming hot bowls and plates from above your head is never a good idea. Another safety consideration is the use of top-down opening doors for appliances placed higher in the tower. These doors can prove obstructive when you’re reaching in from below, whereas a door which opens to the side won’t get in the way.See how these kitchens save space with built-in appliances

All the cabinetry is the same colour "Vert de Terre" by Farrow & Ball. The "Vert de Terre" is quite a subtle muted tone so a wood or paler more natural or neutral coloured counter in marble or quartz would tie it all together really nicely. Are they wood countertops?? If so, what kind of wood? Hi, yes they are wood. It's solid Iroko which lends itself really well to kitchen worktops as it's naturally water resistant and hard wearing. This one is 40 mm thick which makes it nice and chunky. The stiles and rails are 68 mm wide.
