Hiding the microwave & Looking for cjc123 and mnerg???

posted by: flynnnj on 02.18.2012 at 12:05 pm in Kitchens Forum

I need help planning an appliance garage to hide a small microwave and Tassimo coffee maker. I only use each item 1-2 times/day and really don't want to see them when they're not in use. I want to put them under glass front doors.

You mentioned a tilt-up door on another thread. How would I do that? Do I order a 36" wide door and find the right hinges and glides and do it myself? Would a 36" wide door (by 18" high) be too bulky? Should I split it into 2 doors?

I asked my kitchen designer if my cabinets from Jim Bishop could do this. They only offer a flip-up door which ends up blocking the glass-front cabinets that are directly above the appl. garage. Besides being concerned about the door bumping into and covering the glass I won't be able to get to dishes or coffee cups.

I guess I could be SUPER organized and remember to take out the dishes or coffee cups first but that seems like way too much thinking in the morning and especially when there's company. Needing an extra dish or coffee cup could turn into a real hassle and end up complicating simple every day tasks.

I had no idea that wanting to hide these 2 appliances would be such a challenge. I need any and all suggestions at this point. I hope there is a way I can hide them...that's practical and affordable. HELP!

I have been researching this as well - I am converting a second story bathroom in an older house into a laundry room. Because I want to stack mine, I was specifically looking for sets where doors would/could hinge on the same side. I have decided on Electrolux 60 series because of that feature and their positive reviews. For what it's worth, Electrolux bills these as having a "perfect balance" system making them ideal for upstairs installation, but since I haven't installed them yet I can't comment. Based on my experience, a lot of shaking with any unit comes from improper installation. I am asking my plumber and contractor to set ours up with a pan and floor drain, and we are creating a reinforced platform for the units to sit on. I have an LG W/D in a closet off of our dining room in our summer house and they are very quiet and don't shake, so I am not particularly worried about having a quiet set in an upstairs room. Typing that last sentence is just asking for trouble from the appliance gods. Oh well.
