This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in April of 2020. A dedicated microwave stand can not only free up valuable space on your countertop, but can also enhance your kitchen by adding versatile storage space and an attractive piece of furniture. They are usually designed to be freestanding and often have casters for easy repositioning. Available in a range of styles, they can also coordinate or contrast nicely with the rest of your decor. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

May 20, 2020:

A microwave stand is a practical piece of furniture that is primarily, yet not exclusively, designed to provide additional countertop and storage space to a kitchen. Having said that, they function equally as well in a studio, office, or anywhere that is lacking in space. They are often small enough to be moved around and some even have casters to facilitate easy repositioning. Choosing the ideal one for yourself will depend largely on its size and where it will be positioned, the size of the microwave it will be housing and your personal preference regarding the style. With a range of finishes, materials, and design aspects they can easily be coordinated with your existing kitchen cabinets, appliances, and hardware.

Featuring a more industrialized look, the Mr Ironstone Baker's Rack, the AmazonBasics Kitchen Rolling Cart, the YMYNY Industrial Bakers Rack, and the Giantex Free Standing 4-Tier all have metal frames and open shelving, making them durable and versatile, however, it does mean your stored items will be on display and can easily look cluttered. Choosing a cart with doors, such as the Sauder Caraway Floor Cabinet, the Hodedah Import Kitchen Cart, and the Vilobos Stainless Steel Cabinet will give the furniture a more closed-in feeling, and may be better suited to a one-roomed studio. The Home Source Double Door Cabinet has an additional cupboard above the counter, making it comprehensive enough to be used as a mini-kitchen within its own right.
