How do I fix the space between the stove and counter?

Part of me says, 'just move the stove over to the counter'. But, we are just grandma and two teenage girls in my house. I am used to having my husband around to solve these problems. What I am worried about is the gas hose...So, I thought I would ask you guys if you have another fun, different, etc., way, to bridge the gap.

    they left your gas line visible??? that usually is tucked into a hole in the wall. you can make a smaller shelf on rollers the type many wat to stick beside a fridge and a counter. the fridge needs air to the coils, stoves don't have that issue.

    One of these might work.

    if you like the top solid, go to Home Depot, get a 6” or whatever size board and ask them to cut you exactly the length you need. If that’s too low, cut two of them and glue together.

    If you mean the top edge you can get a piece of metal for that purpose at Lowe's. I think it's called Gap Eraser.

    Moving the stove to the counter can interfere with the electrical outlet. I go with Dfm suggestion. You can make or buy a small shelf bin on rollers to fill the gap. Great for cookie sheets, baking pans, etc. If you buy, just make sure it's made of wood and not plastic next to the stove.

    I personally think it would be better to move the stove over, because of your gas line. I wouldn't want to be hitting it on a regular basis with a moveable shelf unless you put some kind of stopper in front of it. Alternatively, I would build a tray organizer (tall vertical box) and screw it to the cabinet on the right, but then you can't access the line.

    Perfect spot for a pull out shelving unit.

    I would move the stove over a little, enough to cover the gas line. Be careful when you do, it looks like the gas line is being squeezed behind the stove. Pull it out some and then move it over. Don't push it all of the way back, you should have a little room for the gas line. Then get a rollaway spice cabinet to go between the stove and cabinet.

    You can get a "spacer" from Lowes. It is like a little cabinet. just a piece of wood. And you can also get a little piece of cabinet top to match the existing cabinet. When it is installed no one will know. Been there done that.

    Many folks make roll out narrow shelves for their spices.
