I biult this little cooking area in 1 day
I forgot to take before pictures (I hate it when I do that) but this is what I did yesterday on a rental of mine. The original wall was pretty bad, white bathroom tile stained with years of grease and a 3/4 gas pipe that was protruding out of the wall from the ceiling to the ground. Also there was an outlet located right above the original stove with no ground since the house is very old. The original hood vent was so disgusting and dated back to the 60's or 70's. So I removed an upper cabinet including the vent and the 7" ducting and chucked all that first. Installed a 3'4 piece of plywood to act as a bracket to hold the over the range microwave and also ran a dedicated 120v line from the box to the microwave. Than I built out the wall with scrap pieces of 2x4 and more 3/4 plywood to cover up the gas line and than I relocated the receptacle down all the way to the bottom as to make it out of sight at to accommodate the new stove. Also added a common ground to it for safety and tamperproof plug. Lastly I went to lowes bought some of that oxide slate backsplash and mortared it onto the board with some sealer. The microwave cost me $300 and the oven (Bertazonni made in Italy) was $2399 at Pacific sales. I think I spent a little over $3k with all the materials, everyone seems to like it. Wachoo tink?
Oh and no I don't want to change the cabinets because it'll cost too much. I will do a granite countertop soon and some more back splashing.

You'll spend $2400 on an oven but can't afford to replace those ugly ass cabinets?
Edit: How far out does the oven protrude?DRINK MORE SCOTCH.

I was gonna say thats a pretty nice range for such ugly cabinets. You could always just put a coat of paint on them.

Those who are complaining about the cabinets must not own rental properties or if they do may not be making any money from them ... lol the cabinets looks just fine to me! If anything just spray them with a paint sprayer and be done. Over and wall looks great bro!
