Filling a gap inbetween stove and sidewall


Hi all


I have a 7" space between my stove and my side wall that I would like to do something with. I searched online, but all I came up with are solutions for small gaps. Then I though I would have a piece of wood cut, then it was thinking - stove... wood... no.


I remember a while back seeing some commercial for something like this, but have no idea when nor what.


Anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance.

Picture of what your dealing with would be a huge help.
As Neal said any gas or electric stove I've seen has 0 clearance on the sides.
7' is a huge gap, something like Neal suggested or even a spice rack may fit.

So here it is:


It's 7" from stove to wall on the top, but 4" on the bottom due to the baseboard heater.


Thanks!

So you would just need not much more than the counter top.

In fact, anything much more would block the heating!

It would be best if any "counter top" matched whatever is on the other side, at least to some extent.
May we please have a photo of what is on the right of the stove?

Whoever designed and laid out that kitchen should get two minutes in the penalty box, especially with the baseboard heater in there.

I would probably mount cleats to the back wall and side wall and install a piece of countertop as a "wing" to the stove.

Re: Filling a gap inbetween stove and sidewall


The other side is below.


Countertop - really? How would I install that? And I guess I would have to have it cut down to size?


Now worried about matching to what's there exactly - close would be nice, tho.


Thanks!

Re: Filling a gap inbetween stove and sidewall


Just checking online...


https://www.lowes.com/pd/VT-Dimensio...ertop/50240963


I could get something like that - it's not an exact match, but to me, b/c it's not next to the existing c.top, that falls under the category of close enough.


But again, cutting it down is an issue; I have no means to do that, and I am pretty sure Lowes won't.


Then - installation.... how?


Thanks.

Your best bet is to find a company that builds and installs cupboard.
That will just be remnant to them. Take that picture and measurement to them and they can whip up what you need.
Lowes or Home Depot can do the same for just more money.

So, if I search for cupboard manufacturer, I am getting weird results, that wont help.


Is there a good search term to use here?


Thanks again.
