There are seemingly endless ways you can add new features and appliances to your kitchen. Beyond living rooms and guest rooms, the kitchen is the highest trafficked area in a home, so understandably you’ll want that room to leave the best impression. One of the fastest ways to do this is by getting new appliances while remodeling your kitchen. In this piece, we’ll be going over how to choose a double oven and how they can be an eye catching centerpiece to any kitchen.
Why Choose a Double Oven?
Unlike single ovens, double ovens allow you more versatility and functionality while cooking. Additionally, double ovens tend to be smaller per unit than conventional single ovens, so it takes less time for them to heat up. Double ovens also come in many styles for installation whether it’s a built under the countertop, built in a tall oven cabinet, or free standing.
Narrowing Your Choice
To help you make a decision in any remodeling process, it’s always helpful to think about what the implications each design piece has on the overall remodel.
In the case of a double oven, consider the following:
- Energy Source of the Double Oven
- Styling of the Double Oven
- Volume and Shared Size of the Double Oven
For energy, double ovens come in the same two types as conventional ovens: electric or gas. Consider that if your house doesn’t already have a gas line or you haven’t already accounted for installing a gas line in your remodeling project – it can be a fairly expensive installation. Gas double ovens tend to be more energy efficient and allow more savings in the long run. At the same time, many people find that electric double ovens take less time to preheat compared to gas ovens, and that they also tend to cook more evenly than gas ovens.
Remember that double ovens are installed in wall units, in islands, or potentially as free standing appliances. This will be important to consider in your remodeling project in terms of the scope of what you will change in your kitchen and where those changes will need to be made.
Lastly, you need to consider the size of your space and how much you want to devote to the double oven. Many double ovens have a larger unit beneath and a smaller unit on top, although most double ovens come in the same size.
