answer 1
it's made of pressed particle board and while it's not real wood, it's still heavy although I can move it around. It isn't sturdy unless you purchase L-shaped brackets to keep it from swaying to the side as it's narrow and top heavy.

Yes but when you open the doors, you need additional space to allow for the doors to swing open and the handles are there also. In other words, if you only had a space 21.31" wide you would not be able to fully open the doors. My estimate is you need about a 24" space.

There are 4 useable shelves. The middle & bottom shelves are 'fixed' shelves and it comes with two adjustable shelves. There are 3 sets of pre-drilled holes for the brackets you put in to support the adjustable shelves in both the upper & lower part of the cabinet (3 in each section) - this give you the option of placing the shelves at different heights. You can order additional shelves & shelf support brackets from the manufacturer though, so you could have more, but the way the holes are set, if you put in 2, the adjustable shelves would only be a max of about 5" apart.

Question

will this cabinet hold a microwave

asked 1 year, 3 months ago
By
ruby
on Mainstays Storage Cabinet, Multiple Finishes
11 answers
Answers
answer 1
It depends on the size of your microwave ... the interior fixed shelf in the middle is 20"W by 15" D. The weight load for that shelf is 50#, so a small one would probably fit. You'd just need to make sure it's a size that you'd have enough space around it to have air circulation, otherwise the heat that's generated will damage the microwave. Another thought to consider .... having it inside the cabinet might eventually cause the wood to warp or the interior finish to peal too because of the moisture that's created when you cook.... I don't KNOW that, but it seems reasonable that that might happen.

I think it can hold a small microwave as long as you be sure to anchor it to the wall properly. I would buy another bracket and add it as a little extra security. But it is pretty sturdy all it's own once you use the anchor provided.

question on measurements

The measurements state "Mainstays Storage Cabinet dimensions: 21.31"L x 15.44"W x 59.88"H" - I am assuming that the 21.31"L is really the width and that the 15.44"W is the depth - this is all based on the picture.
Looks like a great product and the reviews support that.
