First of all, you have to determine how easy your access to basement or attic, and any adjacent circuits is.

The easiest ways are typically up and over or down and up from an existing receptical.

Range and dryer wireing is going to vary with the individual appliances, but is typically 50 amps for Ranges and 30-40 for Dryer. The wire guages have minimums, but may need to be larger depending on length of the wire run, and local codes.
