Find the Right Oven Arrangement for Your Kitchen

In the timeless stove setup, the cooktop and oven are combined as a single appliance, most frequently a 30-inch appliance with four beers over an oven. The concept of being able to have a separate wall mount (or two!) Is pretty exciting for many home cooks considering a kitchen remodel.

Are you currently considering new cooking appliances? Maybe not everybody’s dream setup will work in their kitchen, and some appliance configurations function better than others in a specific space. Check out the options here.

Double oven. Ovens separate from the cooktop offer homeowners more flexibility with their design. Also, a lot of men and women prefer elevated ovens rather than having to bend down to use a stove. It is definitely better in your spine! If you have room with this arrangement and can get a place for your microwave, then this is a great setup. In a kitchen in this way, a microwave drawer hidden on the back of the island is a great alternative. The main sink in the island allows for the sleek electric cooktop to be located on the back wall.

Variations: Double ovens normally come in 24-, 27- and 30-inch widths; the entire heights vary.

Stacked double oven. This is the most recognizable setup, and most producers take variations of this appliance. Most cupboard manufacturers also supply conventional stainless oven cabinets for this kind of appliance. The double oven unit often includes one or two drawers under; the appliance is roughly 10 to 16 inches or so off the ground, including the toe-kick space.

Single microwave, oven and warming drawer combo. This arrangement is also pretty typical. It is terrific if you have space for a tall cupboard. (I like it best next to other tall pieces, like a refrigerator pantry, as shown here.) This setup is also a excellent way to earn the space for all three of those appliances. I like to do this with a range so that you get an extra oven. This kitchen shows this choice with a cooktop and a toaster below from the island rather, which makes sense for this kitchen.


Raised side-by-side single ovens. That is an arrangement seen more frequently in modern and modern kitchens. It is possible your cupboard company might offer a single-oven tall cupboard. You can do two of those side by side and make the upper and lower sections a food pantry.

In certain modern kitchen designs you’ll see slightly raised single ovens set side by side, independently or with a warming drawer underneath. This can be used as a design component — it gets you a little elevated, bar-height counter space so that you don’t shed all that into a couple of tall cabinets. In this kitchen the design creates a semiopen space together with the raised ovens; the framing around the refrigerator unit creates a space partition of sorts.

Base only ovens, independently or in tandem. Another arrangement is a separate wall mount or two in base cabinets. Shown here flanking a stove top is a pretty unusual setup. Some may ask why not simply do a 60-inch stove with two full-scale ovens and much more burners? Sure, that could work, however in this instance the homeowner is getting a bit more counter space.

A setup with two single ovens side by side with pedestal cabinets also functions, and it allows you to keep more counter space in addition to compared to having a tall cupboard. Also, some kitchens simply don’t have the space for tall cabinets, which may earn a kitchen feel smaller.

A single wall mount set at a base cupboard under a cooktop is also an alternative, but be cautious — not each combination of this setup works with each manufacturer. You need to make sure that there’s space for the cooktop to match above the oven.
