Kitchen Decisions | Standard Range or Wall Oven


Are you jumping into a kitchen remodel? Your kitchen appliances are often the most used items in your kitchen, and typically require the biggest investment. Choosing the perfect appliances to match both your style and preferred function are important. When selecting your oven/stove it is important to think about how much you plan on using it, your cooking needs, and your kitchen’s physical constraints. We found an article in a recent issue of HGTV Magazine where they asked professional, Christina El Moussa, her opinion on either choosing a standard range or wall oven. Also, a poll taken from HGTV readers read: 70% chose a wall oven, and 30% chose a standard range.

Kitchen Decisions from the Professionals

Christina El Moussa, from Flip or Flop, stated that:

“If you have the space for a wall oven, go for it. Cooking is so much more back-friendly when you’re not bending over to baste, check, or flip food in the oven.”

We agree with Christina El Moussa, if you’re cooking often in your kitchen, keeping your back in mind is smart, in the long run. If you have the flexibility in your space and if you use your cooking appliances often, go for a wall oven. Keep in mind though you might be loosing counterspace that the wall oven might take. Also, a range will consume a potential space for a base cabinet. In the end it’s all about your cooking habits that will impact your appliance choice.
