As of 2015, storage furnishings for microwaves are available from websites such as Sears, Home Depot, Walmart, Amazon and Wayfair. Shoppers can typically choose microwave carts, stands or cabinets, which range in price from about $50 to $300, depending on capacity and construction.
A wide selection of microwave stands are manufactured by brands such as South Shore, Hazelwood Home and Catskill Craftsmen. Microwave storage furnishings are useful in homes where counter space is limited, and many models have wheels for easy repositioning around the kitchen. Vertical stands have a small footprint and may include a hutch with a dedicated microwave compartment and a rear cutout for the device's plug. Stands often have additional storage, such as cabinets, drawers or shelves, above or below the microwave area, providing multifunctional space for cooking tools, containers, cookbooks and other kitchen accessories.
Metal carts with open shelving are usually among the least expensive storage furnishings, while decorative features, such as glass cabinet doors or marble tabletops, contribute to higher pricing. Other low-cost options include small multitier stands or products made from composite wood. High-end microwave cabinets are often made from hardwood, and one unit may include multiple types of specialty storage, such as built-in spice racks and towel bars or hooks.
