Kitchen Design Trends: Wall Oven or Range?

Posted by Penny Hull on Tue, Aug 09, 2011 @ 08:08 AM

Appliance Choices: Are more homebuyers choosing a wall oven and cooktop over a traditional range?

Raleigh kitchen design trends show an increased interest in creating a "modular kitchen" by adding a separate wall oven and cooktop, rather than an integrated range.

While a separate wall oven and cooktop can be more expensive than a traditional cook range, the benefits are appealing to many homebuyers.

What are the benefits of a wall oven?

Double Wall Oven

  • Multiple cooking workstations in your kitchen, between the oven and the cooktop
  • Double wall ovens offer twice the capacity without taking up too much additional space
  • Higher wall mountings can eliminate the need to bend over the oven 

Wall ovens are generally electric rather than gas, and come in a width of 24, 27, or 30 inches.

Double wall ovens are very popular in Raleigh new home kitchens, as many homebuyers are looking for space maximization. Double wall ovens can be ideal for large dinner parties, holidays, or occations that require several different dishes (such as a roast and baked good) to be cooked at the same time.
