How To Add A Stove Without Changing Your Kitchen

So, you want another oven, but have no space. Changing the configuration of the kitchen costs money...lots of money. Here is a tip for the space challenged. This will be visual. My friend Ha Richmond thinks the blog should be more visual less factual.

Before. I actually like this cooktop. It's a Gaggenau.

Our installer, Rick Robitaille, eliminated the space under the cooktop by adding the wall oven with a stainless steel brace.

How to:

  1. Check the appropriate gas/electric lines. By adding a wall oven, you need 30-50 amps. For gas, you need a new gas line.
  2. Investigate the dimensions of the wall oven and cooktop. Some wall oven are too tall. Ditto with cooktops.
  3. Support the cabinet as picture above and you have yourself more cooking.
