If you have read my blog lately, you know that we are fully renovating our kitchen. The layout is almost complete and we are about the order the cabinets…that is – after I can commit to the sizes of the appliances.
As you can see, we currently have a wall oven (that we never even changed to stainless steel when we replaced the rest of the old appliances years ago.)
This time around I am going totally different…Instead of the practical wall ovens, I am going with this:
Yes, a 48 inch dual fuel range. Sure I will have to bend over to use the ovens. Sure I have a bad back so this is probably not the most practical choice for me…but I just love the way this is going to look with a range hood something like this…
And my cabinets will be white too so this gives you a good idea of how my kitchen could look. I love it so much even though the practical side of me tells me to well…be practical!
And technically I am being practical because even though I would have loved to buy the expensive Wolf range or even the Thermador, I went with the Jenn Air. Sure, it might not be as “flashy” as the other two brands, but Jenn Air is a great brand and I am happy with my choice. As with many appliance deals, I get a free dishwasher with the purchase of the range.
We are not buying a new refrigerator because ours in in good shape and since it’s counter-depth, it should look ok with the new cabinets.
I would have loved to buy a built-in refrigerator but if I am splurging on this crazy stove, I really cannot convince my husband we need a new fridge too. The microwave will be a Jenn Air and we are still deciding on the placement of that before the cabinets are ordered.
So, I guess you could say, I am making progress. I cannot believe how many decisions there are to make!
What kind of ovens do you have – wall or range?
