Get rid of wall oven to increase counter space?
I've read so much on here over the past few months, had a difficult time registering but finally did and now I have a question.
We have a wall oven on one side of the kitchen, and the cooktop on the other. I was thinking that to increase counter space, I could get rid of the wall oven and just put a free standing range where the cooktop is. This would break up that long bank of cabinets, and I have the range hood there.
Now the question is, where do I stop? The cabinets are in good shape. I don't think I need an overhaul. But then I look at all the beautiful kitchens here, and well, I don't know. I do want quartz counter and probably a cast Iron sink (or the silgranite, whatever goes well with the counter) and just want to tidy up the whole thing.
I don't want to do a mini facelift when maybe in a few years I'd want to gut the thing. Overall I'm happy with the layout, except the stove is so far away from the sink. I do like the corner pantry, even though I hear they are space hogs.
I have no room for the island I'd love to have, and I'm not tearing down walls.
If you could give me some advice on what would look good, should I wait, anything is appreciated.
