Microwave location

28 days ago

Ideally our (small, countertop) microwave would be near the fridge (since we mostly use it to reheat leftovers or defrost things) but there is no good spot for it there. Our designer suggested putting it in a shelf cabinet as part of our 12” deep pantry cabinet (the MW shelf cabinet idea came after he drafted the initial plan below).

Does it make more sense to instead split the pantry cabinet into an upper wall cabinet (33” tall) and a shallow (12” deep) base cabinet, with the standard 18” between them and a shallow countertop (13.5” deep, 33” wide)? Aesthetically that seems nicer than a dedicated microwave shelf cabinet.
