If you’re building a new kitchen or renovating an old one, have you considered installing a wall oven? Here are four sound reasons why it’s a good move.
If you’re building a new kitchen, or renovating an old one, you might want to consider installing a wall oven. There are many advantages to wall ovens, both practical and aesthetic. As such, here are four sound reasons a wall oven is a good idea:
1. You don’t need to bend down as much
Wall ovens are typically placed at eye or waist level. This is extremely practical and can save you from bending down every time you want to take something out or put something in.
If you make roasts or other heavy dishes on a regularly basis, you know that putting them in the oven and taking them out is no easy task. Not only do you risk dropping the dish if you have to bend down significantly, but you also risk pulling your back. A wall oven would allow you to use your oven more easily.
2. You can get a separate cooktop
A wall oven gives you the option of getting whatever kind and size of cooktop you want.
Maybe you want a gas stovetop, or induction heat elements. Perhaps you want a cooktop with six burners or another non-standard size.
If your cooktop is separate from your oven, you have the flexibility to get the kind you want.
3. You can have two wall ovens and they’ll look great together
If having two walls oven isn’t something that you have considered, you really should.
If you do a lot of baking and cooking and enjoy having people over for dinner parties, having two ovens means you can cook two things at once, at different temperatures.
If you want two ovens in your kitchen, you should definitely go for two wall ovens. Two wall ovens either one on top of the other, or at the same level strategically placed in the room is a great look for your new kitchen.
4. They give your kitchen a more integrated look
You know the feeling of walking into a space and thinking it doesn’t make sense where things are located? That’s because it probably wasn’t planned out very well.
If you’re renovating your kitchen, it’s a good idea to plan for an integrated wall oven—not just because it’s more practical (see reasons 1 to 3 above), but also because it simply looks better in a kitchen and occupies the space more efficiently.
If you’re building a new kitchen or revitalizing one that has seen better day, working a wall oven into your plans is not necessarily more expensive. It will not only improve the overall look of your space, but add to the functionality of your kitchen.
