If you designed it to allow for a stove then yes, you could. This one I designed with angled drawers and roll outs instead.

I don't see why not, I would look into different manufacturers to see if anyone offers a curved cooktop to match.

How much does this cost?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natural flooring. Flooring in an Asian-style kitchen feels organic and warm. Bamboo is a fail-safe choice, but consider slate or another natural stone as well. Exotic hardwoods also look appropriate.
