Tips in Choosing Major Kitchen Appliances

Kitchen appliances play a very important role in every kitchen.  With different appliances to do the cooking, freezing, dish-washing, and just about everything in the kitchen, life is so much easier.  Choosing an appliance for the kitchen may be very fun and exciting, but it can be very confusing too, especially if you want to get the right one.  This article will guide you in choosing major appliances in the kitchen, as well as considering the aesthetic for your home. The professional designers at Aspen Kitchens Inc. are trained to coordinate all aspects of your remodel into a well-streamed picture.

Below are just some of the kitchen appliances that need some considerable thinking before purchasing one.

  • Dishwasher

Gone are the days when dishwashers are big, bulky and noisy appliances.  Today, dishwashers are so quiet that you can’t even tell if it’s on.  In choosing a dishwasher, look for one that is discreet, in the sense that it features concealed control panels that are built into the top of the door.  And, to keep it from standing out, choose one with stylized paneling.  As much as possible, choose models with quieter motors and stainless-steel interiors to help minimize or even deaden dishwasher noise.

  • Refrigerator

Choosing what type of refrigerator, whether side-by-side, top-and-bottom, or built-in, will depend mostly on your preference.  However, the size of your refrigerator should also depend on the size of your family.  If you have a large family, then most likely you’ll need a large fridge to contain all your food and water needs.  In looking at size, take into account the length and width.  Also, if you plan to get a refrigerator with additional features, make sure they complement each other.  An external water dispenser wouldn’t go well with a paneled refrigerator since constant spills might damage the panel.

  • Cook-top / Stoves

Go for gas cook-tops that feature low-level BTU output settings.  This is very ideal for melting chocolate and making light sauces.  For maximum control, precise cooking, and consistent heating look for burners that have an inner and outer flame. 

If your budget does not permit you to get a gas cook-top, you can go for an electric residential cook-top, which is less expensive, but it may not have the same precision as gas models.

These are just some tips on choosing the right kitchen appliances.  If you want to learn more, do some research on the product specifications and see whether it suits your needs.

Remember that the materials of your cabinets and counter-tops also should play a part in helping you choose which appliances to go for. Call Aspen Kitchens Inc. today to begin a consultation for your dream Kitchen remodels colorado springs!
