A new stove will be one of the biggest investments you make during a kitchen makeover, no matter if your cook space is 40 square feet or 400. The good news? Small stoves are more affordable than larger models, making them ideal for the budget-conscious renovator and tiny home or apartment dweller.
Electric stoves can come with glass or coil tops, suiting a more modern or traditional look depending on your preference. While there are plenty of simple models to be found, there are also quite a few small electric stoves that manage to fit in some fantastic bonus features, for under $1,000.
