Design Trend: Three Ways to Introduce the SideOpening Wall Oven into your Kitchen

The oven. The power to fill the home with delicious aromas. The sense of anticipation as we turn on the interior light to brightly illuminate favorite recipes, patiently waiting for them to finish baking. For years, the oven has been a staple in the kitchen, often installed vertically stacked, or presiding under the a cooktop. And while these design options are here to stay, what if this traditional design aesthetic was challenged with something not only beautiful, but also easily accessible and ergonomically sound? Enter the Bosch SideOpening Wall Oven .

First, let’s start with understanding why the SideOpening Wall Oven has taken off within the interior kitchen design industry. From our conversations with designers across the country, Bosch heard that the number one reason their clients have selected the Bosch SideOpening Wall Oven is that the oven flips convention on its head—or at least the oven door position. The side swing door helps make it easier to insert and remove heavy pans from the oven. This is a function of ergonomic design that homeowners and designers alike see as providing true value to their daily life in the kitchen. The goal at Bosch is always to help simplify the life of consumers, and the SideOpening Wall Oven does just that.

In addition to the functionality of this product, one of the reasons we love this oven is because of its design versatility. With three unique installation options, including the choice of a Left Side or Right Side Swing door, the SideOpening Wall Oven fits a variety of kitchen designs, creating a show-stopping kitchen where form truly meets function. Let’s take a look at just three of the design options that can be achieved using this unique product.

Design Option #1: Upgrade Your Wall Oven Replacement

With the endless run of appetizers, entrees, side dishes and desserts that are ushered out of the kitchen and onto the dinner table, the oven has likely been put to the test over the last few years. And if this extra cooking has you thinking about replacing their current wall oven, you may want to consider the Bosch SideOpening Wall Oven. In addition to the striking, yet functional SideOpening door, this wall oven was designed to install flush into most wall oven cutouts, making the transition from a standard opening wall oven to a SideOpening oven all the more seamless.

Design Option 2: Dazzle with French Doors

Just as the concept of a French Door has moved from the exterior parts of the home to rooms within the interior of the home and even the refrigerator , why not extend this visually appealing design to double wall ovens? For this design option, consider placing two SideOpening Wall Ovens side by side, each with their handles facing inward to create a beautiful, French Door appearance.

Design Option 3: Expand Your Horizons

Horizontal oven installation, like this installation in the Sierra Way home, designed by the ThomBoy Properties, is a sleek and eye-catching design choice that is sure to make a statement in any modern kitchen. But, the side swinging door is not the only design element at play within this installation.

It’s all in the details. This obsession with perfection (no matter how small the detail) allows this oven installation to be a true work of art. Bosch ovens are designed with matching components, from handles to doors and user interface so that they can perfectly align when installed side by side. The end result is a clean, integrated look that is inspiring kitchen design conversations across the country.

While the finish of an appliance has always been a point of inspiration for a kitchen, perhaps it’s time to consider the structure of an appliance to inspire next kitchen renovations. Which of these oven installations will be added to your kitchen design mood board?
