Large gap beween stove and wall


Just moved into a condo. It has a slide-in electric range. There is a 2-3" gap between the wall and range. I realize I should redo the counter-top so it wraps around the range, but that's not in the budget just yet. Is there a temporary solution? It's going to drive me crazy if anything spills back there while cooking. Plus it just looks funny.

Re: Large gap beween stove and wall


In my house the hard gas line comes through the cabinet and prevents the oven from being pushed back. Is there something behind your unit that prevents pushing it?

Is the gap on the back or on the side of the range ?

Hmm, now that I reread it, maybe the range is against a wall on one side and there's a gap. I thought he meant behind. If that's the case, get a small piece of counter top and build something skinny that it can sit on. Finish the front with something that looks like your cabinets.
