Niche behind stove: yay or nay?
Does anyone have an opinion on (or experience cooking with) a niche behind their stove? The pics I’ve seen make it look cool, but when I searched older threads it sounds like some people really like theirs, but others hate it. I‘m also wondering how easy it will be to reach it because I’m short. Alternatively, I’ve seen stoves with a section of stainless steel as a backsplash, and sometimes those have shelves. Is this a good idea? Or should I just say no and have a continuation of the backsplash? (I plan to get a slide in stove). FWIW, I am finalizing my cabinet design, and currently the plan is to have a pull out spice rack to the left of the stove (so, in theory, the olive oil etc could go there). Thanks for your help.
