I am new to this website. I am interested in installing a new kitchen in my house and am doing some research. I have a U shaped kitchen and a country style house. I need a new stove and am wondering whether an upright stove (which I currently have) or a build in oven and cooktop is better. My husband is a handyman and could install a flat pack kitchen, does anyone recommend any Australian websites that show good designs.

Upright "commercial" style ovens are currently extremely popular but from a design and sanitation point of view have fewer redeeming features than a built in combination.
Upright ovens create intersticies in which preparation and cooking detritus can and will collect - I have not met many people who actually do regularly remove their upright from it's cavity to clean around it.
Ovens mounted underneath cooktop height are ergonomically unsound; one is required to bend or crouch to even look into the baking area, and lifting hot items from such a low height is also an inconvenience - ovens are much better mounted at a height of 650mm upwards to allow easy access.
Any good flatpack/ unassembled kitchen system should have the requisite cabinetry to accomodate a wall oven/ microwave or second oven combination.
