Also asked, is it OK to put stove next to fridge?
Our kitchen and bath designers recommend a minimum of 9 inches between the stove and any wall or refrigerator and prefer 15 to 20 inches of space between the refrigerator and any cooktop or stove. The reason is safety and convenience. You want the refrigerator in a convenient place but not too close to the stove.
Secondly, where should a refrigerator be placed in the kitchen? If the kitchen is long and narrow, it would be best to place the fridge directly in front, so there's enough room for the user to open the door without incommoding anyone and without letting touch the walls or cabinets.
Just so, what can I put between stove and refrigerator space?
Cabinet. Most kitchen, even very small ones, have a small cabinet you can place between the stove and the refrigerator. For energy conservation, such a cabinet should be at least 9 inches wide. It can fit flush against the oven but should sit several inches from the refrigerator.
How far should stove be from wall?
The standard clearance recommended by the National Fire Protection Agency is 36 inches. This means that the back of the stove should be 36 inches away from any combustible material, such as woodwork, unprotected walls, furniture and even firewood.
