Gap under a new wall oven - filling the gap advice from TrimKits USA

All new wall ovens are shorter in height than older wall ovens

If your recently had a replacement wall oven installed , here’s some guidance on how to fill the gap at the bottom.

  • If you put a wood filler strip it will not look good, period, and will stick out like a sore thumb

  • Matching the cabinetry color is a big problem and is not cost effective, you'll never match the cabinet color perfectly, and even one color shade off looks terrible, don't even try it, just use a stainless steel wall oven filler strip

  • A stainless steel wall oven filler strip looks like it’s part of the wall oven and is by far the best option

The kitchen features that add the most value to your home

TrimKits USA world's best trim kits apply to all of the below, they are a key part of the integration of the kitchen, can fit more cabinet styles than any other trim kit, and have the style and design to put your appliances over the top

Kitchens on Top -

  • Kitchens are the most important selling point for homebuyers, according to Realtor.com, and homes listed with “luxury kitchens” sell faster and command a higher selling price than similar-sized homes in the same ZIP code.
  • It’s no wonder then that interior designers find the greatest demand for their services in remodeling kitchens. Some 80 percent of home remodeling projects take place in the kitchen, according to the National Association of Home Builder’s Remodeling Market Index Survey. 
  • “The ultimate design statement of the home starts in the kitchen,” said Dallas-based interior designer Denise MaGaha. “With the trend toward open floor plans, the kitchen sets the stage for all the other design decisions in the home.”
  • The kitchen’s importance to the homeowner is second to none, and so it is of critical importance to the interior design trade as well. Here are some emerging trends focused on the three essential design elements for the modern kitchen – cabinetry, appliances and plumbing fixtures

Cabinet Choices -

  • Cabinets represent the grounding element in the luxury kitchen, as all the other elements are mounted on them or placed within them. What’s more, they set the design style for the kitchen.
  • “Today, we see transitional and modern style with strong architectural references increasingly popular,” explained Jason Artus, AKBD, vice president of sales and marketing for Rutt Handcrafted Cabinetry. “European-style, frameless-constructed cabinets are growing in demand.”
  • Frameless cabinets allow for additional storage with wider drawers and pullouts because they do not have a face frame attached to the front of the cabinet box and no center stile coming down the middle of two cabinet doors. Frameless cabinets give a sleek, simple aesthetic that provides easier access to the items inside.

Chef-Quality Appliances

  • While cabinetry provides the modern kitchen’s form, the appliances provide its function. Selecting appliance brands that serve their function in style and are ahead of the curve in innovation is key. Style and design puts a brand over the top.

LG Study Shows How Consumers Define Luxury in the Modern Age

A recent survey identifies the reasons why people buy luxury goods and the terms which convey that value.

By Peter Roesler

Published on December 11, 2017

A recent study by LG examined what factors led consumers to believe that a certain product was a "luxury" good.

LG Electronics recently conducted a survey of more than 1,000 households with incomes greater than $100,000 to find out what drove them to buy luxury items as well as the things they look for in determining what is luxury.

A key take away from the study is identifying the reasons why people buy luxury products. While people may often assume it's because luxury products are higher-quality, but that's not the only factor.

  • For example, 46 percent of luxury Millennial consumers reported that they felt "superior" when purchasing luxury products.


  • Now, more than ever before, luxury-identifying Americans value home kitchen appliances as a top category for creating a luxurious and sophisticated home environment.


  • According to the LG SIGNATURE Modern Luxury Survey, tens of millions of affluent Americans most closely associate luxury with terms like "high quality" (47 percent), "expensive" (47 percent) and "exclusive" (42 percent).

If you're considering a black stainless trim kit, watch this video on Scratching Black Stainless Steel Appliances


Black stainless steel appliances can be scratched a bit easier than you might think. But what does it look like when that happens? We test the durability of black stainless steel refrigerators. We demonstrate what happens when you scratch black stainless Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Samsung, LG and Frigidaire refrigerators with a fork. When you dig into the finish on the exterior of the appliance you will scratch away the semi-opaque black oxide coating to reveal the silver stainless steel underneath. Scratching black stainless is something that can happen very easily because the kitchen is a workspace. So what does it look like when that does happen? Watch the video and find out.

TrimKits USA wall oven filler strips are custom made for your cabinetry

Our handcrafted, custom made wall oven filler strips are made with the highest grade of (304) stainless steel, will seamlessly integrate with your wall oven, our wall oven filler strips are also the same depth as your wall oven door, not a flat piece of brushed aluminum with a serrated front that has a totally different finish and look than your wall oven, is not flush with your wall oven (leaving a three dimensional look), and puts screw holes into your beautiful cabinets.

There are MANY advantages to TrimKits USA wall oven filler strips:

  • other wall oven filler strips only come in specific height measurements which 99.9% of the time is not the height you need
  • TrimKits USA custom manufactures your wall oven filler strip specifically for your cabinet opening height
  • TrimKits USA also manufactures your wall oven filler strip to match the depth of your wall oven so it looks like it's part of the wall oven from the factory, not like an afterthought "add-on" piece that doesn't match your wall oven finish or depth
  • we also custom manufacture a magnetic mounting bracket that mounts behind the filler strip so there are no screw holes and screws that do not look good and are hard to clean

There are MANY critical differences in various trim kits for microwave ovens, microwave drawers, coffee makers, speed/steam ovens, and wall oven filler strips.

The concept is to seamlessly integrate your appliance and kitchen, which you simply can not achieve with a Micro-Trim, find out why:

See what customers have to say on Yelp regarding their experiences with Micro-Trim products:

  • 1/5/2017 - R C., Norco, CA

    Sorry guys but your product is junk. Side pieces have a different texture than the upper and lower pieces AND when we called back to let you know it was damaged you told us we had it on backwards. Your instructions are a joke and that is a direct result in POOR illustration for install. Here's a great idea, put a damn sticker that says"F" for front and "B" for back. That way we only have to do this once. We are not professionals by any means and it needs to be user friendly. Not happy at all. P.S. Where is the zero star?

  • 9/26/16 - Linda W, St Charles, IL

    The side pieces do not match the top and bottom at all. This is aluminum not stainless and the graining on sides is vertical while graining top and bottom is horizontal. Makes the color WAY off. Unfortunately, no microwave trim kits fit our opening so this is our last resort. I would not recommend unless you are really in a bind.

  • 3/4/2016 - Peter R.,  Dallas, TX

    Absolute junk. This thing is a joke. There's is no way to construct it and mount it on your cabinets, because it's only held together with 4 screws on the cabinets. It fits together like a jigsaw puzzle and it's up to you to figure out how to use your 8 arms like an octopus to mount the thing. Besides the fact that it's a cheaply finished piece of aluminum, not stainless steel like it was represented to be. Buyer beware.

  • 11/10/2010 - Ryan D., San Rafael, CA

    First time poster to Yelp and felt compelled to post after my experience.  For the same money, I could have gotten the OEM trim for the microwave. which is all steel, easy to install and looks much cleaner.  Needless to say, I orded the OEM trim today and I'm throwing this in the trash.

    I received my trim and spent a couple hours trying to install- I don't recommend and here's what I learned in the process:

  1. The supports for the microwave are plastic and flimsy and require 4 screws each (8 in total) in order to secure and make it sturdy enough for the microwave.  The OEM version only requires 3 screws and is all steel.
  2. The installation is a total pain- you'll fumble around and drill countless holes and have to pull the microwave in an out each time in order to get it flush with the cabinet.  Total waste of time and effort as well as the frustration that goes along with.
  3. The final product looks crappy compared to the OEM version.  The face of the Micro-Trim is four separate pieces.  The OEM version is a single, seamless and smooth cover that sits around the microwave.
