appliance placement-edgewood cabinetry

Renovating the heart of a home involves more than just ordering Edgewood Custom Cabinetry.

There’s also the issue of kitchen appliance placement. At one time, there weren’t a lot of appliance styles and dimensions to choose from but that’s no longer true. Doubters need only look at the sheer number of stoves on the market today to see that we’re correct.

For starters, options include dual-fuel and single fuel ranges. As such, the hook-up type will obviously impact where the range may go. Consumers must also be mindful of the range’s dimensions and whether or not the model is meant to be built-in or vented. Of those considerations, the dimensions are exceptionally important to note. Why? It’s because some units may need 36 inches or more in width and a height clearance of 47 inches.

Accordingly, they can take up a lot of space, which may make them unsuitable for certain kitchens. The list of potentially problematic, design situations includes but isn’t limited to small homes with a single wall, island, U-shaped, G-shaped, L-shaped or galley kitchens. Although all of the kitchen types we mentioned can clearly accommodate ranges, consumers may need to forgo the classic work triangle layout or downsize the kitchen appliances to fit the space.

No matter which kitchen appliance placement options consumers choose, our Edgewood Custom Cabinetry team can help ensure that every inch of remaining wall space is put to excellent use. Also, we can do the same for homes designed to have kitchen islands or open floor plans. So there is never any fear of wasted storage space. In addition, we can match the cabinetry with the rest of the kitchen’s design elements.
