    I enjoyed this article. I am going through a similar process in my first home. As a side note, what microwave did you go with?

    In the UK, I managed to track down this relatively simple model, with only 2 dials. The timer dial is just like the one you proposed. The mirror door is terrible though.

      That functionality looks nice. I bet you could even cut the power knob. I've never adjusted the power on my microwave. Have you?

      I ended up just getting a Frigidaire or whatever. It frustrates me daily, but looks ok. It was the least adorned one I could find that didn't break the bank and sits above the range.

        I think I adjust the power once, to defrost something. But it's quite rare and could potentially be turned into a switch for 'High/Low'. Not sure it needs 6+ power ranges.

        Well, if it's any consolation, I think the your kitchen is looking great! Good luck with the future developments and everything.
