Do you like friends? Or time? How about eating things? If you answered yes to at least one of those questions, chances are that you’ve already picked out your double oven. Now, you just need a double oven cabinet.
The prospect of installing a double oven cabinet (not to mention a double oven) can seem intimidating and confusing, especially if you’ve never had it done before. Are the benefits worth the investment? How much space needs to be available? Should it go flush against a wall or should it be set in a corner? If you read on, these pieces will start to come together inside your head, so that we can make them come together outside your head later on.
Benefits of a Double Oven Cabinet
Out of all the benefits of a double oven cabinet, one stands out above all the others: you can put two ovens in it.
The thing about that is you can cook fish and cookies at the same time without having to mix them together. The reduced preheating time alone is a game-changing payoff. Imagine being able to enjoy your cooking the same way your friends and family do–sitting comfortably at a table, with uninterrupted conversation–instead of having to get up and down all night to make sure everything goes in and comes out of the oven at the right times.
Double Oven Cabinet Dimensions
Most ovens–double ovens included–are 30” wide. Some are 27” though, and others are 24”. Now, it’s important not to overthink this part–your double oven cabinet dimensions are going to be determined by your double oven’s dimensions.
This double oven cabinet, for example, is 30” wide–but that’s because it’s for a 27” double oven. Likewise, your double oven cabinet’s dimensions will definitely have to be a bit wider than your double oven, mostly so the double oven can fit inside its cabinet.
Your installation contractor can help you decide where you want your double oven cabinet and what dimensions will be best for your setup. Some places will be more feasible than others, especially if you’re working with a preexisting kitchen instead of starting from scratch.
Double Oven Corner Cabinet
A double oven corner cabinet is a beautiful option when the setup of the kitchen makes it possible. The oven is usually the visual focal point of the kitchen already–but with a double oven corner cabinet, you have an even more powerful aesthetic anchor. “Come,” it whispers, “Let me warm something for you. Some brownies? A nice roast duck? Simultaneously… and separately, if you like?”
