If you’re remodeling your kitchen, you might be most excited to upgrade that older range and stove that made cooking a little less enjoyable. The final stove and range you pick out will, of course, depend on a lot of different factors, such as the amount of space you have available. But we want to help you make sure you have the right cooking appliance for your home by providing this list of a few things to consider when upgrading your kitchen.
Switching from an electric range to a gas range
This is the number one priority for many homeowners. And rightfully so—electric ranges typically cost more to use and they don’t really heat as evenly, according to most chefs. Make sure you work with qualified contractors who will send certified gas piping specialists to extend the gas lines in your home so that you can use a gas range.
These days, you don’t have to have just one oven. Holiday meals are a whole lot easier with a double oven (two ovens side-by-side) or stacked ovens where a pantry or taller cabinets might normally belong. Keep these at a higher level so that you can easily check on meals and monitor cooking times.
Saving counter space
Today, you don’t have to keep your oven and range together. The oven can stack up in line with your cabinetry, while the stovetop is located somewhere convenient for cooking. Saving counter space is a major reason homeowners decide to remodel their kitchens, but there are skinnier ranges for kitchens of all sizes, or you can fit yours in on the kitchen island. Talk to your contractor to find the right oven and range configuration for your home!
