Shopping for appliances just got easier.
Whether you’re renovating your kitchen or the dishwasher just broke, appliances are a tough item to shop for. Before starting, figure out two things: budget and available space. Once those two things are determined, the fun can really begin!
Do you want all stainless steel? An ice maker in your fridge? What is a warming drawer anyways? Modern day appliances give you so many choices that the options seem almost endless. Have no fear; we’ve put together a few tips to help you choose the perfect appliance for your home.
Ask the Right Questions
Choosing the right refrigerator is a big task. When shopping, be sure to ask yourself the basic questions, such as: Do I want a water dispenser? Is there a built-in filter? Do I need adjustable shelves? However, it’s also good to ask some not-so top-of-mind questions, as well. We recommend the following: Which way does the door need to swing? What kind of food shopper are you (once-a-week vs. daily)? Do you need special lighting? What about finishes? If this seems daunting, try speaking with a designer or appliance sales person–they’ll make shopping a breeze!
Be Aware of Your Needs
Dishwashers have come a long way–from the classic pull down to an innovative drawer option. When shopping for a dishwasher, a few good points of consideration are noise, racks, cycles, and soil sensors. Need space for oddly shaped serving dishes, as well as wine glasses? Look for a dishwasher with adjustable racks. Have little ones at home? Check out a unit with a sani-wash cycle, which is perfect for baby bottles. Additionally, if you’re more concerned with the design, choose a paneled dishwasher designed to blend in with cabinetry.
Consider Your Options
Induction, gas, or electric? Decisions, decisions, decisions… There are pros and cons to each. Electric ranges are often the most cost effective, but they usually have a slow change in heat. Gas stoves allow you to use any type of pan and provide instant heat; however, not all properties are fit with a gas line. Induction cooktops are energy efficient and only react to certain metals (no more burnt fingers!); yet, the cost for induction is a bit higher than the other options. Before purchasing, weigh out all options, to ensure you’re getting what works best for you!
Don’t be Afraid
Think outside the typical appliances. Warming drawers may not seem like a necessity; however, once you have one, you won’t know how you ever cooked without it! Eliminate the headache of meticulously planning out how to perfectly time all the components of your meal to ensure optimum temperature. Instead, simply place the completed dishes into the warming drawer, while the rest of dinner (or breakfast) finishes. After all–no one wants soggy, reheated French bread!
