Bluestar rangetop: Space behind drawers below
I am considering changing my planned Bluestar range to a rangetop, which means a cabinet change as well. We are in the process of finalizing our cabinet order. This is for a new build and cabinets are custom.
The cabinet guy says he typically leaves 6 inches behind drawers under a rangetop to accommodate gas lines, etc. I don't want to have any more dead space than necessary behind the drawers under the rangetop as I would rather have any extra space IN the drawers. The gas line is not very big, and it's agains the wall. The electrical outlet is just off of the floor where it needed to be for a range installation. Is there something going on back there that requires 6" of space that I'm not thinking of? I'm sure he will listen when I talk, but I don't want to talk him into a bad idea. Also don't want to sacrifice drawer depth/space because of what is typically done in other applications.
