Are you thinking about remodeling your kitchen? Do you have a design style in mind? Most homeowners have a vision in mind going into a kitchen remodel, but one thing people overlook is their appliances. If this is you, don’t worry, we’re here to tell you how to choose appliances for a kitchen remodel!
Choosing your appliances should be one of the first things on your list. Homeowners tend to focus on brands, but we recommend thinking about how you cook, bake, store, and clean up.
You might be thinking, “why should I think about how I cook?”
Thinking about this will help guide you into creating a well-designed kitchen to fit all your needs, both aesthetically and essentially.
Things to Keep in Mind
Ask yourself, do you need more than four burners? Would you use a griddle if you had one? Next, weigh out the pros and cons of cooking with electric or gas and decide which one fits your needs best.
Are you a baker? Do you have a big family? Think about how often you bake and what types of foods you need to cook inside an oven. Would you benefit from having two ovens?
How often do you use a microwave? Do you use it for warming and thawing or just reheating and popcorn? Think about who uses your microwave because that will determine whether you should place it below the counter or above the counter.
Is it essential for you to have an even amount of space for both your fridge and freezer? Or do you use one more than the other? For example, if you buy more frozen food than fresh, then you’d want to have more freezer space and vise versa.
Do you need or want a dishwasher? If you do, you’ll need to think about how often you use it in order to choose the best one for you and your family.
Sinks come in various shapes and sizes. Do you want one or two bowls? The size will also vary depending on how many large pots and pans you use daily. Some homeowners choose to have a garbage disposal, and others don’t so decide what is best for you and your cooking needs.
