The Best Of Both Worlds: Built In And A Range Cooker?

When it comes to the look and style of your kitchen, you want your appliances to act as design features as well as cooking equipment.

A built-in appliance can be placed high or low, even at eye-level for ease of use. A range cooker comes with the hob and other functions already included, however these can be bought separately if desired but to match perfectly to your built-in appliances. Both are a great choice, and can be even better when implemented together within your space.

Depending on your design preferences, the layout of your kitchen or how much cooking you intend to do, both built in appliances and range cookers have their pros and cons. They can work perfectly on their own but here’s how you can match both together within your kitchen…
