Under counter or wall oven?

What do you consider the best height for an oven?

We are building a new kitchen extension and are keen on a wall oven. Partly to allow room for two ovens (useful but not essential), but also to have the oven at a height which might be kinder on my knees and back 20 years from now.

However, having the oven under the counter would solve some space dilemmas.

I would be really interested to hear preferences for oven height? Is it really handy having the oven at a height which requires less bending? Or not that big a deal really?

I would be especially interested to hear from anyone at an age where they can feel their back stiffening up a little!

Many thanks
