Okay to put stove here near sink?


Right now we are thinking of putting the stove and sink near each other at the corner. Would this be okay? The kitchen is small, we can't think of a better arrangement. This is a gas stove with no electrical outlets.
I'm wondering if it would look odd, be inconveniant in some way, or if it would hurt the resale value of the house. I'm pretty sure it is safe enough.

The only issue I can see is burning yourself while doing dishes if someone opens the door. Also when you put your fridge close can you open both doors at same time?

Corner cabinets are awkward at best. What type of cabinet access would you use for that bottom corner? Or would it be totally wasted space?

If you do that you're not only making a "blind corner" meaning that you won't be able to access any of that space under the counter, but you won't really be able to use the counter that effectively, either. Ideally the "work triangle" in a kitchen has the sink between the fridge and the stove on the theory that food comes out of the fridge, gets prepared with the aid of the sink, and then moves onto the stove. With no room between your sink and stove you're making that workflow sort of difficult. I would consider other options if possible. Corner sinks can be very useable, if that helps you in some way.

If at all possible, I would bump the stove a foot to the left. This would give you a little clearance for the oven door, as well as a slim cabinet for baking sheets, and some extra counter top...

The stove should be centered on the wall that it is being installed on. Meaning, measure from the wall on the right, deduct 24" and then measure to the left of the wall that the stove is on. Be sure to deduct between 3 to 5" for the casing or the end of the wall. The lower cabinets on the left side of the stove should be equal to the ones on the right side of the stove. Hope that helps.

I'd post the entire floor plan and floor diminsions for a proper response.

Here is the entire plan. The sink and dishwasher cannot be moved, they almost completely fill one side. So there is no room for corner cabinets, they require at least 6" of additional space each, which does not exist. The washer/dryer cabinet fills most of one wall.
The peninsula consists of more cabinets, there is no wall there.
It might be possible to surround the stove with 18" and 12" cabinets.
The arrangement is not satisfactory, but we cannot figure out a better way to do it.

Two things you could do:

Just swap the stove with the 30" cabinet that's next to it - this gives you a blind-corner, there - and you can use a lazy-susan to make it more accessible. If you'd like.

Or - center the stove - that would give you 15" on the left and 15" on the right - with a lazy-susan in the corner.

First thing I see is a large sink cabinet. When I design kitchens, I keep the sink cabinet to a minimum as they are a waste of space underneath.

I agree with that - My sink is 33" wide surface mount leaving the opening underneath only requiring 32" - and when I built my cabinet that's all that poor sucker got.

That is a good idea....

And yes....really need more dimensions.....it looks like a tight space....

The only issue with the stove next to the fridge is that it does not give you a lot of room for large pots.

Just a thought.......just throwing this out as an odd suggestion.....

Can you put the stove where the pennisula is? Or, put the sink there?

The room is 123" (stove side) by 109.5" (sink side)
We don't like the 36" sink cabinet. But can you put a 33" sink on a 30" cabinet? We want a standard sized sink.
The peninsula orginally had the fourth wall behind it, they cut a lot of the wall out to make the kitchen open to the dining room.
We are considering putting stove on the peninsula, that is where it used to be orginally. But wife wants a zephyr stove fan, which requires 7 inch pipe I would have to run across the ceiling. I am not sure there is enough space inside the ceiling to fit a 7 inch duct, also it would mean tearing out the ceiling, and then repairing the joints smooth, more work.
