The home appliances that you choose for your kitchen can make or break the space you create.
The perfect kitchen is about much more than simply picking a wonderful kitchen design. However, when people choose a new kitchen they tend to get caught up with thinking about their choice of cabinetry and countertop – and the walls and the floors even. Often, the kitchen appliances are almost an afterthought.
And, if they are, that can be a massive mistake.
Kitchen appliances must meet the needs of your kitchen space
Choosing wisely when it comes to your kitchen appliances is vital. Naturally, it’s important that the appliances you choose complement both your chosen colour scheme and overall design aesthetic. For example, Stainless Steel is a great fit for any contemporary and ultra-modern style.
Functionality and practicality are important too
Above all, although it is important that your appliances fit your favoured style and design, it is vital to remember that the kitchen is ultimately a busy working and living space. Looking good is one thing, but the new appliances you pick need to be functional and practical too.
They need to be a perfect match for the lifestyle you and your family leads. Not only that, the appliances need to be a good fit for the way you cook and like to entertain.
Your kitchen appliances should make your life easier!
How do I set my budget for new appliances?
The best advice we can give is that when you set your budget for your new kitchen you factor in appliances too. Many people are left disappointed when they go to buy new appliances, as they haven’t budgeted properly leaving them with less than they hoped for.
You will have your own ‘must-haves’ and ‘red lines’ – but you need to know how much you have to play with.
Feature-packed v Affordable Appliances
A costly option does not always mean that it is the best choice out there. Some people opt for the most expensive kitchen appliances because, well, is that not an indicator that they are the best? Not always!
It pays to shop around and the most important thing to think about is the features that you really need. What will you use day-to-day?
What are the top brands for small kitchen appliances?
Juno, Miele, Hoover – there are a wide range of brands out there that will enable you to discover new and ingenious ways of doing things.
You can prepare chef-quality meals with ease, experiment with new styles of cooking, a prep dishes with a new-found ease.
As we said before, it’s best to shop around and to think carefully about the features that you really need to make cooking – and life in general – that much easier.
Be more energy efficient with a new dishwasher
With rising energy bills and concerns about the environmental impact of the energy we use in our home, there’s never been a better time to think about how you can be more energy efficient.
Invest in a new dishwasher
If you are running a dishwasher in your home which is more than 10 years old, then you could be using five times as much water as you would running a modern efficient model.
Older dishwashers will also consume a lot more electricity, take longer to finish the job and are generally less energy-efficient than modern brands. Energy Star rated dishwashers with quick wash cycles are a real benefit.
