I'm trying to decide where to put our microwave in our new house. The builders have placed it under the island bench beside the dishwasher but I'm not sure if I like it there as I won't be able to see in without bending down. I've thought of putting it above the opposite bench and losing cupboard space but I'm unsure of that as I don't want to lose cupboard space. My last option was to put it in the walk-in pantry as it's quite spacious but I'm not sure how this will work, has anyone done this before and is it easy to work with going in and out of the pantry to use the microwave. Would love to hear your thoughts and see any pictures.
Thanks in advance.

We've put ours in the pantry - which is not huge - opposite the pantry door, with the microwave door swinging the right way. (Why don't microwave doors have the option of swinging the other way?). If it's below the bench, I can't read the panel. I didn't want to waste bench space. Friends have theirs across the family room in the laundry! Inlaws had theirs across the hall in the study! Use the island bench space for drawers.

In the pantry or below bench.
95% of all ovens are now fitted below bench and no one complains about not being able to see into them so it shouldnt be a problem with the microwave either.
I personally hate seeing a microwave above bench in overheads. They look terriable.
