36" enough between wall ovens and peninsula?
I've read that the minimum distance between wall oven and another counter/cabinet area should be 3 1/2 feet. I knew ours was going to be tight, and a bit under that, but when the KD came out yesterday to do a final measurement before ordering, I realized that the peninsula run had grown 3 inches, ending directly across from the double wall ovens, with a 36" walkway between the two. My husband thinks this will be fine; I'm not so sure.
This peninsula run can't be shortened without doing major reconfiguration of the whole L shaped work area - moving a dishwasher off the peninsula, shrinking the cooktop size, rehoming the microwave, etc. The cabinet order was due to go in yesterday, but the KD is holding off, wanting us to be happy. However, the contractor, with whom we've signed a contact and put down a deposit, has an expected start date. In other words, we don't have a lot of time to rework an entirely new plan. We were considering moving a doorway and turning our little kitchen into a galley, but that would put the fridge and wall ovens next to each other, with a 3" filler, and may or may not negate the fridge warranty - and I'm not sure I like it workspace wise.
Help - is 36" enough room the way it's drawn? Thanks!
