I have a "garage" and if I could put it in it would be very difficult to do so. I placed mine on the counter on top of a cotton placemat so I can slide it out of the corner easily. It is heavy enough that you won't want to move it around, lift it, etc. Well maybe if you in your twenties it would be easy....If you have a pull out shelf in a cabinet that might work too. My cabinet space is limited so I prefer not to use one for the mixer. It is a wonderful machine.
