Why Built-in Ovens?
If you’re thinking about renovating or building a new kitchen, you’re going to need to think about what kind of oven you want. Whilst a range might seem easier to incorporate, and require less planning at this stage, a little bit of thought being put into your decision will result in a kitchen that is practical and visually appealing.
While in theory you can put a range anywhere there is space and access to power, in terms of practicality, a wall oven can often be a more elegant solution. As well as having flexibility in terms of height (great if you’re very tall/short or have a bad back) it can also help spread out cooking focus points in your kitchen, which can be very practical if you often have more than one pair of hands cooking.
Minimal Space Invasion
If floor space is at a premium in your kitchen area, the last thing you’re going to want is a chunky appliance dominating the area. Incorporating a wall oven into your kitchen can also allow you to keep your kitchen area more open, without compromising on cooking space.
If you like the setup of a range, but would rather have a bit of extra floor space in your kitchen, you can combine a cooktop with a built in wall oven underneath – this will leave you with counter space right up to the cooktop, rather than having gaps around your oven as with traditional ranges. The ability to split up the cooktop and oven sections of a range allows you to custom design your kitchen to your exact needs.
