Usually stoves are positioned against a wall. Is there any reason why I can't have a stove near a window in the center of the room?
The stove is currently in the position on the left, against the wall, next to the sink. The proposed position is on the right. There will be an island on the left of the new stove too, which is not shown.
The reason for the change is to get more countertop next to the sink. Also, it will be easier to vent the stove outside (the current cooktop is not vented). Also, the gas run will be shorter (the current stove is electric).
