Cherry Kitchen Island with Built-In Microwave
This island is a classic beauty, built of cherry cabinets and topped with white marble countertop with a simple square edge. The built-in microwave brings food preparation down to a safe and convenient level, and frees the countertops of clutter. Lowering the microwave is one of the first elements of a plan to prepare a home for aging-in-place Baby Boomers.
The cabinet doors, drawer fronts and frames are crafted of solid cherry hardwood in our traditional Carlton door style, enhanced by a medium-stain factory finish. Bright polished stainless steel cup pulls tie the trim on the microwave into the piece.
The rich tones of the cherry cabinets are reflected in the grain of the complementary hardwood laminate flooring. Room furnishings, seen in the background, include a dining set in a traditional cherry style with plaid upholstered chairs. Island decor is limited to a simple pottery bowl and trivet.More Photos
