Choosing Appliances for Your Kitchen

Choosing Appliances for Your Kitchen

Whether you are renovating your entire kitchen or just doing an update, choosing the best appliances for your space can seem like a tricky task. The market is flooded with countless brands, styles, and finishes so it can feel overwhelming, but by making a few key decisions it will help you narrow down your options. 

Appliances can change the design aesthetic of your kitchen, so it is important to spend a bit of time before you make a purchase. Ideally, you will not need to replace your appliances for several years, so you want to make sure you are happy with what you choose.

Budget. First things first with this and any large purchase for the home: decide on what you want to spend and do your best not to exceed that. It is easy to get persuaded into upgrades and features you may need or want, so keep that in mind. 

Lifestyle. Think about choosing appliances that will work for your family and your lifestyle. If you don’t cook much, you should consider basic appliances that won’t break the bank. There is no need for a double oven or a custom range hood that will not get much use. On the other hand, if you cook often and like to entertain, you may want to invest in those upgraded features.

Finish. There are many finishes to choose from these days, ranging from basic black and white, to black stainless, slate gray, as well as custom finishes. While stainless options are popular and lend a modern vibe to your kitchen, every home is unique, and it just might not be your taste. Or, if you don’t love the idea of your appliances being focal points in your kitchen, you can explore the custom route and match them to your cabinets.

Space. Measure the space you have for each appliance, and then measure again. Knowing the exact size of the appliance you are looking for can help weed out ones that will not work, making your decision easier! If you have a large kitchen, take advantage of that if you need more cubic feet in your fridge space, or a wider-than-average range. On the flip side, if your kitchen is small, make sure you choose appliances accordingly as to avoid your space feeling cramped.
