Looking at apartments and I found one that has this picture in their gallery.
Wasn’t there anyone in the design or the photographer or someone who noticed something kind of wrong about the picture? Unless of course I am just incapable of judging distances (which I wouldn’t put past me) that oven door isn’t going to open.
My husband and I went to an apartment like that. The oven would only open about a foot. The guy showing us the apartment was so proud of the ginormous fridge that he was able to get real cheap-like. Yeah.
There are two dimensions that you can’t really tell from any of the photos - how far the stove is from the refrigerator, and how much the refrigerator sticks out from the counter. From the other two kitchen photos, it looks like a near thing, enough so that I wouldn’t rule out the apartment unless I went there and proved it to myself (and of course calling and asking first could save a trip).
Looks like page 7 is the floor plan - if it is to scale - I’d say there is enough room.
Even if it isn’t - it’s hard to tell for sure, but I’d bet money (not a lot) there is enough room.
Another point of comparison is the sink - based on plan/photos it looks like the door has at least as much room as that sink. Mine looks similar - and is wider than my oven door sticks out. Can’t say they are the same size of course.
Those floor tiles look to be 12X12. The stove seems to be taking up half of one and the frig is taking up maybe a third? I’d say there’s roughly 13, maybe 14 inches available for the stove door.
Just measured my (admittedly old and crappy) oven door. Came out to 20 inches.
It looks to me as if will be really close !!
Most cabinet and counter-tops and stoves are 24" deep… so it appears the cabinets are shallower than normal.
Consider the tiles on the floor… which appear to be 12x12.
There are two “bigger than half” tiles between front of stove and side of fridge.
Just guessing 5/8 by the stove (7 1/2") and 3/4 by the fridge (9") =16 1/2".
My oven door is approx. 17"…
So…really close !!
Oh I think the fridge sticks out far enough to clip it (if the stove is close enough - depth wise). Those pics have the fridge edge almost exactly parallel to the door - so if the camera person moved to the left - you wouldn’t have been able to see the whole stove.
If it were a one off I could imagine a mistake like that happening.
In a complex full of new units usually a few are built out and inspected before singoff is given to complete them all, I find it hard to believe they wouldn’t catch a mistake like that and correct it before completing the complex.
Using the size of the electric outlet on the right of the stove as a guide, I was guessing 9x9 tiles. But it doesn’t really matter. The oven door is about 1.75 tiles long. Looking at the two tiles that encompass the space between the oven and the fridge, the oven sits about a quarter of a tile into one of them. That means we’d have to have a full tile on the other one in order for the door to open. Not accounting for the angle the picture is taken at, I measure it as about half a tile, although my eye wants to say it’s closer to two thirds.
Think about this too: Even if that oven door will open all the way, will you be able to stand directly in front of it when you pull that boiling hot roast or turkey out of it?
I think when you are putting large pots into or out of the oven, especially taking hot stuff out, you need to have the right maneuverability to stand right in front of the oven and get a really good grip on whatever it is.
