When it comes to designing your dream kitchen, you have multitudes of terrific options available to you, from paint and wallpaper to flooring and cupboards. And of course, appliances! Many of today's small appliances are available in a wide variety of colors and styles, and are made to suit just about any type of decor, from Victorian to country comfort to ultra modern.
Color Makes a Statement
Whether you have microwave or other small appliance, you want the color to match you current scheme. A neutral color small appliance will go with any kind of decor from antique to modern and will stay with you for many years.
A color that is popular today is stainless steel, which not only looks great, but is really easy to keep clean too. Usually, all you have to do is give it a quick wipe. Black and white are always popular choices, because they will go with just about any color scheme.
Microwaves with wood grain sides look great, but may not be the best choice, especially if you are one to redecorate frequently. Make sure that whatever color you get, you get a quality microwave that will last for many years. If you get the right color, it will go with any decors you use throughout the years.
Size makes a difference
If you live in an apartment with a small kitchen and does not have much counter or floor space, or if you live in a house that has a nice big kitchen with a lot of room to work in, then the area in which you will keep your microwave oven will play an important part in making your purchasing decision.
You will have to find a microwave oven that will be large enough to cook in and small enough to fit into its designated space. Even if your kitchen is big, you may want to change the place your microwave is in now to a different spot in the future. If your kitchen is small now, you may be making a move to a larger kitchen and will have a lot of room for your small appliances including your microwave oven.
You may want to hide your microwave and other small appliances. If you own your own house and are planning a renovation, then you want to design cubby holes in which to keep your small appliances. The appliances will hide behind doors until you are ready to use them.
Your microwave oven and other small appliances can work for you in any decor and in any size kitchen. You do need to use your creative instincts and that you are not making your purchase of your small appliances on a whim, especially if they match your decor. As long as the small appliances fit into your kitchen decor, they do not have to match. If you like and want a black microwave oven, then buy it as it will easily fit into any color scheme. White and stainless steel will also fit into any color scheme. Using this as a base, you will be able to keep your small appliances for many years without having to replace them.
Your microwave should be large enough in which to do all of your cooking yet small enough to fit into any size space. Even if you now have a large kitchen, you should think about the future and the possibility of remodeling your kitchen. You may want to put the microwave into a different spot in your new kitchen. If you now have a small kitchen, you may move to a larger kitchen in the future.
