What are some tips on preventing electric range messes?

I'm not talking cleaning them, but preventing the messes in the first place.
You see, I am buying a new electric range and it is to be delivered tomorrow. I have 5 adults (three are young adults) in this house right now and it's a battle getting them to clean up after themselves, but that's for another post. The point is that I'm trying to come up with creative ways to keep my new stove nice looking and to prevent filth altogether.
I know there are a lot of seriously safety minded folks out there and while I'm not feckless I'm also not overly concerned with it, so ideas such as disposable drip pans, or oven liners, are fine by me.
Are there any other tips out there? Also I'm really looking for stove-top ideas since that appears to be the biggest problem.
