Is there anything that functions like an appliance garage that you can buy without altering your existing cabinets? I'm looking for one to house my toaster and toaster oven more attractively.

I have the opposite problem, LOL!  I have an appliance garage that I hate, since I tend to just shove things in there to get them out of sight.  And we have limited counter space, which it hogs.  Should I send it to you when I rip it out??  lol.gif

I haven't seen anything like that. But what about sewing up some cute fabric covers? I sewed up a simple box cover for my sewing machine since it sits out on a work desk in our living room. Or if you don't sew, I bet you could buy one on Etsy or something.

I have a fabric cover over my toaster.


My Mom and my best friend both keep their toasters in a cupboard - Mom does it because she doesn't like clutter; friend does it because her counter space is at a premium.

If the chips are down, the buffalo is empty.

I cleared out a cupboard and use that.  Keeps the counter free and clear and my kitchen tidier.  


When I was a kid, we had a breadbox that we kept the toaster in.  Bread was kept in the fridge and the toaster in the breadbox.  It was a quirky arrangement, but worked just fine.
