For years, the only option for an oven and stovetop was to have them together in one appliance. This setup is functional enough if you are the sole cook in the home, however, as soon as you add another person to the kitchen it becomes congested and uncomfortable. Luckily, homeowners today have another option to consider- the combination of a cooktop and wall oven. Today, the kitchen remodeling experts at Booher Remodeling Company are discussing why you should consider this option for your Indianapolis kitchen.
Instead of the two-in-one appliance with the oven compartment and cooktop combined into one, the wall oven is its own appliance built into your wall. Typically, wall ovens are installed at eye level, which makes them more convenient especially for those who don’t enjoy bending, kneeling, or crouching to get food in and out of the oven. Often, wall ovens also feature an electric display and control panel, making them easy to use and efficient. You will have no trouble monitoring the settings and temperature, making baking much more enjoyable and convenient.
Because your oven will now be built into your wall, your stovetop can go anywhere you’d like. Some homeowners choose to build a stovetop into their kitchen island so they can easily cook while entertaining guests at the island. While others prefer the stovetop on a different wall, out of the way. However, wherever you decide to place your stovetop, you will now have the option of plenty of storage underneath because that space won’t be taken up by the oven.
Our favorite benefit of choosing to separate the oven and stovetop is the added opportunity for customizing. When you purchase the two-in-one type, there isn’t much room to modify, however, when you separate them you can get exactly what you need. Consider adding a double oven to your wall so you don’t have to wait on the roasted veggies to be done before starting your pie. It’s also generally easier to find a gas stovetop than a gas range, so if you prefer to cook on gas, this might be the way to go!
If you’re looking for ways to add convenience and flexibility to your kitchen, separating your stovetop and oven might just be the way to go. For more kitchen design ideas or to get started on your kitchen remodel, contact Booher Remodeling Company today at (317) 852-5546.
