Hi there, I have a Cape Cod with an 11 x 15 kitchen that needs updating. One of the items I am researching is what is going on behind the stove - it's a gas range set up against two walls, in the corner. Two pieces of heatboard have been installed, I'm told the previous owners had a fire from the ranges closest to the wall - or maybe the threat of a fire, no idea what's behind the board.
The kitchen needs to be renovated cheaply for resell in a few years. I'm thinking right now that my options are to see if the stove can be moved, or what I can do to replace/update the backsplash for something more attractive.
Anyone have experience with these things?
