One way to free up countertop space is to hide clunky appliances like microwaves. These common countertop appliances can easily be mounted during a kitchen remodel, but another idea is to create an “appliance garage.”
This is typically a designated cabinet where you can store other common countertop devices like blenders, toasters, and stand mixers out of sight but close and convenient for everyday use.
