The Benefits of a Built-In Oven

Here at PS Contracts, we believe that the perfect kitchen design should provide homeowners with a practical set-up that is both affordable and aesthetically pleasing. After all, the average kitchen renovation costs around £8000 according to statistics, particularly if gas and water pipes have to be redirected. A built-in oven is one of the most popular kitchen installations on the market and in this blog, we’ve decided to go over why. Read on to find out more….


Since most free-standing ovens can vary in size and tend to be rather bulky, one of the most apparent benefits of a built-in alternative is the aesthetical value. After all, the oven and the hob are fitted directly into the workspace of a kitchen in order to ensure that the design remains uniform, removes any gaps between contrasting appliances and allows homeowners to navigate the space more efficiently.


A built-in oven provides homeowners will more choice when it comes to the location of their cooking hotspot. After all, such an investment often involves re-installing the gas or electricity supply, allowing clients to install their oven at waist height. This means that the days of leaning over to open and close the doors will be long-replaced, and children will be more protected from the dangers of an active and hot oven.


Whilst it isn’t uncommon for homeowners to install a built-in oven appliance in a completely different area of their kitchen, this can increase the cost of a renovation considerably. With this said, it is completely acceptable to invest in a new worktop and cabinet layout in order to replace an existing free-standing oven in the exact same area. As a result, a built-in oven can be incredibly affordable for clients on the tightest of budgets.

When it comes to the kitchen, many property owners tend to put a lot of time and effort into the planning phase in order to ensure that the finished product brings their vision to life. With this said, a functional kitchen doesn’t have to sacrifice its aesthetical design, and that is why many of our clients are choosing to implement built-in appliances like ovens.
