Gas Cooktop

Choosing a gas cooktop for your kitchen can seem like a simple affair at first glance. After all, as long as it cooks food, it should be good enough for you, right? Upon arriving at the showroom, however, you may find yourself surprised by the sheer number of options available! Going in with a plan can help you whittle your options down to choose the best gas cooktop for your needs and your space. Here are some of the things you should consider as you make your shopping plan.

How Much You Use (or Want to Use) Your Cooktop

It’s a fact that some households use their cooktops more often than others, so you’ll need to think carefully about your own situation. For those with large families or who fancy themselves amateur chefs, a larger cooktop with more burners could be beneficial if the space is available (more on that below). A typical family that uses their cooktop every day should be shopping for a standard, four-burner gas cooktop setup.

Current Space Requirements

Gas cooktops come in a number of different sizes which allows them to be installed into a variety of kitchen spaces. If you’re remodeling an existing space, your options may be limited to your current cooktop size unless you’re planning a more dramatic overhaul. If you’re shopping for a brand new kitchen space, you’ll have a little more latitude, but you should take your overall kitchen size into account as you shop. A cooktop plays a major role in maintaining a sense of balance and proportion in kitchen design, and choosing one that is too big or too small could upset these aesthetic qualities for your entire kitchen.

Other Aesthetic Qualities

Other aesthetic considerations should be made which will depend on the look you’re hoping to achieve in your new space. The most important of these should be the color of the cooktop. It’s typically underappreciated on its own, but a cooktop mismatched with the rest of the kitchen space is definitely noticeable and might become an eyesore every time you enter your space. Luckily, you can find a gas cooktop in a color that is sure to look great as part of your overall kitchen style!
