Want to make more room in your kitchen? **Find a good place** for small countertop appliances. Tucking away a microwave or toaster oven helps **save that precious counter space**. It’s like magic—more space without much effort!

I already wrote about one option, which is to mount the oven on a rack on the wall, but sometimes you might not want that.

The choice is scarce, but after a bit of research I can recommend two options based on your preferences.

Crammed Countertop

Countertop Microwave Stand

No products found.

If you’re looking to organize your counter a bit without buying extra furniture, then this one is the clear choice.

You can adjust the width of the stand to accomodate most microwaves or toaster ovens save the largest ones.

The narrowest setup is 15.7″ and widest is 23.6″.

Of course, if you don’t have both a microwave and a toaster oven, you can fit anything on it, be it spices, toasters or anything else, and it looks pretty good.

The colors are black or white and it comes with hooks on the side to hang some extra stuff.

Standalone Microwave Stand

No products found.

This is by far the best-rated choice if you’re looking for a freestanding kitchen island.

It’s versatile and good-looking, with three color options that I’m sure will fit any kitchen.

It’s very easy to assemble and is pretty compact, so it will fit even the smallest kitchens (the dimensions are 35.5″ by 15.75″ by 52″).

The feet are adjustable and you get 10 hooks on the side and a slide-out tray.

But the biggest reason I chose this particular rack is because it has a designated fourth tier for your microwave.

It looks very good.
