How to Choose the Best Kitchen Appliances for Your Home

Choosing the right kitchen appliances for your new build or renovation can be a bit tricky. There’s a lot to consider, like what are the top kitchen appliances in the marketplace right now, and what appliances will work best in the home. Often, these two questions go hand-in-hand.

Appliances, on their own, do not make a kitchen, but they are one of the more important aspects of the space. Here are a few ways you can make those tough decisions a little easier:

 

COOKTOPS: NARROW DOWN THE TYPE FIRST

Do you want a gas, electric, or induction cooktop? Deciding this before going appliance shopping can narrow down your options significantly. This choice should be more personal than aesthetic, unless you’re not much a cook and prefer the way a gas range looks as opposed to an electric cooktop.

 

 OVENS: ONE OR TWO? 

A newer trend that’s been appearing in many kitchens throughout the Okanagan is the emergence of dual ovens. Although this trend has been around for a long time, it’s starting to become much more popular. If you find yourself preparing lots of large meals or baking a variety of different cakes and cookies in one go, dual ovens may be right for you. If your baking and cooking needs are a little simpler, one oven will work just fine.

 

 RANGE HOODS: BLEND FUNCTIONALITY WITH STYLE

Range hoods come in a variety of different styles. Besides choosing a hood that’s adequate for your cooktop, you’ll also want to consider the way it will look in your new kitchen design. You can even choose what kind of finish the hood comes with. Steel, built-in, and glass are all popular choices at the moment.

 

 REFRIGERATORS: MAKE, MODEL, CONFIGURATION, AND FINISH

Refrigerators are one of the most important appliances in the kitchen, and they’re also the most difficult to pick. The aesthetic options are endless as are the features. Some of the things to consider include:

• Freestanding or built-in

• Finish: stainless steel, coloured, or fully integrated

• Ice machine and water dispenser

• Coffee or hot water dispenser

• French door, top freezer, bottom freezer, or side-by-side configuration

Once you determine what style and finish you prefer, you’ll have a much easier time picking a model for your home.

 

 

 DISHWASHERS: NO TWO DISHWASHERS ARE ALIKE

Just like refrigerators, there are a few things to consider about the dishwasher of your preference. Drawer dishwashers or traditional-style dishwashers are both popular options. You’ll also need to decide on the finish. Do you want it to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your cupboards, or would you prefer the finish to match the other appliances?

 

 THE EXTRAS: WINE FRIDGES AND MORE

Once you’ve got your major appliances picked out, consider the smaller appliances. Is a beverage fridge important to you? Would you benefit from a microwave? How about a warming drawer? All of these additional items can help make your kitchen the perfect place to prepare a meal.
