An oven cabinet is a design feature that integrates the oven into the kitchen cabinetry. While it can create a cohesive look, it’s important to take necessary precautions and hire a professional to ensure safety. The specific considerations for each situation will vary, but there are some universal concerns to keep in mind. The manufacturer’s guide should be consulted to determine the appropriate thickness of shielding and wood for the enclosure. Since ovens are typically used less frequently than other cooking tools, placement outside the work triangle may be appropriate. While aligning the oven cabinet with a tall cabinet or appliance can look attractive, the height of the cabinet must be considered for safe removal, which may limit its location.
