Kitchen/refrigerator issue

Need help with Kitchen refrigerator area. I'm having some cabinets redone and crown molding added. I want to have a built in look for the fridge, so that maybe cabinets or a closet will go in the empty space to the right of it, as well as a small cabinet over the top of it. Questions are;

1. Am trying to not sheet rock this area. But not sure what an oak plywood "slab" would like like on the right side, adjoining the sheetrock which continues down the hall. My cabinet guy has the same issue. Although he did say that we could use a "slab" looking piece of plywood and dress it up with molding. We never came up with a solution yet. Any ideas?

2. Doube ovens to the left of the fridge. Should we move them out from the wall so that they are flush with fridge or leave them offset a bit?

Thanks

There are some samples from Houzz here, I like the first one best and I think it would work perfectly with your space.

Because the fridge and oven are not flush, I think they would look better not butted up together unless the oven was built out more..I would move the fridge over more..fill that gap between oven and fridge with a staggered unit / trim/ something...which ties into the cabinetry which will go around the fridge.

Hi Speedy, probably move the double oven flush with the fridge would look better.

what is behind the inside wall in back of fridge could you perhaps recess the fridge in to be flush with the ovens?

If you go with the flush look... In your case since your guy gave you a 30" cabinet for your ovens (I usually do a 33" cabinet which gives a small amount of cabinet showing to the right and left of the ovens) You would do well to keep that panel to the left of the refrigerator... it will break up the metal on metal look... Usually it's not necessary as the side of the oven cabinet works as a panel!

Thank you all for the ideas! Ed, that is the color I just painted over, can you believe? However, it was only on two walls, so, I went with the old standby, beige. I know, I know. Wanted to do a silver, but given the amount of natural light available, I kept it as light as possible. Kitchen has only two windows and opens into the dining with limited natural light.

Speedy, bear in mind that the doors to your refrigerator will be outside of the side panels similar to momof5x example 'kitchen at the coast".
