In that kitchen post, Joni noted that a trend that has gained in popularity in the United States is the use of a range with ovens underneath (as opposed to wall ovens), and the use of the range and range hood as focal point. As Joni noted, “Europe, with their less frequent use of wall ovens, has long made the range and hood the center of attention”. I remember thinking that this was a very strange concept indeed – who would ever want a kitchen without a big window as the focal point?
The cover kitchen from the At Home in Arkansas Kitchen and Bath issue featured a kitchen with the range and hood on the main wall of the kitchen.
