Find the Right Oven Arrangement for Your Kitchen

by Sally Smith on Nov 16, 2014

When you are preparing to remodel your kitchen, you have many options to consider with regards to the oven arrangements. While you may be focused on selecting the right counter tops, flooring and cabinets for your space, the fact is that the oven arrangement may impact your kitchen design and functionality alike. Therefore, you should begin thinking about oven arrangements as early on in the remodeling process as possible. There are several arrangements that you may consider installing in your space, and you can spend time reflecting on the pros and cons of each option to find the best arrangement for your new kitchen space.

A Single Oven and Range Combo

The most common and basic type of oven arrangement that you may find in kitchens is a single oven and range combination. This is a single appliance that has an oven placed on the the floor of the kitchen, typically between two cabinets. It has a range attached to the oven on the top, and this may be a space-saving design suitable for smaller spaces. There typically is a vent hood installed over the range, and this may have a microwave built into it in some cases. These may be the most affordable setups for oven arrangements, but you can find used equipment for an even more affordable price.

A Double Oven

A double oven is another option to consider. Typically, these are installed in higher end kitchens where more space is available. There are two ovens stacked on top of each other, and there may be a pullout drawer for pots, pans or baking sheets below the stacked ovens in some cases. These may provide you with greater cooking space in the ovens, and they may prevent you from having to bend over to use the ovens. When these are installed, a cooktop range may be installed on an island or on a side counter top in the kitchen, and this will be detached from the ovens.

A Double Oven With Other Features

There are some higher end kitchens that may have additional features attached to the double ovens. For example, it is common to find a warming drawer located below the double oven features, and there may be a microwave installed above the double ovens. This essentially creates a tall section of appliances in the kitchen. With this oven arrangement, there is also a cooktop range that is separated from the ovens. In some cases, commercial ovens may be installed for gourmet kitchens or for homes with serious cooks. There is a need for more space in the kitchen for this type of arrangement.

Making a Decision

It is important note that each type of arrangement has unique benefits to the homeowner. For example, the first option saves space and is affordable, and this is particularly true if you use used equipment. The other two types of arrangements, offer greater functionality and more cooking space, but the appliances may cost more. More space may also be needed. Commercial ovens may commonly be used with truly gourmet kitchens.

Consider these points carefully when designing your kitchen layout. Keep in mind your budget, space and functional needs to make the best decision for your home.
