Stove | Range Clearances

Kitchen Stove | Range Clearances illustrate the minimum safe and efficient measurements for a functional range center. Concerned primarily with the space in front of the stove, a minimum ‘Work Zone’ of 40” | 102 cm should be provided to accommodate the human body and the various movements and motions associated with cooking. It is recommended that the minimum clearance distance between kitchen appliances be set between 48”-60” | 122-152 cm to permit comfortable circulation between multiple work surfaces and appliances in the kitchen at the same time. Above the cooktop surface, the ventilation hood should be placed a minimum of 24” | 61 cm from the stove and selected with a maximum depth of 18” | 46 cm to allow a person to cook without accidentally hitting their head on the hood.
