This oven in island kitchen has a wall oven tucked into the end — an usual oven placement.
Installing a single oven into the end of a 6-1/2-foot by 3-foot island was a pragmatic move. Lacking wall space in this black and white Long Island beach house kitchen, the oven is outside the work zone but near the refrigerator. That placement solves a problem. The one unbroken wall in the kitchen is needed for a range top, which sits over a double-door cabinet with handy open storage in base cabinets on both sides. A range oven there would block the aisle. Plus, the rangetop is gas while the oven is electric, which many cooks prefer. Over the range top is a subway tile back splash, grouted with gray that goes to the ceiling behind the vent hood. The backsplash extends to the end of the counter run as well.
Two different stones are used for counters: black on the range wall and limestone on the island and around the sink. Space above the sink is decorated with framed pictures. An adjustable, swing-away wall- mounted lamp makes a practical, adjustable fixture. There is open storage with pull-out baskets in base cabinets to the right of the dishwasher as well.
